Watching Barkley play, I'd say it's probably close to legit. Hopefully he doesn't get dinged for being a PSU RB because that kid is special.

Another guy who I like right now as our Round 1 pick next year, his playing style reminds me of Karl Joseph. Really look forward to seeing his senior season.



I was also impressed with this guy as well, he would be a great addition to this offense. He's going to be a Round 1 guy as well.

CB might not even get drafted next year. I think they're going to finish the year with 4 really good young guys, plus two of the serviceable Cockrell, Gay, or Sensabaugh.

Safety, on the other hand-- I could see that. TE, Safety, QB, and probably RB all will be in play.

If Ben sticks around QB wont be drafted
OL seems to be riding a nice wave all around
TE seems acceptable to the Steelers
If JuJu makes a mark WR isnt a huge priority and Bryant is here til 2019
Tuitt signs and that takes DL off the list.
Just dont see the Steelers putting primo investment at FS. I cant remember the last time they invested large there

That leaves RB OLB ILB CB SS as either wait and see or priority needs

I think Bud and TJ will be given at least til the 2019 draft til the Steelers spend premium picks at OLB again and if Burns continues to impress I think CB is gonna be flyer and or developmental picks.

Everyone wants Davis to be the answer at SS. Hasnt really happened yet. ILB is puzzling to me right now. RB I just dont believe in handing Bell 12M per year plus longterm. I hope the Steelers look to draft his replacement and tag him a 2nd and final time next year.

I think the first 3 RDs the Steelers are looking for at least 2 of RB ILB SS.

Sean Davis is gonna be fine-- truly, he's more FS type, but Mitchell isn't versatile enough to be exposed in coverage as a SS.

I would take another hybrid type S just like Davis in a heartbeat. Perhaps Brian Allen is that guy. That could work at some point.

2018 Starters: CB Burns-FS Davis-SS Allen-CB Golson-CB Sutton

Reserves: S Stafford, CB Cockrell, CB Gay, CB Sensabaugh

Damn good.

I like that idea but until I see Allen listed at S I think the Steeler will only ever play him at CB which is unfortunate.

That could be a helluva 2ndary

Unless they get lucky with Allen and Golson they will still need a starter at either outside corner or slot. Both Gay and Cockrell need to go.
A coverage safety is needed to replace Mitchell.
Could go inside linebacker, depending on how Williams looks as a starter.
Unless they suck they would have to trade up using a lot of picks for the qb which is not like the Steelers.
TE is in play but they didn't show any interest upgrading this year knowing the were parting ways with
Mr. Injury.

1.S
2.CB
3ILB
4.OLB
5.TE
6.DT
7.G

Thing about CB is: They have Burns, Golson, Sutton, Allen, and Cockrell. All are young. All have either draft investment or experience as a starter here. True, we have no real idea what any of them are going to be long-term, but I think odds are pretty damn good that 3 of those 5 become serviceable starters or better. Sutton, Allen, Golson, or even Cockrell could turn out to be a plus outside CB. Any of them could potentially play inside. I like the group's potential a lot.

this looks like a good year to get a run stuffing NT

Derrick Nnadi, Florida State
Vita Vea, Washington
Da'Ron Payne, Alabama
Lowell Lotulelei
Trenton Thompson, Georgia
Daylon Mack, Texas A&M

Of course most of them are juniors so they may not come out.

Thought it last season as well, and nothing ive seen so far has changed my opinion this season.
Sam Darnold is Ben Roethlisberger v2.0


That is all.

Riley Ferguson had a fantastic game vs UCLA today.

23/38 396 yards 6 TD 1 INT.

32 TD/10 INT last year. If he keeps playing like this he'll shoot up the boards. I know he was a top 10 QB prospect, which would give us a shot at him, but I could see him being one of the first 3 off the board with more games like this.

They're thinking is Bell exits and plays elsewhere. Notice where they have the Steelers picking? 8-)

32. Pittsburgh Steelers
Ronald Jones II, RB, USC. Let's say the Steelers don't meet Le'Veon Bell's contract demands during the 2018 offseason, and their star runner walks. That'd leave a huge hole in the backfield for Pittsburgh. While not as big as Bell, Jones II has similar game-breaking ability and has proven he can run effectively between the tackles. https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/new ... placement/

Safety
ILB
RB
CB
OL
DL
WR

Add Cody Thompson WR Toledo to your watch list.

4 straight 100 yard games to start the season. Lead the nation in YPC 2 years ago and was a 1000 yd + last year.

6'2" 210, runs very well and is a combat catcher. The best WR not named Corey Davis I've seen in the MAC recently.

He'll test well, and end up in the 3rd round range next year.

I think he's a similar player to Cooper Kupp who was drafted by the Rams in this past draft.

Agree. They are basically the same player, almost identical height/weight, speed, hands, etc. Kupp was an early 3rd rounder, right about where I think Thompson will go.

OLB Scales for Indiana has impressed me in the two games I've seen him, very active good speed. Tackles everything and can cover. Potential later round ILB.
