Some really high draft picks on that list. Goes to show QB isn't the only way to set your team back in the draft.

Steelers also have Jake Rodgers T/G from last years practice squad available who could make the 53 as a swing lineman.

Out of those OLinemen... I think only a few can actually play well enough to start and backup. Robinson and Joeckel were over drafted and have not panned out in their careers. Both have been moved inside from tackle and just haven't seemed to find their groove. Schwenke would be my first choice inside. Gilmore packed on 40 pounds to play tackle and hasn't really developed. Perhaps with Munchak [OLineman whisperer] Gilmore could develop into a solid swing OT?

If I recall Rodgers was taken either from waivers or off the practice squad and signed to the Texans roster last season. Rodgers has potential I agree. If there has to be injuries this early I'm ok with them coming at OLine and TE. Those two positions and the specific two players that have been injured aren't exactly going to break the team. That said, there's still plenty of time for others to step in and up. Meaning more reps for the younger [newer] guys like Okorafor, Prince, Cheek, Graham as well as the backup guys with experience like Rodgers, Feiler. Gets them acquainted with next man up scenario and allows the staff a better evaluation. JMO

Side Note: Some early FA's I find intriguing.

DLine Jalen Wilkerson 22 yrs old.
DLine Lord Hyeamang 21 yrs old.
LB Jimmie Gilbert 21 yrs old.
S/ILB Mason McKendrick 22 yrs old.

Could happen to anyone.

So, after Matthews got hit in the face, they brought out a batting practice screen and then Kentrell Brice (on Matthews' team) half bunted the ball–looked like on purpose–in a place where the pitcher had to go around the screen to make a play, which he couldn't do in time, and then the pitcher threw the ball away down the RF line.

I just had to admire the quick-thinking of the guy who bunted in front of the screen.
