Some Final Thoughts Before The 2015 NFL Draft

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…

Tomlin Says There’s Less Projections, Conversions Nowadays With OLBs

Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert said Monday during his pre-draft press conference that this year’s group of 3-4 outside linebacker prospects is probably the best he’s seen in 10 or 15 years. That’s certainly great news if your Steelers fan as the team could certainly use two of them this…

Tomlin Says Bell’s Suspension Has No Bearing On Upcoming Draft

Being as Pittsburgh Steelers starting running back Le’Veon Bell is currently slated to serve a three-game suspension at the start of the 2015 season, head coach Mike Tomlin was asked Monday during his pre-draft press conference if that might have any bearing on how the team approaches the upcoming 2015…

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…

Right in the midst of a rebuild, the run defense of the current Pittsburgh Steelers made significant strides down the home stretch of the 2014 season. Seemingly, this coincided with the entrance of rookie defensive end, Stephon Tuitt, into the starting lineup, and the future looks bright for him. Behemoth rookie…

Gregory Likely To Be Available At 22, If 2014 Draft Is Indication

There were more failed drug tests at the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine than any in recent memory, and one of the headliners of that group was Florida State defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan. Viewed by many as an early-to-mid round first round pick, Jernigan suffered a precipitous slide, all the way…

Pre-Draft Visits Often Lead To Draft-Day Selections For Steelers

Each and every year, teams are allowed to host 30 pre-draft visits form players that aren’t considered a “local.” For instance, in this year’s draft crop, Pitt tackle T.J. Clemmings won’t count against the Pittsburgh Steelers because he can probably walk from the Pitt campus to the team facility. However, I’ve went…

Steelers Could Keep Jarvis Jones Engaged Outside Of Starting Lineup

The Pittsburgh Steelers are entering their third season with former first-round outside linebacker Jarvis Jones on the roster, and they have yet to determine whether or not he is a starting-caliber player. There have been mitigating circumstances, of course. Last season, Jones recorded two sacks during the first three games…
