Steelers on offensive in National Football League draft, which Ben Roethlisberger will love

Say Watt? Steelers take T.J. Watt in first round of NFL Draft

Say Watt? Steelers take T.J. Watt in first round of NFL Draft

Okay isn't bad. Bad is bad, and the Steelers class would be good to not be bad.

T.J. Watt: the first overall pick for the SteelersT.J.

For a team whose defensive shortcomings were exploited by the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship game, the Pittsburgh Steelers took a bit of a "we'll just outscore them" mentality instead during the NFL Draft. At cornerback, a position the Steelers has invested heavy draft resources as of the previous years, still remains a need as the club hardly tries to spot and acquire a third starter to put on the field alongside Artie Burns and Ross Cockrell. "Most of the time, we forget about intangibles when we draft, then later on a guy comes in and does better than anybody expected him to do".

The Steelers have really enjoyed making this sort of pick in the last few years.

Though J.J. Watt is one of the league's biggest stars - and a three-time defensive player of the year - the Steelers stressed T.J.'s family ties to the league weren't a factor.

The Texans' All-Pro defensive end said he texted Brown - they were teammates at Central Michigan before Watt transferred to Wisconsin - and offered some ideas.

Smith-Schuster is another wide receiver added to a roster stacked with wide receivers.

Even after raising his stock by dominating the NFL Combine in March, many experts believed placing the outside linebacker in the top 32 was still quite a stretch for a player with a history of knee injuries. The situation with Martavis Bryant necessitated some attention to the receiving core and the team was rumored to be looking for a potential long-term replacement for Ben Roethlisberger. This wasn't a public relations move or an act of charity for a young man who has become an inspiration. "We've got work to do". It's time for good. The black and gold addressed the need with the 30th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft Thursday night.

Whar a great day for football fans in Pittsburgh and more importantly a great day for Conner and his family.

Four of 12 TDs scored in the Super Bowl?

"It's a dream come true", Conner said from a Buffalo Wild Wings in his hometown of Erie, Pennsylvania. At one point, he quit football to learn how to be a welder. The selection of Sutton is just another step in that direction. Watt isn't going to win with speed very often but he uses his hands well, never takes a play off and he's incredibly athletic for his size. As for longsnapper Colin Holba? "My first exposure to him was the LSU game at Lambeau (Field) earlier past year in September, and just to watch him with some of the things he was asked to do in that game". Congratulations to the Steelers.
