Default What is your worst fear for this draft?

Mine is that the Steelers overreach for a RB. History shows that they get their rear end kicked almost every time they do that. I don't want to see a back before round 4.

one or more of our picks getting a major injury in the preseason (again)

i don't think we will reach for a RB but if we do, well... I'll just say the FO knows better than me, so I'll just hope the guy pans out like we hope. I'll wait till the season to make judgement calls on our picks.

Overrated OLB or WR in the 1st

If Vaccaro isn't there I would like a trade down....The draft is too deep in the middle to be reaching in the 1st in a draft lacking elite at the top talent

Yeah, I agree that I don't want us reaching for a running back. If we have to pick one:

Nobody I want in the first.
Franklin or Bernard in the second.
Michael or Ellington in the third.
Gillislee or Maysonet in the fourth.
Kerwynn Williams in the fifth.

Agreed. If we do, well, that's the guy we need to root for.



But if he starts hesitating, avoiding contact, fumbling and twittering racist thoughts and 9/11 conspiracy theories, I'm gonna be unhappy.
