• Steelers Sign 10 Undrafted Free Agents

    The completion of the draft sparks the commencement of the land rush for undrafted free agents, with teams aggressively pursuing players who weren’t among those on whom the 32 teams squatted in the seven rounds of the selection process. The Steelers are among the first to announce the signing...
  • 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...
  • 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, not strong, not...
  • Steelers Select OLB Travis Feeney in the 6th Round

    In Washington’s Travis Feeney, the Pittsburgh Steelers got a rotational pass-rusher who instantly injects athleticism into the outside linebacker group. Feeney’s an All-Pac-12 second-team performer who had 17.5 tackles for a loss and eight sacks last season. My take: This is ridiculous upside for the sixth round. Check out...
  • 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...
  • Steelers Select OT Jerald Hawkins in the 4th Round

    Deep Steelers O-line gets even deeper with LSU’s Jerald Hawkins in 4th round The Pittsburgh Steelers selected their first offensive player of the 2016 NFL draft in the fourth round, grabbing with 6-foot-6, 305-pound LSU tackle Jerald Hawkins with the 123rd overall pick. It’s hard to find good tackles...
  • Steelers Nab Safety Sean Davis in the 2nd Round

    Talk about cornering the market. The Steelers chose defensive backs with their first two picks, erasing any doubt about which position they intend to improve. Second-round safety Sean Davis from Maryland teams with first-round cornerback Artie Burns from Miami to bolster a secondary that ranked among the league’s worst...
  • The Bengals Jackson Pick: A Punk Move by a Punk Team

    The Cincinnati Bengals will never succeed as long as they pull moves like this. While the Bengals did have a need for a Cornerback it was deemed lower on the priority list by majority of the pundits. Wide Receiver, Running Back, Defensive Line and Offensive line needs were all...

The Roethlis-Burger
