Has to be a future swing tackle.

Very raw.

I’d like to think we start throwing shitty defensive players against the wall to see who sticks.

But...Brady threw for 513 and lost the Super Bowl. So what the fuck do I know.

Do not like at all. Watched him get his ass kicked in person this year. Very underwhelming pick to me

I wanted to see them get Phillips or Settle. Oh well, like FC said, they prolly won't draft guys I like. :mrgreen:

I know nothing about him, but did anyone think after the Jacksonville game that the Steelers needed to address their defense in the draft?

Defense?
We don't need no stinking defense

Well, they basically changed 2/3 of their safeties.

The only thing that makes this make any sense what so ever is if he has the ability to move to LG.

Tomlin actually wasn’t at that game. He was at Sunglass Hut.

Looks the part. Massive frame, long arms. His tape is underwhelming. He could be a Donovan Smith. He is a big, square, naturally powerful dude, and you want so much more. The tape is at best average. The question is, can you light a fire under him? --Mike Mayock

I’ll go ahead and say it. These last two picks suck.

Steelers love pulling guards. That said, I just don't see the athleticism there in Okorafor to play LG.

Tomlin & Colbert don’t have time to worry bout the defense.

They are knee deep in the 2021 season. Most of our current offensive guys will be gone by then so it’s a good thing they are planning ahead.

I just dont want to hear anyone defend their ass if the defense gets trucked again and someone tries to say but but but we just didn’t have the horses.

I feel like we're trying to replace Hubbard with this pick.

Can he play guard or center?

And added a linebacker, who may or may not be average. This team was very bad against physical run teams last year, losing twice to Jacksonville and to the Bears. Big concern going forward.

Maybe he can play DT until he's ready for OL

Sounds like we found our Dan McCuellers on offensive line

You realize that Landry Jones is one play away playing, right?

Are they purposely not drafting a LB because they don’t want to insult Shazier?

I think this is the right coaching staff to throw a tackle project at.

Still, watching the highlights of the Humboldt state guy....I'd rather have THAT dude as a project.
