Season 3, Episode 98 of The Terrible Podcast is up and co-host David Todd and I recap the 2013 draft of the Pittsburgh Steelers in this episode as we go pick by pick and discuss every player selected. In addition to talking about the new rookies, we also talk about the fallout from the draft and that includes talk about Jonathan Dwyer, Isaac Redman and Plaxico Burress in addition. One of those two running backs might not make the 53 man roster now and the same goes for Burress. We also look at a few players at the cornerback position that will be battling for a roster spot.

BEST OF MAXIM
There is no question the Pittsburgh Steelers needed to accomplish something whether through the late rounds of the NFL Draft or in signing undrafted free agent players. That ‘something’ was to find a younger back-up quarterback for Ben Roethlisberger as Byron Leftwich is out of the picture and with Charlie Batch being somewhere near the age of gaining his AARP card.
The Pittsburgh Steelers completed their 2013 NFL Draft with nine selections as well as agreeing to terms with 15 other rookie free agents following the draft. The 24 rookies added to the roster will participate in the team’s rookie minicamp next weekend, Friday through Sunday, May 3-5.

Running back Eddie Lacy wasn't drafted until late in the second round, which was lower than expected. Did a toe problem contribute to that?
The 2013 NFL draft is now behind us and the nine Pittsburgh Steelers draft picks will be present for rookie camp this coming weekend in Pittsburgh. Now that things have settled down, here is my look at what I expect this upcoming season for every member of the Steelers 2013 draft class.
Round 1 - OLB Jarvis Jones - At the very least, Jones should dress for every game and have...
Former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Charlie Batch told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that’s it’s possible that the Steelers drafted Landry Jones to take over for Ben Roethliserger at some point.
“Maybe they weren’t happy with what they had behind Ben and Bruce. That could be. But ultimately, I think this isn’t about replacing me. Big picture, maybe they’re thinking,...
Before I get into my thoughts on the 2013 draft, I want to review the players that were signed this offseason. Looking at the completed picture, I can see how the moves in free agency directly led to what positions were addressed in the draft. I am actually very impressed with the job that the Pittsburgh Steelers did in free agency for a normally dormant free...
The Pittsburgh Steelers will not just give pass-rushing outside linebacker Jarvis Jones, the Steelers 17th overall pick, the starting job, he will have to battle for it. Head coach Mike Tomlin and linebackers coach Kevin Butler both said Jones,
It is hard to read very much into the latest offensive depth chart on the official website of the Pittsburgh Steelers, but we will dissect it nonetheless.
For starters, Mike Adams is listed as the top right tackle as well as the backup at left tackle behind an empty spot. Head coach Mike Tomlin addressed the tackle spot during his pre draft press conference and would not commit...
Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that rookie linebacker Jarvis Jones won’t automatically start right away. Veteran Jason Worilds will compete with him.
“I think it’s a daunting task for rookies to start in any system and play and perform well,” said Tomlin. “Obviously it is difficult when you have established veteran players...
Steelers LBs coach Keith Butler mentioned that it would be “miraculous” if last year’s third-round pick Sean Spence was able to continue his career in the NFL, via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Spence, 22, suffered a terrible knee injury last season. He torn both his ACL and LCL while dislocating the knee, so there are some legitimate questions as to whether or not he’ll...
The Pittsburgh Steelers signed veteran punter Brian Mooreman today. He played for the Cowboys in 2012 after being released by the Bills. Mooreman spent his first 11 years in the NFL with the Bills. He’s a very good punter that’s averaged 44 yards per punt during his 12-year career. Need NFL Tickets?
Daniel Jeremiah of the NFL Network is reporting Saturday morning on Twitter that the Pittsburgh Steelers are trying to trade running back Jonathan Dwyer.
Dwyer, the Steelers sixth-round draft pick in 2010, is considered to be the more marketable running back on the roster currently, but is also only under contract for 2013 after signing a one-year restricted tender in the amount...
The NBA became the first of the four major American team sports to have an openly gay player on Monday with Jason Collins’ decision to come out. Now, the question on the minds of many people is whether or not any of the other three sports will follow. Will Collins’ announcement inspire others to come forward and in hopes of gaining acceptance for who they are?
