    What was he our #32 pick and you want to trade down????? We need the best starting offense weapon at #17

    Yep and didn't this happen last year with DeCastro and he won the right to start after excelling in camp? Just unfortunate with the knee injury, but I think they have to hear that to understand that you need to be there and learn the system. Excel in camp and you can win the starting spot. Just my .02.

It is a major FAIL when they only get 1 good season out of a player before they are free agents. It is what happened to Lewis this year as well. They should consider that every much as a failure as drafting poorly to begin with. Getting just 1 good season out of a player before losing them is idiotic. At least with Wallace we got some production his first few years, before he pouted and quit trying last season. The fact that Colbert ALREADY came out and said he doesn't see any draft picks who will contribute this year is maddening.
    I made a post in the past about them giving up Lewis and you defend the org. Now you are siding with me ? Make up your mind dude and the Steelers are about the draft but it makes no sense when a player finally comes productive and they don't keep him. Now you see my point!!!!!!!!!!!

    Colbert of all people should know how a rookie can come in and make a difference. Does he remember 2004 when Ben was a rookie and we went 15-1? With this mentality, the Redskins would have went with Rex Grossman last year while they "groomed" RG3. The Seahawks would have went with Matt Flynn over Russell Wison and the 49ers would have stayed with Alex Smith. If Colbert ran the Colts maybe he would have stuck with Curtis Painter while Luck "learned the system".

    This is my issue with the Steelers and we know they don't like to get there feet wet in free agency. That's fine and they build there team on the draft. It makes no sense whatsoever and who they draft lately. Cause they don't keep the ones that turn out to be productive players. Sadly they let them go to another team that gives them a reasonable salary that they could match. Lately they been trying to plug the holes with the likes of William Gay and Matt Spaeth!

    Enjoy the draft this week but if this organization don't get it's head out of its *** it doesn't matter! They are just going to groom a superstar for another team to enjoy. There are like the fluffers in the porn industry!

    Rookies have come in and made immediate impacts regardless of whether they are starting or not. LaMarr Woodley, Mike Wallace, Emmanuel Sanders was the 3rd reciever his rookie year and made some plays, Antonio Brown, Chris Rainey to a degree (primary return guy, played some offense but not nearly enough IMO). And that's not counting all the rookie starters on the O line. If we draft someone like Patterson/Jarvis Jones/Eifert/either guard/Hunter/Elam/Te'o, etc they'll make an immediate impact, starting or not.

    Worst thing we can do in this draft is draft Paterson!! He is raw and will take a year or two till he comes to be a great player. We will let him go then cause we don't want to pay his price!

    Raw just doesnt mean useless....raw means maybe a little limited, but still a player than can get involved.

    You are talking then 400 yards and 5 tds. I think we already have that on our roster. There names are Crotchery or Sanders take your pick.

    Let me get this straight. Colbert says he sees NO rookie who will be worthy of starting. And at the same time, here are our losses from last years team.

    #1 LT. Gone.
    #1 LG. Gone.
    #1 WR. Gone.
    #1 RB (slated to be). Gone.
    #1 TE. Likely still hurt.
    #1 OLB. Gone.
    #2 CB. Gone.
    #1 NT. Gone.

    8 starting players gone, but Colbert doesn't think any rookie will earn starting time. OK, there, nut job. Maybe with you drafting our players, you might be right, because you have had one decent draft in five years. I guess with you drafting, there won't be any rookies worthy of playing.
