Playing with the CBS Big Board from a Steelers' point of view.

The table that follows lists the first 50 players on the CBSsports.com Big Board that might be draftable by the Steelers. That was determined by making the following adjustments:

  • Quarterbacks, Offensive Linemen, Running Backs, and pure 4-3 players were removed; and
  • Positions were adjusted to what the prospect would play if drafted by the Steelers (e.g., Jadeveon Clowney is listed as an OLB instead of a DE).

Want some encouraging news? That resulted in a full 30 cuts, which bodes well for our chances to get players we value highly.

THE GAME: Turn this list into a Steelers' Board. Looking purely from a Steeler's point of view:

1) What changes would you make in the overall order, and

2) At what point would the player be a worthy pick?

NOTE: I filled in the final column just to get things started, but the whole idea is to prompt a debate. No trades allowed. The only valuation choices are 1:15, 2:15, 3:COMP, and 4+.

I encourage you to block-and-copy the table for the sake of having fun with your own list, but feel free to just leave comments agreeing/disagreeing with what I wrote.

And if you're wondering, the answer is "Yes." This is my way of continuing the Steelers Big Board discussion while waiting for the Combine before I do a full update. What can I say?
