THere is a good write up on Behind the Steel Curtain on what the draftniks do not know that the teams do for the actually draft. A good thing to remember before people get full of themselves with these picks.

Pittsburgh Steelers

The Steelers value size and physicality at safety more than most and they certainly found those qualities in Virginia Tech's Terrell Edmunds, who was overshadowed by his younger brother with the Hokies but was viewed as a Kam Chancellor (another former V-Tech star) clone by scouts. It is possible that he would be available early in Round Two but probably not at Pittsburgh's next selection, No. 60. The family theme carried through with Pittsburgh's next two selections with Oklahoma State's dynamic duo of wide receiver James Washington and quarterback Mason Rudolph, who jointly announced a year ago their plans to return for their senior seasons and collectively dominated the Big 12 throughout their respective careers. Few clubs have shown a better track record with receivers outside of the first round than Pittsburgh and Washington - one of the best deep-ball receivers in this class - fits the mold of previous stars. His squareish body gives him more of a running back-like frame than receiver. A lack of elite velocity pushed him down the board but Rudolph has a Ben Roethlisberger-like frame, touch and trajectory to fit into Pittsburgh's downfield attacking offense. Like Washington, perception differs from reality with the Steelers' selection of do-everything back Jaylen Samuels, who didn't run well during workouts but might just possess the softest hands and route-running savvy of any back in this draft. Grade: B

Not a bad grade from what I've seen around the internet. Rang's only A's are Browns and Broncos....
