Steelers Draft Bud Dupree, Not a Cornerback

With the 22nd pick in the 2015 draft, the Pittsburgh Steelers selected outside linebacker Alvin “Bud” Dupree out of Kentucky. That’s fine. The Steelers are hurting for a pass rush just as much as for defensive backs, and improving one of those groups can indirectly improve the other. All the experts are saying the Steelers got incredible value in Dupree at 22, while taking...

Steelers must address cornerback on Day 2 of NFL draft

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports The Pittsburgh Steelers selected outside linebacker Bud Dupree with their first pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, and will now need to set their sights on selecting a cornerback, maybe even two of them, on Friday.

Dupree Adds Much-Needed Versatility for the Steelers

With cornerbacks Kevin Johnson and Marcus Peters already off the board, the Pittsburgh Steelers selected outside linebacker Alvin “Bud” Dupree with the 22nd pick in the first round of tonight’s 2015 NFL Draft. I like the selection simply because there is so much depth at the other position the Steelers desperately need to upgrade, cornerback, and now they can focus on that...

Steelers take linebacker Bud Dupree with 22nd pick

PITTSBURGH (AP) The Pittsburgh Steelers beefed up their pass rush on Thursday night, taking Kentucky linebacker Bud Dupree with the 22nd pick in the NFL draft.

Steel City Blitz Steelers Mock 4.0

1. Kevin Johnson, CB, Wake Forest I’m moving away from OLB here in the first. I’d still prefer to go that direction, and the team would probably like to if the value’s there, but my hunch is that the best player available will be a cornerback. I’m to the point I’m hoping they take a risk and go with Marcus Peters. I’m starting to think there’s a chance of that, because...

Steelers Could Keep Jarvis Jones Engaged Outside Of Starting Lineup

The Pittsburgh Steelers are entering their third season with former first-round outside linebacker Jarvis Jones on the roster, and they have yet to determine whether or not he is a starting-caliber player. There have been mitigating circumstances, of course. Last season, Jones recorded two sacks during the first three games before suffering a wrist injury […] Steelers Could Keep...

Steelers Moats Flying Under Radar, Could Post Double-Digit Sacks In 2015

With the upcoming draft ripe with pass rushers, it’s very likely that the Pittsburgh Steelers will find the future of their bread and butter at the position, possibly as early as round one. But for the present, they have their starters in either Jarvis Jones, James Harrison, or Arthur Moats, the latter of which seems […] Steelers Moats Flying Under Radar, Could Post Double-Digit...

Steelers Throw Down Gauntlet For Jarvis Jones To Decide Fate

2015 Season Looms Large For OLB Jarvis Jones

Back in the 2013 NFL Draft, Georgia linebacker Jarvis Jones was pegged as a can’t-miss defender, leading the nation in sacks with 14.5 in 2012. His less than spectacular pro day, where he ran a 4.9 in the 40, caused his first round freefall into the laps of the Pittsburgh Steelers, who gladly picked him […] 2015 Season Looms Large For OLB Jarvis Jones is a post from: The post...

Is outside linebacker Jarvis Jones, the player the Pittsburgh Steelers drafted in the first round out of Georgia in the 2013 NFL Draft, already a bust after two seasons? There are fans who certainly think so and already started to fit him with that unflattering label as early as last season when he missed several games after having wrist surgery following an injury in Week 3… ...
