In episode seven of the Last Word on Steelers Podcast we welcome guest analyst Logan Helfferich as all three of us roll out our latest mock drafts. We discuss who we think the Steelers should draft and why. This close to the draft we are reading the tea-leaves to try to gauge the Steelers interest in these draft prospects. We consider which players have visited the Steelers, who front office personnel has had dinner meetings with, and which pro days Steelers coaches and scouts have attended when making our pick. The Steelers have had 26 of their 30 official visits that we know of.
A player’s stock can still rise and fall this close to the draft so don’t be surprised if big boards are continually changing all the way up to the start of the draft. Some of the players discussed are Marlon Humphrey, Gareon Conley, Jordan Willis, Tim Williams, T.J. Watt, Desmond King, Brad Kaaya, Raekwon McMillan, Derek Rivers, Carol Phillips, Adam Shaheen, Jamaal Williams, Jeremy Sprinkle, Donnel Pumphrey, Josh Reynolds and more!
In episode eight of the Last Word on Steelers Podcast we will recap the Steelers 2017 NFL draft. We’ll grade and breakdown the newest batch of Steelers and how they affect the roster coming into the 2017 season. We would love to hear Steelers Nation’s input! If you have any comments, suggestions, messages or thoughts feel free to reach out to us!
