    I think if BC were here I'd tend to agree with you more based on previous drafting experience, but with Tomlin here now things could change. We still have Colbert who's the director of operations but Tomlin will have some major influence as to who we pick and how we decide when to try and get them. I'd still not rather spend a 4th round pick on a punter because they are a dime a dozen in the draft and rookie FA's after the draft.

    I thought about taking a punter before we talked about this, higher in the draft but now Im not so sure.

    You still can get alot of good football players in the 4th round. Hopefully Colbert with Tomlin now as HC will stop wasting picks.

    I agree the Steelers 4th round picks have sucked lately. But this year I'm hoping they have a great draft and don't waste any picks. Look around the NFL some of the best punters in the NFL were not even drafted. Thats all I'm saying you can find a good punter without even drafting one.

    We're used to only having our top 3 draft picks make the team anymore the last few years that we don't know how to act with a new guy at the helm
