  1. @riggins5028

    Next year get 2 DL with the first 2 pics

  2. @riggins5028

    Im liking McCormick AKA Pound Cake

  3. @jrhohman6608

    Oh well another dud year, slot was badly needed

  4. @jrhohman6608

    Also they are rolling the dice on Jackson at CB

  5. @jrhohman6608

    SC will kill the Steelers this year mark my words!

  6. @Varzaak

    After we drafted him I went through some of his tape. Was really hard to analyze because he played against small players. He is going to have to work on his strength. He has a year to get bigger. Technique? Again, against lesser talent where he would punch them, and it would stop them in their tracks. I saw Frazier do that against Div 1. But against guys McCormick dwarfs? No clue how effective it will be guys bigger than he is. What I will say he is very smooth where on one play he tuned his hips and pivoted on his forward foot while disengaging from one defender he stood up, and then hit the second guy with a side shot that knocked the defender down. Rarely seen a guy try to pull that off with no loss of momentum. Was pretty impressive. So worst case you got a raw guy that is ridiculously athletic who can be coached up. Personality wise he has the makeup of being very serious about his craft. Very focused player. I feel really good about this guy.

  7. @chrisheld684

    Kevin Dotson is killing it because he's playing at RG, his preferred side. Steelers wanted him at LG, and that's why he sucked. HUGE mistake!! Let's just hope they don't do that same shit with Broderick and play him at LT

  8. @412saint

    I thought Kissel upside with coaching n weights

  9. @KKgames10

    I wanna like but the likes are at 412…. Im conflicted

  10. @sixbloccmusicgroup5463

    I am glade we got Roman Wilson but why doesn’t anyone wanna give Calvin Austin a punchers chance I think he is going to be a star

  11. @noland7827

    He might be better than Frazier tbh watch out lol

  12. @Cpl4200

    This off season is far from over. Moves will be made. Beanie Bishop intrigues me.

  13. @AFL67pitt

    Not using a first round pick on OL since Decastro 2012 created this fire drill the last two years to fix it The Guard pick is future consideration that it doesn’t happen again. If he can’t be a starter it will be figured out before they HAVE to draft a Guard and if a great one happens to fall to them in 2025, 2026 they can snap him up then

  14. @scotthauser5341

    They left Troy Franklin on the table. He would have looked really good in Black and Gold!

  15. @MrFreshEdition

    JPJ, Darius Rush, Cory Trice, Ryan Watts all between 6"'2" and 6'3" and 200lbs + with 4.4 speed plays with physicality. This is a classic Tomlin's CB Room.

  16. @lewisvolk1835

    Let's see over the next week or so who we bring in to fill out our 90 man summer roster. There are several guys that we were interested in that didn't get picked up in the draft.

  17. @MrFreshEdition

    Now to complete the 2024 Steelers. We need to repeat the Wilson philosophy (Russel Wilson, Roman and Payton Wilson) and Resign Cam Sutton and Trade a 2025 6th round pick for Courtland Sutton

  18. @Pearly44-nm7kn

    Chris, great work as always. Get some sleep.

  19. @alexhawes6057

    Very solid draft .. let's see how the develope.

  20. @craigmastendri3980

    Sutton will face a significant suspension from the league.
    McCormick was a good selection. He's the backup C and a backup G this year. Fans have been blissfully ignorant to the 25 cap situation. He potentially becomes a starting G in 25.

  22. @d0nKsTaH

    Couldn't we just draft Big Ben and Troy P all over again and have them for another 10-12 years?

  23. @wizb3629

    🎉 great pick ⚒️🚧 please 🥺 no small hands in any position 🎉 great job Steeler nation

  24. @11SteelerNation17

    Are you guys morons really dude's going to get hurt easily. I promise you that watch second off not one cornerback was even taken. We had our choosing of any of the cornerbacks in the entire draft to go alongside Joey Porter Jr. And we taking offense alignment. We didn't trade it to get Brandon. We didn't trade it to get a top receiver to go along. George Pickens that was a horrible pic dude. They do this crap all the time so now we're stuck in the same situation. One good receiver that's it which we going to do. Run the ball 45 times a game

  25. @adambrodahl9849

    I would take the kid from Iowa all damn day or Jackson Powers

  26. @adambrodahl9849

    I want jackson powers next in then Wr

  27. @user-sj2ri8ti2p

    D rating possible injury prone? Get a center.

  28. @Benny.13

    Who are these guys?

  29. @giovannimassa6780

    A+ he will be installed on the right side and move Jones back too left and for Dan Moore Jr hold the clip board

  30. @rickthayer

    My worry can Pat Meyer coach them up probably 3 new OL starters history says NO

  31. @willplayer4162

    I'm not cool with this pick. His knee was red flagged. We should of grabbed brian Thomas jr or quinyon Mitchell. Or traded down and gained a pair of 2nd rd picks. For real what are we protecting 2 qbs who ain't gone to be here in a year. We need power n weapons. I feel let down bad. Feels like when we played San Francisco this year. I can't wait to see what bs rd2 and rd3 brings . Dan Moore jr gone to beat him out anyway. Remember lat year with Broderick. Should of traded some of big names that get hurt every year. Every..I wanted a dog and got a guinea pig 😢

  32. @KiingConfidence85

    A+ Excellent Pick By Omar Khan 🫡🫡🫡🫡

  33. @mhmt1453

    A+. He will play a long time here, and probably see a few Pro Bowls. I’m always big on drafting O-line high. They aren’t the splash players that people get excited about, but nobody does anything unless the line dominates. Going on a limb here, I bet this guy becomes the strongest guy on the team within three years.

  34. @craigmastendri3980

    HEY, Sperry? A for energy, F for knowledge. You got that dog in ya. I'M Hoping for a C someday. Relax, value pushed to rd 2. The real draft begins tomorrow.

  35. @TimothyChapman-rq6si

    Center wide receiver

  36. @Nice_Tokes

    Troy Fautanu was a great pickup! We just need to utilize our line correctly.

  37. @ChrisPretoni

    Thank God we didn't give the niners our first round pick and make a huge mistake trading for Aiyuk

  38. @kingoftrolls19

    Tomorrow Steelers getting DL

    Then center then corner

  39. @bmcallister1974

    Thrilled to get Fautanu at 20

  40. @brianwoods9266

    Look at how many teams chose a quarterback. Crazy insane, dude. Chicago, get ready for a circus act which will end badly.

    The Steelers chose wisely.
