2009 Steelers War Board

The following is a list of 285 prospects put together by BTSC reader manosteel and a few of his buddies over at a CBSSports forum they created. I begin with an explanation emailed to me about the process before opening it up to him to share the list. Many thanks to him for this great material! - Blitz-


The process was long and arduous!

It took 5 of us about 3 months, and countless hours of downtime at work, to prepare this list.  We separated the prospects by their positions and then scouted and ranked them within those positions based on their fit with the Steelers.  Then, we each created our own overall ranking and cross referenced them to make one average list.  We spent about 3 weeks moving players up and down the board based on our own personal belief in their fit on the team.  Once that was done, I removed the round separations since they are unimportant.  On draft day, this list will tell us who the highest ranking player still available is when the Steelers are on the clock, based on what we believe the team is looking for in a prospect.

A handful of the top prospects, expected to be drafted in the top 10, have been left off this list for obvious reasons.
