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…

Steelers Will Go Into Draft With Open Mind

The Pittsburgh Steelers lost a boat load of veteran leadership and experience from the defensive side of the ball since last season, namely Jason Worilds, Brett Keisel, Ike Taylor and Troy Polamalu. Those are four starters gone, and on paper seems to be a lot to replace at the snap of a finger, something general…

Kozora: Prospects the Steelers Love (I Think)

Based on the Pittsburgh Steelers’ known interest, the prospect’s makeup, and a little bit of gut feelings, here is a list of players the team loves. I think. Eric Rowe/CB Utah: Rowe passes the eye test with the height and weight teams crave standing in at 6’0/6 and 205. He…

Division’s Biggest Defensive Questions Lie In Pittsburgh

When it comes to divisional matchups, particularly when speaking about stability, I think it’s reasonable to say that the Pittsburgh Steelers have the steepest dichotomy between offense and defense. I wouldn’t imagine many would argue against the notion that the Steelers have the highest quality and surest offensive unit in…

Steelers Have Work To Do In Improving Run Defense

Over the course of the past four seasons, ever since their most recent appearance in the Super Bowl, the Pittsburgh Steelers’ defense has been on the decline, though it hasn’t always been represented in the base statistics.

Steelers Have Questions That Need Answering For Their OLBs

Comparing this year to last year, the Pittsburgh Steelers aren’t so far off in 2015 in terms of their pass rushing ability compared to where they were in 2014 heading into the draft. And they didn’t take advantage of the draft to add to their pass rushing ability, either. They…

Just a day after contemplating his future on social media, James Harrison agreed yesterday to terms on a two-year, $2.75 million contract to remain with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
