He's perfect for our Marty-ball offense.

So you want to keep Foster (who doesn't want to keep him???), but you don't like Beachum because he was a late-round pick. You do realize that Foster WASN'T EVEN DRAFTED.

he could be a bust or he could be a solid started for years to come and You won't know that if you don't play him IMO

Exactly.

Some Steelers fans were angry that Hines Ward was starting over the R1 pick (Troy Edwards). Once training camp starts, coaches could not care less when you were drafted; they cared how you perform... and Beachum performed very well.

Mike Webster was a R5 pick... who would not have started... except for the fact that he played well. The round that a player was drafted in has little to do with how good they will be.

Terrell Davis, Carl Nicks, Mike Webster - R5
Tom Brady, Greg Lloyd, - R6

Ryan Clark was never drafted... but, Anthony Smith was a R2 pick. I'd take Ryan Clark ANY day of the week. But, that's because I'm not fixated on the round that a player was selected.

Yep, because late round draft picks always flop and first rounders are always successful. That's why Ryan Leaf is getting ready for his hall of fame speech while that Tom Brady guy has been out of the league for several years now.

not exactly the same situation. he was damaged goods. tore up his knee in the playoff game vs denver.

Beachum survived his baptism of fire as a seventh rounder.
He certainly didin't show enough to project him as a solid starter/contributor and a reason our O-line will be better next year.
It could. But right now with what he showed it's a bit of a reach. Right now he's a backup. We've shuffled a bunch of them around here lately.

Which round was Antonio Brown drafted in when he replaced Hines Ward?

Uh, I know that. I was posing that question to Gofor7 because he seems to think that players drafted after the first round aren't any good. Thanks anyway.
