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...
When it comes down to the NFL Draft, fifty percent is evaluation and the other fifty is plain luck.

The Pittsburgh Steelers don't think they'll find an impact player with the 17th pick in this week's draft.
