Pittsburgh Steelers 5 Biggest Draft Mistakes Over the Last 5 Years

Mike Adams View image | Adams is still with the team, but he’s atrocious.  I lose a lot of hope in the offensive line when Adams is inserted due to injury.  He’s a nightmare to watch when he pass blocks, as you can almost guarantee any decent pass rusher who lines up on Adams’ side will probably fare well against him.

2014 NFL Draft: Pittsburgh Steelers Must Do a Better Job Drafting Cornerbacks

The Pittsburgh Steelers aren’t the only team that passed on Richard Sherman in the 2011 NFL Draft. However, that’s not the only mistake they’ve made when it comes to drafting cornerbacks since Mike Tomlin became head coach in 2007. As Sherman would say, their cornerback crop during that time has been “mediocre.” It’s been a factor in the erosion of a defense that allowed...

Compensatory Picks Give Steelers Flexibility in Draft

Prior to the announcement of the three compensation picks the Steelers were awarded on Monday, I was a little worried that Steeler Nation (myself included) were assuming an extra 3rd rounder was a lock. I’m happy to say I was wrong, and that the Steelers picked up a 6th on top of the 3rd and 5th that I predicted in a write up last week. That gives the Steelers 9 picks total in...

Miami Dolphins unrestricted free agent cornerback Chris Owens reportedly visited with the Pittsburgh Steelers this past week, but he is no longer on the market now as he signed with the Kansas City Chiefs on Friday.

Steelers Have The Cap Moves To Be Players In Free Agency, But That Doesn’t Mean They Will Make Them

With about a half-dozen moves so far this offseason, the Pittsburgh Steelers have chipped away about $20 million, give or take, from their salary cap in the 2014, leaving them with about $3 million in cap space as of this writing. In the red. By offering cap-friendly two-year extensions to Heath Miller and Troy Polamalu, that was cut just about in half. The releases of Larry Foote...

In today’s pass-happy NFL, it’s imperative to find and develop players, on both offense and defense, who will be able to help your team excel in that area.
