A Letter From the Editor: With the draft approaching, we want to deliver for Steelers fans everywhere

The 2021 NFL Draft is on the horizon, and we here at BTSC are hoping to deliver for all Steelers fans around the globe.

It might seem hard to believe, but we are about two weeks away from the 2021 NFL Draft, and we here at BTSC are hoping to deliver for the black and gold faithful around the world.

With that said, I felt it to be the right time to give the annual update on what we plan on providing to our readers/listeners leading up to, and during, the draft.

Considering how our podcast platform has grown, I felt it would be important to have this broken down into two sections: Editorial and Podcast. Let’s start with Editorial, considering you are reading this article.

On the editorial side we will want to provide you, the reader, with the most comprehensive breakdown of the draft possible. Leading up to the draft you will continue to see my draft breakdowns of specific players, mock drafts, the big board and film room breakdowns. Pretty much what we’ve been doing this past month.

During the draft things will shift and you will see a change in both how the site looks, as well as the coverage of the draft. I will be creating what are called “streams” for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd round draft picks, then one stream for Day 3 selections. These will be on the main page, and if you click on them it will take you to all the coverage on the players in the article.

In other words, since we will be churning out the initial article, knee jerk reaction, grades, etc. it will be easy for articles you slip by you. Be sure to check those streams so you don’t miss any of the breakdowns, film rooms and more on every player picked.

It is a big weekend for the site on the editorial side of things, and we hope you all are as excited as we are for the big three day event!

As for podcasts, we plan on providing as much quality content/analysis as possible for all three days of the draft. Dave Schofield will be providing an immediate Breaking News podcast talking about every pick made by the Steelers, this show will be no more than 10 minutes in length.

After that, we will be using our entire podcasting team to give you individual podcasts with plenty of opinion, analysis and breakdowns of all of the picks. There will be individual shows for picks in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd rounds, a show for both 4th round picks and a show for the Day 3 selections.

It will be crazy, and chaotic at times, but we want to leave no stone left unturned when the draft rolls around. I also have to be honest, we are doing this not just because of page views or downloads, but because we, as a staff, are extremely excited about the Steelers upcoming draft class. We hope you are equally as excited, and will enjoy the content!

As always, if you have any questions, comments or concerns, feel free to put a comment below and we’d be glad to talk about the upcoming coverage!
