Seriously? Our defense was abused by no name QBs all year, including Kizer, and they were abused on the run more often than not. This draft should be almost all D. It's an embarrassment right now.

You think they would look at recent history to understand that can not waste draft picks

Archer
Rainey

Long Snapper
Punter

Borderline backup QB
Borderline Backup QB


And can someone please explain to me the infatuation with DeMarcus Ayers? The guy is not an NFL talent...not even bottom of the roster NFL talent. Not as a WR...not as a kick returner...not as a ball deflator.


Well, he looked very good with the Steelers in the small amount of opportunities he had.

I guess you're right, he hasn't caught on anywhere but I loved what I saw from that kid 2 seasons ago.

If we have 7 picks, 5 of 'em will be defensive players.

Maybe more.

We could have 25 picks and use them all on defense, and I'd still be concerned.

Something has gone wrong in the draft process on the defensive side of the ball...whether it's the metrics they're using to pick players, or the coaching up these players are receiving, we have struck out on an inordinate number of defensive picks...and that's even discounting Golson who flamed out without ever taking a regular season snap due to injury.

They re-signed Justin Thomas who by all means looked the part in camp/preseason last year. Could be an opening for him. Also Tucker has been hanging around as a practice squad player for a few years. Perhaps either can step right in and contribute. Although with Mann retiring I guess we'll see just how well the WR corps develops without his tutelage. My pick Deontay Burnett USC. Likely a higher pick with limited picks in this draft. Tough decisions. Perhaps a FA or UDFA later could fill that slot WR position?

Ehhh, couldn't draft OL for years and years....then they brought in Munchak and suddenly we're letting quality guys go to FA because we don't have a spot for them.

Like people have been saying, Porter and Lake haven't developed a single player. Not one. Here's the list of quality defensive players drafted/developed under Tomlin:
Timmons
Woodley (for a few years)
Worilds (for a few years)
Heyward
Probably Watt, Hargrave and Tuitt
Shazier (sadly, for a few years)

Did I miss anyone? Maybe 8 quality starters AFTER 11 YEARS!?!

Colbert has a track record of hitting on picks pretty much everywhere. I don't think he's the one to blame for that sad list above.
