Found April 24, 2013 on Steelers Depot:
Former Texas A&M quarterback Jerrod Johnson, who was with the Pittsburgh Steelers throughout the preseason last year, was signed by Seattle Seahawks on Wednesday. Johnson appeared in three pre season games for the Steelers last year and was 14-of-21 passing for 236 yards with two touchdowns in very limited playing time. He was also sacked five times and ran for 36 yards on seven attempts. The Steelers chose to keep veteran Charlie Batch as their third quarterback over Johnson, who went on to play for the Sacramento Mountain Lions of the UFL after failing to be signed by another team following Read more [...]

2013 Steelers Mock Draft Version 5.0 – Final Edition

The 2013 NFL draft will get underway in New York City Thursday evening, so it is now time for my final Pittsburgh Steelers mock draft of the year. Mock drafts are never satisfying to me as the odds of getting all of the picks correct really doesn't exist. The process, however, is satisfying, as I get a chance to watch a lot of tape and read a ton of material on several of the...

Steelers Rookie LB Jarvis Jones Says He Needs To Work On Dropping Into Coverage The Most

As expected, people are already speculating how the Pittsburgh Steelers will use outside linebacker Jarvis Jones on defense during his rookie season. For those of you that think Jones will see the field much on defense baring an injury, shame on you, as it is well known that rookie linebackers in Pittsburgh not named Kendrell Bell generally only play on special teams. If they are...

5 Bold Predictions for the 2013 NFL Draft that Could Affect the Pittsburgh Steelers

The 2013 NFL Draft will officially begin tomorrow night. For many football fans this weekend is as good, if not better, than Christmas (or any other special holiday you celebrate). This weekend we will be officially introduced the newest members of the Steelers. These players could turn into starters, stars or hall of famers and the anticipation and hope that goes into this weekend...

Former-Pittsburgh Steelers OLB James Harrison Adamant that He Doesn’t Hate the Steelers

After James Harrison was cut by the Steelers the thought was that the Baltimore Ravens would be a good fit for him moving forward. Staying within the same division is good for players because they already know the other teams so going to the Ravens made sense. Harrison’s agent set up a meeting between Harrison and Baltimore, but before that date came the Ravens had signed Elvis...

Steelers GM Kevin Colbert Says Team Needs Quantity Of Draft Picks Due To Departures

Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert was a guest Tuesday morning on 105 The X Radio and clarified his reasoning as to why the organization is more open to trading down in the first round of the NFL draft than up. His answer was not surprising, but it no way signified that they are guaranteed to move down on Thursday. "The first thing that you got to do is to look...

Video: Steelers 2013 First Round Draft Pick Jarvis Jones Second Chance Story

I watched this video some time ago, but perhaps a few of you haven't. Hopefully by now you have read the bio of Georgia outside linebacker Jarvis Jones, who was selected with the 17th pick of the first round of the 2013 NFL draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers. After reading that, you can hear him tell more of his backstory in the sit down interview that he had with Gene Wojciechowski...

Pittsburgh Steelers 2013 Draft: Predicting the Steelers’ First-Round Board (Part I)

Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert said Monday, via Steel City Insider, that the Steelers probably won’t be trading up from the No. 17 pick in the first round of the 2013 NFL draft. Tell us something we don’t know. The real question is whether the Steelers will trade down in the first round. As Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette pointed out, there isn’t...

First Round NFL Draft Grades: Pittsburgh Steelers

PICK: Jarvis Jones, DE/OLB, GeorgiaANALYSIS: Jones has been mocked to the Steelers since the Superbowl or earlier. Pretty much everyone got this pick right. It's also a great pick for Pittsburgh, what a surprise. The Steelers never disappoint in round one. Jones will be a big playmaker for them and will be able to rack up the sack numbers with a strong defense to work with...

Offensive Line is an Unlikely Choice for the Pittsburgh Steelers in the First Round of the 2013 NFL Draft

One of the Pittsburgh Steelers biggest issues that past few years has been keeping a healthy offensive line. That doesn’t, however, mean that offensive line is one of the biggest needs for the Steelers heading into the 2013 NFL Draft. They have already put multiple early round picks into the offensive line and resigned Ramon Foster to play guard for the team moving forward. The...

The Terrible Podcast – Steelers 2013 Draft Day Talk Episode

Season 3, Episode 96 of The Terrible Podcast is up and co-host David Todd and I discuss quite a few things related to the first day of the 2013 NFL draft that gets underway this evening. We give our thoughts on the first round overall, as well as our thoughts on what the Pittsburgh Steelers may or may not do over the course of the draft. David and I go through the Steelers first...

Tunstall: My Favorite Draftees for the Steelers

By Clarence Tunstall Here’s my last ditch effort to lobby for my favorites for this weekend’s draft: At the top of the list is WR Marquise Goodwin. The fastest man in the draft, he opened up Texas’ offense when in the game and unlike talking heads suggest, tracks the ball very well as his game film demonstrates. He’s also a threat to take any play to the house and would make...

Seahawks success starts in the ‘middle’ rounds of the NFL Draft

Seahawks general manager John Schneider has put together a staff that doesn’t stop making good selections after the first round. The team has become increasingly adept at identifying talent in the mid rounds of the NFL Draft. Using the draft as the main component in building their team, Schneider and his staff are the best at finding top level talent after the bright light...

Seahawks Receive a Pre-Draft Bonus

This April, the Seahawks didn't have to wait until the official start of the draft to pick up a little something special.  And no, I'm not talking about trading for Percy Harvin, or signing Cliff Avril, or even re-signing Clint Gresham (it's easy to take having a reliable long snapper for granted until you don't have one -- remember 2008?).  No, the big acquisition...

Steelers looking for depth, not impact players

The Pittsburgh Steelers don't think they'll find an impact player with the 17th pick in this week's draft. That's fine by general manager Kevin Colbert, who believes it takes any player at least one season to figure out how to play for one of the NFL's marquee franchises. There are plenty of holes to fill in Pittsburgh, which lost a handful of starters to free...
