PFF Actually Likes Three Steelers Draft Picks, UDFAs

Pro Football Focus doesn’t always have the greatest reputation among football enthusiasts, for reasons that are certainly not always unjustified.

Steelers Rookie S Gerod Holliman Not Bothered By Criticism

Had Pittsburgh Steelers rookie safety Gerod Holliman showed last season that he could be a reliable tackler against the run, he might very well have heard his name called last weekend prior to the seventh-round of the 2015 NFL Draft. Even though the Louisville product did lead the nation last…

UDFA Dismukes Could Be Sneaky Pick-Up, Good Fit For Steelers Zone Scheme

Revamped Steelers Defensive Line Has Potential To Rival Smith, Hampton, Keisel

For a long time after the new millennium in 2000, the defensive line of the Pittsburgh Steelers was widely considered the barometer by which opposing defensive lines were measured. The foundation, or bedrock, in the middle, was none other than Casey Hampton, aptly nicknamed “Big Snack”, who’s listed weight of 325 pounds…

Top Bench Presser Whimpey An Intriguing UDFA For Steelers

For those in attendance at the Utah State Pro Day, they were witnesses to what a chip on the shoulder of a man who goes 6-foot-5 and 295 pounds can do. Kevin Whimpey, the Aggies’ offensive lineman who was a three-year starter, had one goal going in, and that was shattering the…

Speed, Explosiveness Again A Theme In 2015 Draft For Steelers

Gerod Holliman Admits Favoring Injured Left Shoulder

At the risk of beating the drum one stroke too often and tearing the canvas, there is another piece to fit in place to the puzzle that is Gerod Holliman, the Louisville free safety and Jim Thorpe Award winner that the Pittsburgh Steelers selected with the 239th overall pick in…
