Yes. We have a need at ILB and we have four picks in the seventh rounder. If he's there when we pick our first seventh rounder, you absolutely take a flier on him. If we can get his head straight, it's a grand slam. If we can't... it's a seventh rounder.

he ran a 5.09 at the 40 in the combine

I say let's pick a punter with that pick or even a long snapper

Vontaze Burfict does not seem like the kind of guy that would be on the Steelers draft board, but then neither did Mike Adams.

Default Is Burfict worth a 7th round pick?

After the combine I wanted no part of this head case.
But, if Tomlin could convince him that his dream of playing football for millions may be slipping away......that all he has to do is reasonably control himself and follow the rules......we could possibly have the presence at ILB that is so "Steeler."
Lots of good wishes here but it is a seventh round pick.....and the possible upside?

I understand what you are saying about the risk/reward relationship but I seriously doubt Burfict is even on the Steelers draft board, personally, I wouldn't even waste a 7th round draft choice on him as there are still a lot of other very good players available.

I would, what else are you going to get with a 7th round pick that will probably wind up cut anyway?

The guy is a 1st round talent with apparently the worst composure of all prospects.

He reminds me of that linebacker from a few years ago, Willie Williams. Could have been a star but he was one that just couldn't keep his focus in the right places.

To me, he'd be worth the risk. But if Adams was really TOTALLY off our boards before his whole apology/counseling thing, I also seriously doubt Burfict is even a remote possibility. I doubt he's reached out to the Steelers and apologized the way Adams did.
