Steelers Draft Day: 1st Round Live Blog and Chat


The day is finally upon us.  It’s day one of the 2013 NFL Draft, and Radio City Music Hall is reved up for prime time.  Rodger Goodell has his hairs done and those teeth whitened.

Steeler fans, this year’s draft will prove to be an exciting one as the picks roll in from all around the league – the is probably one of the biggest drafts where there are no clear picks for each team based on the talen available.  The Steelers, who have the 17th overall pick, have a different priority depending on who you ask.  Will they go with a wide receiver like Cordell Patterson?  Or what about safety Kenny Vaccaro?  Or will OLB Jarvis Jones be correct in his assertion that he won’t go past the 17th pick and the Steelers?

Be sure to join us tonight on this page starting just before 8pm as NPC covers the draft.  We’ll be doing live updates, and we highly encourage you, our readers, to join us.  The site uses Disqus, so the comments section updates live – tell us what you think while it unfolds throughout the entire evening.  We hope to see you here and are excited to see what you have to say!

And as always – GO STEELERS!

    wow..bills, wow, thought it’d be nassib

  • Dom DiTolla

    Heck, if Geno falls to #48, I think the Steelers should take him. Probably won’t happen, but still.

  • scott sinclair

    ok boys…here we go!

  • Craig

    Sounds like Jarvis Jones for Steelers

  • Craig

    I’m kind of disappointed with all who’s left.

    • Dom DiTolla

      Maybe they’ll trade back now.

  • scott sinclair

    lots of moan and groans…a trade??

    • Craig

      draft tracker shows a cowboy 49er trade

      • Dom DiTolla

        Damn. I would have been right.

  • Craig

    So who the hell did the Steelers pick!?

  • Craig

    Jones it is.

    • Dom DiTolla

      Like Patterson, either a multiple Pro Bowler, or an epic bust.

  • scott sinclair

    ok..it’s jones!

  • Craig

    So Steelers pick Jones – we’ll see him around 2015.

    • Dom DiTolla

      I’m mentioning that in my grade. I love the pick, I just hope he sees the field.

  • Lori P.

    Good. Rather see a defensive pick early than a RB.

  • Dom DiTolla

    Giants can get Shariff Floyd. Holy Crap their D-Line is going to be awesome.

  • Lori P.

    My husband is a Giants fan and he just said pick Te’o. I don’t know if I agree

  • Lori P.

    Saw a lot of rumors of Te’o to Chicago earlier

  • Dom DiTolla

    Still can’t believe Floyd and Eifert are on the board.

  • scott sinclair

    eifert to bungles??? steelers better load up on DBs from here on

    • Dom DiTolla

      Gresham and Eifert are going to be dangerous. They might look to move Orson Charles.

  • Dom DiTolla

    Scott, Lori, are you calling in for the podcast tonight?

    • scott sinclair

      I can’t tonight. Have to be up early tomorrow to teach. Sorry!

  • scott sinclair

    what is john gruden smoking??

  • Craig

    Dom, there’s go Patterson!!!!

    • Dom DiTolla

      Nuts!

      • Dom DiTolla

        Maybe I should just talk about guys I don’t want the Steelers to take in Round 2. C’mon Margus Hunt.

  • Dom DiTolla

    Who do you think Dallas, St. Louis, and Baltimore will draft?

  • Dom DiTolla

    Dang, Rams got Ogletree.

  • Dom DiTolla

    Travis Frederick? Is Jerry Jones on bath salts at this point? Lol.

  • Dom DiTolla

    Bye Everybody. Can’t wait to see Jones rush the passer, and I sure hop that Mingo, Eifert, and Elam don’t burn the Steelers over the coming years. I’ll see you all tomorrow afternoon.
