    Drafting a kicker?

    Kicker
    1. Blair Walsh – 5’10” 192 Georgia
    2. Philip Welch – 6’2” 205 Wisconsin
    3. Randy Bullock – 5’9” 212 Texas A&M
    4. Carson Wiggs – 6’0” 192 Purdue
    5. David Teggart – 6’0” 203 Connecticut

    Any chance you guys think the Steelers use a late round pick on a kicker to replace Suisham?

    For sure.....Tomlin and Colbert did spend a 4th round pick on a punter so I wouldn't be shocked if they took a kicker in rounds 4-7......I wouldn't be against it either.....Suisham is a bum and needs to go.......

    At those later rounds you kind of start just hoping the picks will pan out anyway. Kickers are usually pretty easy to pick, so it would make sense. Besides, Steelers don't really need more back-up players. We have excellent back-ups at most positions. We need 4-5 solid starters at some key positions to be back in prime position.
    However much you think you know about football, rest assured that Skip Bayless knows more!

    But history shows you can find a damn good kicker without drafting one...I wouldn't mind a kicker being drafted but only if its one of the top two........

    Indeed, although it is kind of risky if you take into account that we could very well end up with a guy like Suisham again. At least we assure a decent kicker through the draft if we elect to go that way.

    We have 6 picks starting in the 4th round thru the three 7th round picks, so I'd hope we pick up the kid from A&M or Georgia!!!

    Yup. Which is exactly why I believe we will pick a kicker somewhere in there. The nice thing about those kickers Matt listed is that they all played on grass with the exception of Welch from WIS. I believe they have field turf.

    Fine
    With the extra picks in the 7th I can see them drafting a punter & kicker.
