Joey Porter Wants To Keep James Harrison’s Snap Count Down To 25

Even knowing that they only had Jason Worilds on a transition tag and projected to lose him the following year, and only signed free agent Arthur Moats to a one-year, veteran-minimum contract, the Pittsburgh Steelers entirely ignored the outside linebacker position in the 2014 NFL Draft, and only carried three…


Steelers Greatest Draft Steals

Backups and special teamers. That’s typically the fruit of third day draft selections. But every once in a while, a real hidden gem is found in the late rounds and the Pittsburgh Steelers have proven better at digging them up than most teams. Will there be a Steelers player selected…

“Horrible” Wait For Dupree Lands “Gift” In Steelers’ Lap

With the 22nd overall pick in the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft, the Pittsburgh Steelers selected outside linebacker Alvin “Bud” Dupree. It is the third consecutive year in which the team used their first overall selection on a linebacker, and the second in three years that that selection…


Reviewing The Pick: Bud Dupree

Like Mike Tomlin and Kevin Colbert admitted they felt, I am pleasantly surprised to see linebacker Bud Dupree fall to the Pittsburgh Steelers at 22. Truthfully, I thought it had no chance of happening. But that’s why you build your board. Dupree was always the player I wanted the team to…
