Steelers-Jets talked trade

NFL Network is reporting that the Steelers had a trade in place with the Jets to move up and get guard David DeCastro - something I tweeted they should do as DeCastro fell past the 15th pick.

The Jets wanted Quinton Coples or Bruce Irvin and when the Seahawks took Irvin with the 15th selection, the Jets decided to stick with their pick and take Coples rather than risk not getting their man in a trade down with the Steelers.

As luck would have it for the Steelers, they were able to stay where they were at and get DeCastro anyway.

Tells you why the Steelers were so excited about getting DeCastro on draft day and wasted no time getting their pick to the podium.

The Steelers also have the Bengals to thank.

Cincinnati, which needed a guard, passed on the chance to take DeCastro not once, but twice, deciding instead to trade back in the first round and take Kevin Zeitler.

I like Zeitler and think he'll be a solid player for a long time in the NFL. But DeCastro has an opportunity to be special.

It truly was a lucky fortunate draft for us. We could have lost more then likely either a 2nd or a 3rd and a 5th. Maybe no Mike Adams, more then likely no Sean Spence or Chris Rainey. Maybe even no Ta'amu as that would have cost us another pick in the 6th. WOW, WOW, and WOW.

When you have that kind of luck I'm surprised they traded up for Ta'amu. At least they didn't let it go to their heads.

considering how it all played out, trading up in the 4th mustve seen like absolutely nothing, seeing as they very well coulda been out of a 3rd AND a 4th if things went "as planned".

spence & ta'amu = gravy players.

we really lucked out......as the Jets really should have made that deal. They didn't have a bad draft, but certainly wasn't one of the best ones.
