Frederick is an undersized corner who started for Texas A&M and played a variety of roles for them throughout his career. He is slow-footed, and this can be his defining attribute as he struggles off the line playing close in man coverage; he is Read more [...]

This draft just keeps getting better. The Steelers moved up in the fourth round to get a player they needed. The Steelers drafted Alameda Ta’amu NT from Washington. The Steelers gave up their 4th and 6th round pick to the Redskins to get Ta’amu.
Ta’amu is a huge man. He was expected to go in the second or third round in the draft. For the Steelers to go up and...
The Steelers selected Sean Spence in the third round of the 2012 NFL Draft. Spence was a guy who the Steelers worked out at his pro day. Spence is 5’11 and 230 lbs. The Steelers will most likely look at Spence as an inside linebacker in their system.
He is very athletic and will make tackles from sideline to sideline. He also is a very instinctive player. He can be a...
This is exactly why the Pittsburgh Steelers are perennial contenders. They sit back, let everyone else around them panic and then take the best available player who falls into their lap.
The Steelers probably didn’t anticipate addressing their interior offensive line in the 1st round, but when David DeCastro was on the board, they simply couldn’t pass him up. DeCastro will immediately...

Happy draft weekend. Let's quickly take a look at each Steeler draftee: what likely drew the Steelers to them, what they need to work on, what some concerns are and where we go from here.
What we know: DD was the most highly touted OG in the draft. In fact, he was regarded as a top 15 pick and an elite lineman who could step in and...
The Pittsburgh Steelers typically take a conservative approach to the draft, which has served them very well in years past. But they’re breaking the mold this year, and targeting players with a ton of upside who have fallen to due some off-field concerns.
The first gamble was with Ohio State offensive tackle Mike Adams, who failed multiple drug tests in college and failed another...
Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley met the media for a press conference to discuss the selection of Florida running back Chris Rainey in the 5th round of the 2012 NFL draft. Haley discussed the skill set that Rainey possesses as well as his ability to help in the return game on special teams.
Below is the audio from the press conference and the transcript will be...
Season 2, Episode 103 of The Terrible Podcast is up and David Todd and I get right after it talking about the newest Pittsburgh Steelers players drafted this weekend after a quick hat tip to the Yale undrafted free agent signed by the Steelers last night Jake Stoller. Why is that important? David is a Yale graduate and we have a little fun with that in itself.
After some quick...
The Pittsburgh Steelers selected Colorado wide receiver Toney Clemons in the 7th round with the 231st pick of the 2012 NFL draft.
Clemons was a reliable starter after transferring from Michigan. He is a huge and athletic receiver in the mold of Anquan Boldin. He has the same body type and strong base, and can go across the middle, using his core strength to break arm...
The Pittsburgh Steelers have made great moves in upgrading their roster in the 2012 NFL draft. First, the Steelers took David DeCastro with the 24th pick, to help out the offensive line and shore up the middle. DeCastro started all 39 games of his career at Stanford. I think he will come in right away and make the starting lineup.
Next the Steelers picked Mike Adams at...
This draft was arguably the most important one for the Steelers in the last 10 years. With so many veterans either already gone or likely to be in the next two years or so, replenishing the roster with quality starters and solid depth was paramount this year. Equally important is the 2nd year players, draftees from last year, who will need to step up and take on a bigger role. For...
The Steelers added a cornerback with their third pick of the 7th round. The Steelers selected Terrence Frederick out of Texas A&M. Frederick is a smaller guy with good speed who can contribute on special teams.
Frederick is a zone corner. He is a good tackler. He knows how to read a QB and break on the ball. He could fit well in the Steelers defense. This is a project...
The Steelers took a chance in the second round by drafting OT Mike Adams, who failed a drug test at the combine. Read the up-and-down story of Adams and the Steelers inside.
