    Players you do not want the Steelers to draft

    I'll start. Jaylen Hurts. A one read QB with a very slow release.

    Hurts should be on the board in round two. I hope he's gone before our pick.

    Yeah and a QB in round 2 would be a wasted pick.

    Jalen Hurts looks like a slower version of the proverbial running QB that can't throw so no.

    Also any day 2 RB. RB has become too devalued and I think they have enough at the position for a by-committee. Plus RB won't make much of a difference without a top tier O-line or a top-tier QB anywau

    Just a question, what position would you like the steelers draft in day 2?

    The big one is O-line with the O-line regressing plus age. Preferably one who is already technically sound over the proverbial "physically gifted but raw". A WR also, probably a tall fast guy

    Yeah,I don't want a player with many off-field issues and which brings a lot of drama even if this player is great ... We know that with his players, it always ends very badly.

    WR Michael Pittman Jr. would not be a good pick I think

    I like Pittman... a lot.

    I can understand not taking him at 49, because WR is not as big of a “need”. But, as a player, I’d be more than fine with this pick.

    I said that because I don't think it's the type of WR that steelers need….The steelers need a WR who is fast.

    He’s not slow.

    Plus, Pittman will get every contested ball.

    I like Hurts a lot. In no way am I saying he becomes starting QB. I just love the way he handled benching and came in to win game at Alabama before he left. It’s more of a sentimental pick and gamble for sure. He has improved greatly though, and if continues to get better who knows. I’ve read he could be a third, if he drops to four or five I would love to take gamble. He could be a Dak kind of quarterback, he’s excellent at read-option. Maybe not starter but Taysom Hill type guy. Offers more than our current back ups.

    I like Hurts a lot too. He has room to improve still but he has improved every year. I don't take any QB at 49 or 102, but in the 4th round, sure.
