Everyone of us has been an armchair quarterback at some point in our lives and now that has evolved into being an armchair general manager and I want to give you your shot at being a GM. Fortunately or unfortunately, you can only be one general manager and that is Kevin Colbert of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Depending upon your like or dislike of Colbert, you get to pull on one of his sweaters from the Bill Cowher collection and dive into the war room and make the pick for the Steelers in the 2013 NFL Draft. In your response to this post, tell us here at Steel City Blitz who you would take and give us a little reasoning as to why. In the days leading up to the draft I’ll tally up the selections and let you know what the readers have chosen. While I’d prefer you gave your selection in the comments section, feel free to tweet me your selection as well. Thanks for participating and you are now on the clock….

  • It is easy for me. I am a die hard Steeler fan and for this fan I would draft a running back. Why it is all so simple? The running attack this past year was horrible! Some people think that there is not one first round running back in this years draft class. If you take a through look at this years draft class there are a few diamonds but also some pretty nice rubys. My self I like Montee Ball over another first round player Eddie Lacy. Why? Montee is much more eluvsive than Eddie. Which I believe the Pittsburgh Steelers is looking more for. The two guys that are still on the roster are more short yardage guys in which both lack speed. The Steelers need a explosive back for Big Ben to really be Big Ben again. Note: Look at the last two superbowls to use as a reference. The last one the Steelers won was with who at running back? Hall of Fame canidiate Jerome Bettis. The one in which they lost, they're last Super Bowl appearrance. A guy by the name of Rashard Mendenhall was the running back. See a pattern here? Every down backs that are power runners and both explosive. It is imparative that they address this position immediately. Remember you hear it all the time. The passing game is set up by the running game. The Pittsburgh Steelers play action game was not there this past season as well. Also maybe that explains why Big Ben takes so many hits as well. I was taught the running game keeps the defense honest. To operate a offense correctly you need to be able to run in the game. No running attack leads to more sacks, interceptions, and fumbles. Why cause the defense can soley concentrate on the pass. This is all the reasons why I support picking a running back in the first round. Either Eddie Lacy or my favorite Montee Ball.
