I’d look to get 10-11 picks, draft an OT, WR and RB and then every other pick on defense.

I'd try to take a 3rd-4th Round RB every 2-3 years, and if we get a WR, I want a big bodied outside guy. The Red Zone threat and move the chains thread outside the numbers will open up the TE and slot WR/Jarvis game exponentially, and then you have a RB out of the backfield in the flats...whereas right now, that other "outside guy" doesn't exist and limits things to one side of the field in the NFL often times.

After tonight I’m trading down until I have about 8 picks in rounds 2, 3 and 4 to add some actual talent and depth to this defense.

These vets are awful.

Is there a draft in the past decade where trading down would not have been your first choice? 😆 I love the “after tonight” stipulation.

Just spend every draft pick on defense. I’ve seen zero hope for that unit. The offense proved it can be at least serviceable.

This past draft.   I was consistent in saying I wanted a tackle at 10.

2018.  I wanted a QB at 1. I did want to move down from 4.

2017.  I wanted Myles. I did want to move down from 12.

im not gonna pretend I remember all my preferences in order past that.

Death, taxes, and LGB wanting to trade down...

the only 3 guarantees in life!

I want the next 2 draft classes + free agency periods to be all defense.

 

If things work out with OBJ, I could see the entire starting 11 on that side of the ball returning next year. Baker will be back no matter what, even if he has a bad year. I can’t think of anybody on offense we would just get rid of besides OBJ. Then again, a year is a eternity away.

I get your motivation, but ignoring that side of the ball entirely is how you end up with holes in 2-3 years.

As of now we have the potential to be set with starters, but we still need to be looking for eventual replacements for guys like Bitonio, Tretter (if Harris ain’t it), perhaps a WR or two, etc.  We don’t need to spend firsts or anything, but I wouldn’t pass up a solid G prospect in R3/4, etc.

You can just sign guys like that off the streets. They might not be as good as Bitonio, but the Steelers routinely just sign free agents that plug and play.

Honestly, I wouldn’t be so worried about the defense if I knew our offense could consistently put up points and look like they did on Thursday.

Do they?  They drafted DeCastro and Faneca in the first round, Kemoeatu was drafted by them, Trai Essex was a 3rd rounder, they just drafted Dotson in the 4th to sit behind DeCastro.

Obviously they HAVE signed UDFA previously but I wouldn’t say that’s their plan.

Joshua Youngblood of Kansas State is the most exciting return man I’ve seen in a long time in college football. He plays Oklahoma at 12:00.

Kyle Pitts is a stud. Kyle Trask is going to make some team a nice back up qb for a long time.
