As the Winter Olympics and the start of Pittsburgh Pirates spring training, the Pittsburgh Steelers have taken a quick backseat in the press. Of course, General manager Kevin Colbert did meet with the media to discuss the direction of the franchise.
With this being a deep draft, the Steelers cannot afford to reach on a position if value sits on the board at another area. In starting the draft preps for the site, that is the exact situation the team would appear to be in moving forward.
There is no doubt the team must address the secondary (corner and safety), the defensive line (nose tackle and end), linebacker, and wide receiver, with an outside look at tight end or offensive line. With so many needs, the Steelers can likely go any position at any round, and land a solid talent.
While this philosophy will be good for head coach Mike Tomlin and Colbert, the mention of it publicly is already starting to cause some backlash from some fans. Things this season are different, and the Steelers cannot go by need and need alone, they must take the best player for their system, period!
