    Just became the steal of the draft.

    Holy shit...this could really be the 1974 Steelers.

    Good rotational depth for now until, he matures and learns what is the Greg's system concerning the front seven is all about. There's some definite talent but, is he willing to pay the price of being "The best he can be"?

    Pass rushing specialist at the very least in year one. We are loaded at the position now. Desmond Bryant, Big Danny, Ogunjobi, and Brantley. That's some nice depth and talent.

    C'mon Chill - did you get into Brooksie's stupid pills? Thought I was missing a few....

    How do you forget Garrett? LOL. I know - you're just in rigorous training for when you are old like me......

    I don't know if I would go quite that far- however - I get your point completely. The 2017 Draft was LOADED defensively, so we have to keep in mind that "normal" 2nd or 3rd round talent may have been pushed down a round, just because the talent pool was so plentiful.

    But A 2nd round talent dropping to the 6th round? As long as he keeps his character issues in check - that is defined as a steal in any draft.

    Yeah, I admit comparing it to the 1974 Steelers was over top. So was comparing Peppers to Polamalu for that matter.

    But the potential for both is there. Lots of ifs, but IF these players are as good as their tape & are coached effectively, we just drafted our core of players for the next decade - there's 6 immediate starters: Garrett, Peppers, Njoku, Ogunjobi, Brantley & Wilson (once he recovers from his injury). Shit a 7th in Gonzalez if you want to count him. That in itself is a wildly successful draft. Now factor in Kizer - if he turns out to be our answer at QB long-term...name me a better draft than that.

    I know I'm a little loco in my support for what the team does. And that makes me ripe for criticism from those whose scars haven't healed from past disasters. Whatever. Way I see it, my opinion is just as valid as someone who says, 'They suck, and will continue to.'

    At least I have some rationale behind my opinion.

    We now have 4 1st rounders. I think Brantly could have been a late 1st rounder without he off field stuff. We got ourselves a real steal.

    Which is why I don't understand the outrage over us taking Brantley in the 6th round. If you wanna be offended, direct it at the Bengals taking Mixon in the 2nd...they hardly made that guy pay for his transgressions...which were FILMED. Meaning, no doubt whatsoever over what he did.

    We took a guy slated to be a late 1st/early 2nd pick in the 6th over "reports" that he "may" be charged with a crime. And Sashi was real clear after taking him that if there was any truth to the charges, he would be cut.

    Cinci rewarded a known woman beater. We stole a guy late who had charges pending, since dropped. So if someone is offended by that, be sure you're offended at the right entity. Ain't us.
