Armchair GM – Steelers Draft Grade 'Incomplete'

Lot’s of Project Players. Wow, my head is spinning from this one. This Draft should have been very solid with easy to understand picks. It was anything but.

Steelers Grab WR/PR Demarcus Ayers in the 7th

The Pittsburgh Steelers’ first offensive skill player drafted in 2016 seems more of a punt returner than a wide receiver at the next level. Houston’s Demarcus Ayers, selected 229th overall, returned 28 punts for 290 yards and a touchdown last season. My take: No speed, no problem? Ayers’ 4.7 40-yard dash...
