The Friday Open Thread has been bumped up a couple of days due to obvious reasons. We wanted to give the faithful followers of that long standing tradition a chance to come together. What better time than the Eve of the Draft or Christmas in Spring, whichever you prefer. Just remember that while this is an Open Thread, a level of respect is asked to be maintained.
Let’s get to the questions:
Question 1 - We have talked for the past couple of months about who we like as a potential draft pick for our favorite team. There have been debates and disagreements on the good and bad of each prospect. What I want to know is, who is the one prospect that you don’t want the Pittsburgh Steelers to draft?
Question 2 - I don’t have the facts to back this up but at some point I want to take a look at what school we have drafted the most college prospects from. It sure seems we have gone the route of Ohio State on numerous occasions. Guys like Mike Vrabel, Santonio Holmes, Cam Heyward and Ryan Shazier come to mind. It just seems like we are due to tap into that rich vein of talent. Who would be your pick from Ohio State in 2019?
Question 3 - Listening to the press conference the other day between Kevin Colbert and Coach Tomlin, I got the sense that Tomlin expects great things out of James Washington in 2019, and beyond. The mention of a very deep wide receiver class, suggests to me that we may be looking at day three before we see a receiver selected. Do you share the same feelings that Coach Tomlin has about James Washington and what round do you see the Steelers adding to that room?
Question 4 - Is there an FCS standout that you would like the Pittsburgh Steelers to take a shot at? Feel free to add multiple names.
Question 5 - All the draft talk here at BTSC has been centered around pick 20, and rightfully so. I want to dig a little deeper, the Steelers have had success with finding UDFAs in the past. The vaunted offensive line has several members that were former UDFAs. Give me 5 prospects that you would like the Steelers to bring in once the dust has settled from the draft.
Question 6 - Getting down to the brass tacks, who’s it going to be at Pick 20?
Thanks Jeff for allowing me the honor of this fine tradition. Have at it folks and GO STEELERS!!!!!!
