AFC North Draft History Study: Defensive Backs

On the heels of the conclusion of the 2015 NFL Draft, I began to realize the need to enhance my understanding of each team’s draft history; what they’ve built or attempted to build over the past ten years and how they’ve went about that process. This may seem tedious to…

Steelers 2015 NFL Draft Re-Do

Looking back at the 2015 NFL Draft haul, the team received high praise from sportscasters and NFL media outlets alike. They addressed major needs while staying true the course of their draft philosophy which is best player available. Although some will say they reached for cornerback Senquez Golson in round 2, if…

Steelers Would Make Ideal Trade Partner For RB-Needy Teams

The Pittsburgh Steelers are in a great spot in the upcoming draft when it pertains to possibly trading down. The teams directly behind them all could be in the market for one of the top running backs in the draft, be it Wisconsin’s Melvin Gordon or Georgia’s Todd Gurley. Detroit, Arizona, Baltimore and…

Steelers’ Pick Between OLB And CB Could Come Down To Class Depth

As the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft approaches, it seems to be becoming increasingly more difficult to find anybody who thinks that the Pittsburgh Steelers should draft anybody who plays a position other than cornerback or outside linebacker, with the rare exception of the out of the loop…

Steelers 2015 Draft: Top 80 Big Board 7.0

Since the posting of the last Big Board, the Pittsburgh Steelers have re-signed outside linebacker James Harrison. The signing of Harrison was incredibly necessary as the Steelers were counting on returning Arthur Moats and the underwhelming Jarvis Jones to start with little depth behind them besides 2014 undrafted free agent…

Steelers 2015 Draft: Top 70 Big Board 6.0

Well it’s been around two weeks since I posted the last Big Board. The first wave of free agency has come and gone and holy cow what a wave! The Philadelphia Eagles, St. Louis Rams, Detroit Lions, Baltimore Ravens and many more teams were wheeling and dealing during the legal…

Steelers 2015 Draft: Top 60 Big Board 5.0

The 2015 NFL Scouting Combine was quite the spectacle as some players impressed (ahem, Vic Beasley) but it’s important not to get too carried away with the numbers and try and remember what you see on tape. Functional strength is often far different than what a guy can bench. In…

Steelers 2015 Draft: Top 50 Big Board 4.0

This will be the final Pittsburgh Steelers draft big board before the NFL Combine that starts February 17th. You’re unlikely to see anyone “shoot up the boards” due to their combine numbers but the workouts could go a long way in confirming some thoughts or doubts on players. In order…

Steelers 2015 Draft: Top 40 Big Board 3.0

The Big Board drives on as we get further into the offseason! In order to hopefully spur on more discussion and keep things dynamic I’ve again included 10 more players. I’ve added some running backs. You can kill me for this but I don’t see Todd Gurley or Melvin Gordon…

Steelers 2015 Draft: Top 30 Big Board 2.0

Last week’s first Steelers Depot Big Board of the 2015 NFL Draft was met with largely positive results. There was a lot of good discussion and some people felt there weren’t enough of some positions and certain players should’ve been on the board. In order to hopefully spur on more…

Steelers 2015 Draft: Top 20 Big Board

With the Pittsburgh Steelers losing in the first round of the playoffs to their hated rivals the Baltimore Ravens, Pittsburgh fans now have only the offseason to look forward to.
