    I am going to admit that I was dissapointed when we took him, because I don't follow Big 10 football. But I trust ya'lls analysis and as I am sitting in a parking lot eating my lunch reading this post, Renegade just came on the radio! It is fate, he is going to be a stud!

    This is not only good quality at #31, it is a good fit for the Steelers defense. Hood and Heyward should anchor the ends for several years.

    As a Michigan Wolverine fan, I can tell you I got tired of seeing Heyward stonewall the Wolverine D-Line for four years in a row. I am now a Heyward fan, because he is now a Steeler.

    Well done Steelers, and well done K Train.

    I was actually getting nervous when the Giants took PA as NE was rumoured to be interested in Heyward with their second pick and I thought he and Williams could both be gone and we would have chioces like Jimmy Smith (I am glad the rats took him) or Clayborn. 31 is like being stuck between the dog and the fire hydrant, but this pick sets up second round where we can wait and take best DB there w/o giving away too many late round picks to movw up unless we see another slide. I am fine with trading up but I think we can get help late in this draft if the players fall the right way. I could see Pettis or Henery and I know you guys have all mentioned options that you want to see late as well.

    K, if Butler is as good as you think he is, our secondary might be on track, but I think we have to go DB in round 2.

    K Train I love your Threads/Post as always. All of us may have different opinions but we all know when we took The Best Future Steeler Available. No Question as the board played out it was a 5 tech with Mike Tomlins favorite word "BLOODLINES" AS THE PICK.

    From what I read the Steelers were hoping that Heyward would drop to them all along, and that possibly they were willing to trade up if they felt someone was going to take him. The DL has been ignored for a long time up until Hood came in 2009, so this group was/is due for an infusion of youth for the future. We are fortunate that all 3 starters now, when healthy, are still as good as it gets in the league. It's rare to see 3 guys over 30 playing so well together, especially with the limited rotation they had available last year. When Smith went down again last year it was the best thing that could have happened to Ziggy Hood. He got a boatload of experience and we can feel confident in his ability now.

    I'm hoping Heyward makes an immediate impact but I suspect he'll mainly be a rotation player this year unless injuries happen, like K train mentioned.

    Nick Eason is on the hot seat right now.
