Steelers Enamored With Interceptions In DB Evaluations

L.T. Walton Drafted As A Sub-Package Fit

When the Pittsburgh Steelers’s natural sixth-round draft pick came on the clock, I don’t suspect that the name Leterrious “L.T.” Walton was on the tip of many people’s tongue. He’s not a player that I was previously familiar with, even if I had the sixth round pegged as an area…

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…

Steelers OLB Selections Suggest They Had A Profile In Mind

When the name Anthony Chickillo was first read during yesterday’s draft as the 212nd overall selection going to the Pittsburgh Steelers, there was a lack of clarity as to what exactly that was going to entail in the long run. Chickillo, a college defensive end at 6’3”, 267 lbs. out…
