    Taking Tyler Bray, QB, in the 2nd round?

    This one has been gaining a bit of steam in the last several days from sites I've read. With Tomlin and Colbert seeking out Bray at his pro day and rumored to have already scheduled a private meeting in Pittsburgh, perhaps they would consider taking him in the 2nd? I've seen some say he's a second rounder, others a 3rd.

    If he's there, and it seems likely he would be if they want him then; also considering the other needs that the Steelers have, do you consider drafting Ben's eventual replacement now?

    id have no objection to him in the second at all, it might be tough to swallow depending who else is on the board at the time but theres a chance he might really be the BPA. First round talent, second round mechanics, third round head

    Terrible pick if they intend to keep Ben around. Receivers leaving, 2 average RBs under contract and Heath Miller is hurt.

    In the 2nd round? Bad pick.

    The only way it isn't for them is if Ben's leaving after 2013.

    Connect the dots.

    Ben due for a new contract.

    Yinzer Gradkowski signed for 3 years as a backup.

    And now tey are sniffing around 2nd round QBs.

    Not hard to figure out why.

    this team would have gone deeper into the playoffs the last 2 years if they had a valuable backup QB...this wouldnt be like drafitng dixon, this is drafting a guy that could have 3 routes

    Excellent backup

    Trade for a high pick to a QB needy team

    Ideally id like them to trade up from the third round back into the second and get bray...1, 2, 2, with the last 2 being bray

    I think we have greater needs as of now for the future. We just signed a solid backup QB for a few years if he stays. Im not saying dont draft a QB to backup Ben in 3 seasons. Just, this season we need more help on other positions on the field.

    If we drafted him in the 3rd or later. I wouldnt mind. No way in the 2nd round.

    I think this team has too many needs to be taking a "backup" anything in the second round. Also, I am not too confident that Ben would react well to the Steelers drafting his sucessor. They might need to put that off for a while.

    Re: Taking Tyler Bray, QB, in the 2nd round?

    I also agree we just signed bruce who is more then serviceable. So the QB we draft will most likely be 3rd string n there is just way too many other needs in other areas.

    Like WR RB OLB. Then you need to get guys for position that probably be open after nxt yr ILB S...

    I wouldnt be furious with this but i just think we have more pressing needs then to go QB in the 2nd

    I like Bray a lot... He's the only QB I would be happy drafting anywhere in round 2-4.

    The style that Ben plays IMO warrants a prospect for the future, doesn't mean he'll come in and unseat Ben but maybe a few years down the road...
