Audio: Steelers GM Kevin Colbert, HC Mike Tomlin Post 2014 NFL Draft Press Conference

Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert and head coach Mike Tomlin addressed the local media at the conclusion of the 2014 NFL Draft to discuss the nine players that were selected over the course of the last three days. In case you have yet to hear it, below is the audio from the press conference.


  • Milliken Steeler

    I like the draft except for Archer in the 3rd. That is to high for him and we could have grabbed Desir at CB which is a glaring need.

  • Aric Brown

    I feel the same way, but I don’t think they were interested in Desir…

    they clearly were not … i think they were targeting Gaines


    As usual, you and I are of like mind! Yesterday I saw an article that said that Martavis Bryant will be under the microscope becuz his pick should have been used for a CB. I replied that Archer is the guy who is in that role becuz rd 3 still had a TON of talented CBs available in all shapes and sizes.
    Had we taken a CB in rd 3 I think you could argue this draft would have been damned near perfect.
    I like Archer, but would definitely preferred to get him where we took the CB – round 5. He will hopefully keep AB off the field on punts, and will return kicks, but beyond that he’s pure gadgetry unless they can convert him to WR.


    I think they targeted Fuller in rd 1 and then had to recover, which they did nicely.
    Particularly like the NT taken in rd – we need that!

    apparently it was already put out that it was gilbert or nothing according to inside sources … if true
