Sammie Coates Brings Needed Depth To Crucial WR Position

While the Pittsburgh Steelers knew going in that their draft board would, by the end of the weekend skew heavily to the defense, and general manager Kevin Colbert acknowledged that they had the sense that it might work out to the 6-to-2 ratio that ended up being the case, the…

Doran Grant’s Potential Flexibility Reminiscent Of William Gay

As general manager Kevin Colbert revealed following the draft, the Pittsburgh Steelers planned on coming out of the weekend with two new cornerbacks on the roster, and they accomplished that after selecting Doran Grant in the fourth round after previously adding Senquez Golson in the second round, whom they targeted…

Steelers Enamored With Interceptions In DB Evaluations

Last season, the Pittsburgh Steelers had just 11 interceptions, with two of them coming from Brice McCain in the regular season finale, meaning heading into the game that would decide whether or not they win the division, the team had a single-digit number in the interceptions column.

Steelers Draft Looks Very Good On Paper

Overall, the 2015 draft haul for the Pittsburgh Steelers looks very good on paper. The secondary was an obvious area of need for the team going in, and turnovers were lacking so what did they do? They added a cornerback in Senquez Golson that snared 10 picks last year, best…

Steelers Comfortable Not Adding Any Running Backs During 2015 NFL Draft

The Pittsburgh Steelers recognized that they had a lot of holes to fill this year during the 2015 NFL Draft, but they obviously didn’t feel like the running back position was one of them even though starter Le’Veon Bell is currently scheduled to miss the first three games of the…
