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. The night started off badly with the Cincinnati Bengals pulling a low class move and being spoilers, drafting the very unfortunate William Jackson III, cornerback,...

Steelers Grab MLB Tyler Matakevich with Final Pick in the Draft

The Pittsburgh Steelers concluded their 2016 NFL draft with linebacker Tyler Matakevich, the 2015 Bronko Nagurski Award winner who helped usher Temple football back into prominence. Matekevich would likely compete at inside linebacker and special teams for the Steelers. My take: The rep on Matakevich is he’s not big,...

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...

Steelers Bolster DLine in the 3rd Select DT Javon Hargrave

Help has arrived for Heyward, Tuitt on passing downs. Why you should be excited about third-round pick Javon Hargrave: He had 63 career tackles for a loss and 37 career sacks in four seasons at South Carolina State (46 TFL and 29.5 sacks over the last two seasons, when he was named to the FCS All-America team each season)....
