Steelers Draft Day: 2nd & 3rd Rounds Live Blog And Chat


Round 1 is out of the way, and the Steelers are poised to have a big Friday with the 2nd and 3rd round.  The Jarvis Jones pick reveals that the Steelers are set to improve the defense this year.  Will they choose more defense in the next rounds, or switch to offense and address the needs at WR and RB?  We’ll still continue the conversation about Jones and what his addition could mean to the roster in the short and long term.

Be sure to join us tonight on this page starting at 6pm EST as NPC continues to cover 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!

    Markus Wheaton WR from Oregon State

    • Dom DiTolla

      Hooray! Receiving corps gets speedier!

      • Kimmy

        Yay! Dom is in a better mood now! lol no more Negative Nancy tonight? I like this pick too, good value he’s a pretty high rated WR

        • Dom DiTolla

          I know, I was surprised he lasted this long. I watched a lot of him at Oregon State, and he is a better version of Wallace when he was a rookie.

          • Dom DiTolla

            Can also be utilized on end-arounds and reverses, and will stretch the field vertically as well as horizontally.

            Who do you think will be left tomorrow so that CB can be crossed off of the shopping list?

          • Dom DiTolla

            CB I’m not worried about. What they really need is depth at safety and inside linebacker.

    wheaton to steelers!

    • Dom DiTolla

      Win! Getting a speed guy to replace Wallace. He’s a very underrated route-runner and receiver overall. I like this pick.

  • scott sinclair

    I’d love to see them address DL, TE and S rest of way..maybe an OLB like Gerald Hodges as well

    • Dom DiTolla

      Hodges would be a good fit for an inside ‘backer. Hopefully they get a strong safety like Shamarko Thomas or someone like Phillip Thomas.

  • Kimmy

    Well I will keep my fingers crossed for safeties and linebackers tomorrow. Night all. Go Steelers!

    • Dom DiTolla

      Take it easy. Was fun to chat today!

    • scott sinclair
