I am very thankful that the NFL draft only comes around once a year. Sitting in front of the television and laptop for about 10 hours in a single weekend isn't healthy or productive, but hey; you better believe we had a blast at BTSC with more traffic than this site has ever seen. Thanks to all of you who stuck around all weekend chiming in and letting your feelings be known on all nine draft choices.
Now that all the picks are complete the Steelers will go to work with this group of men and begin rookie training camps, off-season workout programs, and salary negotiations. This week the media will go about trying to grade the draft for each team and our discussion on the site will start to revolve around training camp battles, possible free agent signings, and the start of the 2009 NFL Season.
Here is a complete list of all the Steelers 2009 draft picks and some links to additional information on the newest members of Steeler Nation.
