Evaluating the Pittsburgh Steelers draft class

Evaluating the Pittsburgh Steelers draft class

Sutton is the first Tennessee defensive back to be selected in the NFL Draft since 2010 when the Kansas City Chiefs picked Eric Berry with the fifth overall selection.

With two older brothers already in the NFL, Steelers first-round pick T.J. Watt intends to carve out his own identity.

At 6-foot-2 and 240 pounds, Conner returned to the lineup with 16 touchdowns last season. He had to sit out in 2015 but quickly established himself as a potential starter while on the scout team. In just one year, he had 59 total tackles and 11.5 sacks with one touchdown. To learn more about the player, here are some details from our T.J. Watt wiki! "I feel like the sky's the limit for what I can do on the field".

Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert said Wisconsin coach Paul Chryst - who previously coached at Pitt - reached out to the Steelers and asked them to gauge Watt's potential as an early entrant in the draft. Smith-Schuster is a taller receiver who can go one-on-one with most corners and has great hands as well. The Pewaukee, WI native came to Wisconsin as a tight end before switching to defensive end a year later. All of the 32 National Football League franchises make up to seven rounds' worth of rookie acquisitions in order to build and maintain competitive rosters for seasons to come. "And T.J., younger brother of J.J., fits in well on the Pittsburgh defense".

The team he shared a practice facility with on the South Side for the past four years swooped in and took Pitt's star running back with the 105th overall selection, a compensatory choice in the third round as it wound down nearing midnight. He should contribute immediately as a situational pass rusher. He fills a pass-rush need and he is a rising player.

You only need to look at Wilson’s stat line to see just how effective he is at the quarterback position . With Russell Wilson at quarterback, anything is possible.

"Really during that semester off it was like okay, I realized what I had given up and what football really truly meant to me", said Ramczyk. You cannot teach elite speed, but you can teach him how to time his jumps and play smart when rushing around the edge. "The things that accompany the quarterback position are natural for him".

Despite only playing a couple of seasons at outside linebacker, Watt recorded a breakout year in 2016.

Continue to keep hitting that refresh button this afternoon as the Steelers are due up again in both the sixth and seventh rounds of the draft and the Steelers' cover32 team will continue to have further coverage for you.

At last month's NFL Combine, Watt ranked in the top two among linebackers in the vertical jump, broad jump, three-cone drill, 20-yard shuttle and 60-yard shuttle. The Steelers had trouble getting to the quarterback a year ago and needed another pass rusher.
