    Its the rest of the draft the Steelers have to do well especially on the 2nd day of the draft. Cowhers/Colberts draft picks on the 2nd day the last few years have really stunk lately.
    I don't think they have to hit a homerun. They more or less have to (or probably will) draft a play who "fits the system". I do agree that strength of this draft has to or will be in the late rounds. Those late round picks are more important than people think.

    Jermaine Stephens, Huey Richardson, Jeremy Staat, Alonzo Jackson, Scott Sheilds, Kris Ferris, and Fred Gibson... come to mind.

    I have a bad feeling we are gonna be able to add Colclough to that list...
    Haha I thought Fred Gibson was going to be good.........

    It amazes me the 'notables' that were available as choices.. not just the WR notables, but the others as well.

    Just shows you college studs don't mean **** in the NFL. It's a crap shoot, lol.

    I decided to do a little honorable mention 2003 and before .

    2003- Arizona 16th overall Bryant Johnson 164 - 2147 - 9...bustage and his stats will never get to where a first rounder should be getting because if he isnt off the the Cards he'll be 3rd man for a long time

    2001- Washington 15th overall Rod Gardner 242 -3165 -23 ...career pretty much over and being a first rounder you should last this little

    2000- Kansas City 21st overall Sylvester Morris 48 - 678 - 3

    They definitely got the #1 bust right. Charles Rogers, he's fragile and he likes his drugs.

    Didn't we trade up to get Fred Gibson because Cowher was so high on him ? In fact the worst thing about everyone on that list, is that they were all highly regarded by Cowher and guys that we targeted as something special.
