There is a slam dunk pick here that also fits the Steelers MO. Don’t overthink it.

I don't generally pick for the Steelers' MO, but if I were... I'm not sure who that would be.

Their first round MO:

young player
position of need
productive in major conference
culture fit


Justin Reid

I will make an avatar bet for a year that there is zero chance the Pittsburgh Steelers will draft Justin Reid this year.

They seem very reluctant to pick early from out west-- Decastro was an exception. Their pro day is the same day as Ohio State, so chances are neither Tomlin nor Colbert is going to go to Stanford pro day (something they always do before picking a 1st round player) and... they simply don't believe they can chance an actual anthem protest in Heinz Field with their #1 pick. The fanbase fucking twisted themselves inside and out with apoplectic outrage from a non anthem protest, and don't think the ownership didn't notice.

I don’t buy the West angle. JuJu was West, too. I would guess Tomlin and Shaw know each other decently well as part of a small fraternity of pretty successful black coaches. I hadn’t thought of the protest angle. That will have been vetted during the interview process, so who knows. As you said, we will have a better idea after pro days.

I know that Justin did some interviews explaining support for the protest-- or, more accurately, he explained that he sees the protest as a form of civil rights protest and not a protest vs the military nor flag.

As for out West: (2) 1st round picks in 22 years. Decastro (fell unexpectedly to them) & Troy (obvious outlier).

I just don't think they feel as strongly about their scouting on the west coast or don't think highly of the Pac 12 or something along those lines.

Also, cheers to 58. Basically snagged two solid first round picks with his first and second picks. Jackson also being represented by my boy Gary Vaynerchuk's new venture, Vaynersports. Great dude, and wish him luck in the sports management foray. Wine Library TV was the best, and did a bunch for making a sort of stagnant wine industry a little more populist.

And hey, Nick Foles. Super Bowl MVP.

Ryan Tannehill is on the trade block for picks.

PM if interested.

He's ready to roll. He told us so. He could be yours. Let's make a deal.
