In the following order. Not necessarily the order you draft them.

1) Edge rusher who can contribute in the sub package right away and spell Dupree (who wore down last year)
2) ILB who can cover (and stay on the field)
3) Centerfielder or boundary corner (to kick Sutton to centerfield)
4) Space eating NT to platoon with Hargrave to keep both from wearing down
5) Sproles-like RB as insurance on Bell
6) Home run WR to replace Bryant in 2019
7) Dynamic TE to replace James in 2019
8) Guard to replace Foster in 2019



Ogbonniah Okoronkwo or Lorenzo Carter in round 2. LVE or Evans round 1. Plenty of 3rd round safety prospects. NT in the 7th round, I agree. RB with one of the 2 fifth rounders. WR in the 5th. Do not think they will take a TE in this draft. UDFA or late round G. I think they like Finney and think he can replace Foster next year.


He fails one of the most important metrics for a player...at least when it comes to talent evaluation on our board.


Haven't heard from Ron in a long time, we should be good.

Ron was gloating on twitter about his name theory.

Okoronkwo might get a pass, though, because his parents are actual Africans. Ron's theory hinges on "parents being dumb enough to name their kid" with a nontraditional name.

Guessing Ogbonnia qualifies as a traditional name in Nigeria.

I wish I liked Okoronkwo better as a player; great story.

Biggest child ever born in the history of the state of Florida, IIRC. 12 pounds.

That'll do some damage to the C gap...

How about a coach with a smidgeon of self-awareness?

The question is will Dupree remain a Steeler much longer. After this season I think he is gone. Some team will throw him a bone. I think the main needs to be addressed going forward are going to be OLB depth, DLine depth, ILB depth, Safety depth, WR depth, RB depth and OLine depth. Not necessarily in that order either.

So this is something to let sink in....

@MarkKaboly
Kevin Colbert said Cam Sutton can play corner, nickel and maybe even return punts this year. Didn't mention safety https://twitter.com/MarkKaboly/status/9 ... 2738401280
After the Burnett signing I guess they decided Sutton was a better corner/returner prospect. I couldn't find the thread where this was discussed but IIRC, some folks thought Sutton was the heir apparent once Haden was [about] done with his tour in Pittsburgh.

@MarkKaboly
Colbert said that the Steelers might not be done in free agency. Depends if somebody comes free who they might not expect. https://twitter.com/MarkKaboly/status/9 ... 4902218752
Hmmm....

To me, I think it's either OLB depth or RB depth.... the Steelers need both badly.

WR depth also...they basically have three guys and DHB right now.
