Armchair GM: Which UDFAs Have the Best Chance of Making it?

Each year 256 college players get selected in the NFL Draft. Each year the college ranks produce about 350 players who have the ability to play in the NFL. Each team gets 13 Undrafted Free Agents so only about one quarter of those players make the 350 cut. That averages out to about 2 or 3 UDFAs  per team who have a chance of...

Armchair GM: Tomlin and Timmons Need to Hug it Out

The Steelers didn’t select any Inside Linebackers in the 2018 Draft and the player they added in Free Agency, Jon Bostic has been either under performing or injured most of his career.

Armchair GM: Is Jon Bostic Long/Short Term Answer at ILB?

The addition of journeyman Inside Linebacker, Jon Bostic, makes it all but certain Lawrence Timmons will not be coming back to the Steelers but is Bostic the long term answer? Is he a player they just want to plug into the ILB spot anticipating Ryan Shazier’s eventual return? Jon Bostic was a 2nd Rd pick of the Chicago...
