Stanford Giant Peat Could Be Possibility At 22

Although the Pittsburgh Steelers fans in attendance at Chicago’s Auditorium Theatre may likely want to hurl tomatoes at Commissioner Roger Goodell, it’s very possible the Steelers #1 draft pick may be spent on an offensive tackle. As always, Kevin Colbert states he’ll stick to his guns and commit to a…

Texas DT Brown Could Be “Hampton 2.0″ For Steelers

If we know anything about Kevin Colbert’s draft tendencies, it’s that the braintrust of the Pittsburgh Steelers values leadership, maturity and, at the same time, youth. Or, as they like to call it, third-year juniors. Enter the University of Texas defensive tackle Malcom Brown, the 6-foot-2, 319-pound force of nature…

Goldman Could Be The Black And Gold’s Man In The First Round

If you were to ask 10 different Pittsburgh Steelers fans to name the position they believe the team will draft in the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft, 12 of them would probably tell you it will either be outside linebacker or cornerback. While those two positions are obvious…

Clifton Geathers Offers Necessary Depth Along Defensive Line

The Pittsburgh Steelers yesterday agreed to terms with another one of their free agents, this time with defensive lineman Clifton Geathers. Given that the team only signed him with four games left in the regular season as an injury replacement—and the fact that he was available to sign at that…

Steelers Have Wednesday Meeting Planned With Miami TE Clive Walford

As expected, the Pittsburgh Steelers do have more than just passing interest in Miami tight end Clive Walford ahead of the 2015 NFL Draft. At his Wednesday Pro Day, Walford, who didn’t run the 40 because of a recently pulled hamstring, said he’s meeting with the Steelers brass later in…

Daniel McCullers Has Chance To Expand Role In 2015

Over the course of the past few days, I felt that I was due to write something about Daniel McCullers, the Pittsburgh Steelers’ sixth-round compensatory draft selection in the 2014 NFL Draft. McCullers is a man large enough to garner the nickname “Shade Tree”, and was aptly described as “an…

AFC North News Watch: Day 22

Yesterday, much of the focus around the league was centered in Florida, because Florida State was holding its Pro Day. FSU has one of the most talented, NFL-caliber rosters in college football, so it’s no surprise that there were reportedly representatives from every single team in the league attending the…

AFC North News Watch: Day 19

The AFC North has been fairly quiet since the league’s annual Owners Meetings drew to a close during the middle of last week, although the Pittsburgh Steelers were among the few teams to actually make a move or two after they re-signed one of their own free agents. The movement…

The Ramifications Of A Trade Up For Pittsburgh

With a new 5-year window for franchise quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, and the stage set for the offense to take it’s place as the NFL’s best, the elephant in the room as far as the Pittsburgh Steelers are concerned is the status of their defense. It’s a defense that’s been undergoing…

If Edge Rusher Gregory Slips, Will Pittsburgh Roll The Dice?

With the recent news of Nebraska defensive end Randy Gregory’s failed drug test for marijuana at the NFL Combine, it’s fair to ponder if the once top-10 pick will suffer a draft day freefall, perhaps into the range of the Pittsburgh Steelers. With the draft only a month away, a…

Steelers Throw Down Gauntlet For Jarvis Jones To Decide Fate

With the manner in which the Pittsburgh Steelers have handled their outside linebacker position during this offseason, they have, whether unintentionally or otherwise, turned the 2015 season into a pivotal one in terms of the future of Jarvis Jones, their former first-round draft pick from 2013. The Steelers had early…

2015 Season Looms Large For OLB Jarvis Jones

Back in the 2013 NFL Draft, Georgia linebacker Jarvis Jones was pegged as a can’t-miss defender, leading the nation in sacks with 14.5 in 2012. His less than spectacular pro day, where he ran a 4.9 in the 40, caused his first round freefall into the laps of the Pittsburgh…
