One BTSC writer shares his initial and real time
unadulterated reactions to the final rounds of the NFL draft."Once again Benny Snell Jersey 2019 , Knee-jerk Reactions are immediate responses to a situation without taking the time to analyze the situation. That’s something as sports fans that we typically do. Steeler Nation reacted as such with the Round 3 selection of Diontae Johnson from Toledo. As is the custom, I compile my knee jerk thoughts and publish them immediately after each Steelers game. It’s my version of shooting first and apologizing later. So with that being said, I’m going to employ that philosophy here for the draft and follow up yesterday’s Day Two account with my instant Day Three reactions to each Steelers selection.Steelers picking in Round 4 Pick 122RB Bennie Snell Jr. - KentuckyWas hoping for Chauncey Gardner-Johnson or some help at the safety position. But CGJ is in New Orleans. I think they might go RB. I have three guys on my mind Justice Hill, Bryce Love and Bennie Snell Jr. There goes Love.Hill to Ravens...yuck.They could go Foster Moreau at TE.Draft party looks like a blast.Love the Snell pick. This guy is an absolute load.Steelers love legacies.48 rushing TDs in three seasons. Wow!!!!! Sweet pick.Steelers picking in Round 5 Pick 141TE Zach Gentry -MichiganThey could go a number of places here.Can still use help at safety. Moreau is gone. Need to add a TE.Not familiar with this guy. But he’s 6’8”. I love his size.He doesn’t seem to be much of a blocker, but Jesse James didn’t seem like one at first either.Could be a project or could be a big target for Ben.With Moreau gone to the Raiders. This is decent.Steelers picking in Round 6 Pick 175EDGE Sutton Smith -Northern IllinoisThey haven’t addressed safety, an offensive lineman, edge rusher or defensive lineman yet. I would think they will do that pretty soon.Not familiar with Sutton Smith. He’s undersized for a rushing LB Cheap Benny Snell Jersey , but so was Deebo.233 lbs. He may bulk up.You can’t argue with 15 sacks and 26 1/2 tackles for a loss.A sixth rounder who racks up sacks. Don’t sneeze at it. Like.Steelers picking in Round 6 Pick 192DL Isaiah Buggs - Alabama They seem to be addressing all of their needs. At this point, there aren’t many familiar names I actually know who Buggs is. An Alabama DL. Karl Dunbar gets one of his old guys late again.Leading stacker on the Crimson Tide. More than Quinnen Williams.This is great depth.Steelers picking in Round 6 Pick 207LB Ulysses Gilbert III - AkronWe just drafted the love child of Marcus Gilbert and Ulysses S. Grant.I had heard good things about this guy. Like Sutton Smith, he’s going to make his hay on ST.He’s going to have to have to battle.Steelers picking in Round 7 Pick 219OL Derwin Gray -MarylandDepth at lineman. Don’t know him. But they do.At this point, it’s pure scouting.There you have it. I’ll review these thoughts and may think more rationally after I’ve had a chance to iron my brain droppings out. Overall, I’m pleased and feel hopelessly optimistic regarding this draft. In a league where stars rarely win contract disputes and rarely choose their teams, Antonio Brown did both. Other players are noticing.Shortly after Brown got his wish of a trade out of Pittsburgh and a new contract, Chiefs offensive lineman Jeff Allen said in a series of tweets that Brown helped show that players can occasionally win a game that is usually won by the owners.“AB just disrupted a system that’s designed for us to contractually lose in. If you hate it then hate what the other side does everyday Jack Lambert Jersey ,” Allen wrote.Allen believes that Brown was wise to make waves publicly and force the Steelers’ hand.“He had to publicly do this to even have a chance of being moved. If he would have quietly tried this which a lot guys do he’d still be in Pittsburgh. Owners can move in silence because they have the power,” Allen wrote.In Allen’s view, if owners don’t want players to try to force their way out of situations like Brown just did, then owners should guarantee all contracts.“It’s football you get hurt. It’s a 100% injury rate. I’m fair and honest, you can care about winning along with your check. Guys wouldn’t care about money if contracts were fully guaranteed. AB was already paid he just wasn’t happy in Pittsburgh it’s simple,” Allen wrote. “What does a contract mean when you can get cut after getting hurt while laying your body on the line for your team or cut just because they feel like you aren’t worth what the contract says.”Allen said he personally wouldn’t do the same thing Brown did, but he knows he doesn’t have the leverage that a four-time first-team All-Pro like Brown has.“I can’t do what he did Jack Ham Jersey , you have to be honest with yourself,” Allen wrote.At a time when Brown has lost a lot of fans in Pittsburgh, he has surely gained a lot of fans among his fellow players, who are glad to see a player come out ahead in a dispute with his team.
