Steeler Nation, its that time of year again. The NFL Draft has arrived and one thing is for sure the stars will be out tonight. The first round of the NFL draft begins tonight and every team will be trying to hitch it’s wagon to a star. Every player taken tonight is thought by it’s team to be the next big star, the next building block to a bright future.
In all my years of watching the draft after the pick is made a team representative is asked about the pick and every team is just gushing over their pick. For tonight these players are the key to the future, the best of the best in college football . Many of these players have been stars since pee wee football.
The sad truth is tonight probably will be the last time that over half of them will be a star. The elite at their positions. Tonight is their night but many will never reach that level of success at the next level.
Every fan and team will be filled with hopes and expectations of this player being the next great one and that’s whats so great about this time of the year. Every team has thoughts that this player could be a difference maker. The final piece of the Super Bowl winning puzzle and who can argue. Tonight they are all stars. Only time will tell if they will continue to shine bright or burn out and fade into the night.
Who will the Steelers pick tonight ?
I think the Steelers will draft a cornerback and that player will be Byron Jones out of Connecticut University. He is 6-1, 199, fast, very athletic with a lot of upside. Jones is a very smart, high character guy and that may just be the selling point that puts him above the other cornerbacks in this talented group.
Who do you think the Steelers choose tonight and why?
