The Pittsburgh Steelers addressed their need at tight end with David Paulson in the 7th round of the 2012 NFL draft. Many of you remember the big deal I made out of Coby Fleener, but even before that I did some in-depth analysis of the tight ends in the 2012 class. Paulson is definitely not Fleener, but he might be a better value considering the low price paid for him. First, I want to break down some of his collegiate stats.
Paulson was a red shirted senior at Oregon but only played the past 3 years. He was slowly incorporated into the Duck offense in 2009 where the Read more [...]

When you look at the NFL scouting combine and pro day measurables of the Pittsburgh Steelers third round draft pick Sean Spence, you might not be overly impressed. His 5 foot, 11 inch height combined with his 231 pound weight certainly has you envisioning a pretty smallish linebacker. Even Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review commented on first seeing Spence up close that...
I had a feeling that a few corresponding roster moves might be on the way soon as the Pittsburgh Steelers roster was over 90 players after the undrafted free agents had been identified. That indeed was the case on Wednesday as Mark Kaboly reports via Twitter that running back Chad Spann and cornerback Antonio Smith have now been released.
Spann was signed to the Steelers practice...
A rundown of the Steelers' draft picks. It has been a few days since the Draft and I have had to do some reserch on some of the Steelers' lower draft picks.
1st Round Pick 24
OG David DeCastro, Stanford A+
This player was a great pick up. The Steelers commented after the Draft that he was one of the players they would trade up for and didn't have to. With a...
The most controversial pick of the Pittsburgh Steelers on draft day since Santonio Holmes in 2006, is this years 2nd rounder Mike Adams out of Ohio State. The Steelers just simply don’t take these types of players normally, they want high character guys who are football players above all else.
You could be the guaranteed best college athlete on the planet but if you don’t make...

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown flourished during his second NFL season, forming a dangerous combo with speedster Mike Wallace. In 2011 Brown was named to his first Pro Bowl and hauled in 69 passes for 1,108 yards with 2 touchdowns. He was also equally as dangerous as kick/punt returner, becoming the first player in [...]
Since the Pittsburgh Steelers drafted Florida running back Chris Rainey in the fifth round of the 2012 NFL draft, one really can't help but to think that new offensive coordinator Todd Haley plans to use him the same way that he used Dexter McCluster when he was the head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs. It got me wondering just how much Haley used his running backs in the passing...

Heading into the 2012 NFL draft it looked as if the Pittsburgh Steelers might have interest in drafting not only an inside linebacker, but an outside linebacker as well. Of their 30 allowed pre draft visitors, 4 were considered 3-4 outside linebacker prospects in the form of Nick Perry, Andre Branch, Cam Johnson and Olivier Vernon. There were also reports that the Steelers had some...
The Steelers were touted by USA Today as having the best overall draft following this weekends 2012 NFL Draft. However, draft grades don’t always equal the production on the field. As every fan knows there are surprises and busts throughout the NFL Draft and the only way to weed out the good f Continue
The Steelers answered a lot of questions by the time the NFL was over this past weekend. They filled serious holes on the offensive line, got some depth at linebacker and running back, and also found themselves the next Casey Hampton.
That’s some big shoes to fill no matter who you are, and not a responsibility to be taken lightly. Hampton started 148 of the 157 games he’s played...
Steve McNair, Fred Taylor, Derrick Mason, and Carl Pickens, among others, spent their careers killing the Steelers. Some player seem to come up big against certain teams and these guys dominated the Steelers almost every chance they got. Over the past few years Baltimore Ravens outside lineback Continue
