Kevin Colbert had implied earlier in the week that the Steelers would explore every avenue at their disposal to build the roster and strengthen their weaknesses. He discussed a willingness to trade up in the draft to acquire a impact player, a aggressive maneuver that goes against the Steelers normal modus operandi. It's not like the Steelers never trade up in the first round, they have been very successful in the past when they have done so, it's something that just doesn't happen very often. It has to be a confluence of cost and demand, of immediate need and limited availability, slim pickings if you will. This draft proved to be the perfect storm.With the Cincinnati Bengals sitting with the 11th pick of the opening round and waiting with bated breath for the Denver Broncos to make their selection, it looked to all the world that the Bengals were preparing to add the top rated inside linebacker left on the board to their roster. That was the most highly anticipated move being prophesied for the Bengals through the mock draft silly season, but some prophecies never come to fruition. The Steelers worked out a trade with the Broncos to move ahead of the Bengals and they used the 10th pick of the 2019 NFL Draft to select Michigan ILB Devin Bush, universally recognized as the second best inside linebacker prospect in this draft class. With LSU LB Devin White off the board, Bush had to be one of the highest rated players left on the Steelers wish list at a tremendous area of need. Kevin Colbert and the Steelers did what they had to do to get their desired target, something they were seemingly unable to accomplish during the 2018 NFL Draft. Mission accomplished.Now to accurately evaluate the pick, we must consider a trio of variables. We must examine Devin Bush's athleticism and intangibles James Conner Jersey , how his abilities will strengthen the Steelers defense, and his overall fit with the Steelers organization. At first glance, Bush grades out quite well.Devin Bush the player is a sideline to sideline tackling machine, a true pursuit linebacker. He is slightly undersized at 5'11" and 234 lbs., but plays larger than his measurements. He is ultra aggressive and arrives at the ballcarrier with bad intentions. His impressive speed and COD (change of direction) skills helps him excel in coverage, an ability that I am sure the Steelers found very attractive. I don't want to put undue pressure on the young man; because nobody can replace Ryan Shazier's otherworldly speed and the leadership impact of his competitive spirit, but Bush's selection will go a long way toward filling the huge hole left in the middle of the Steelers defense with Shazier's departure.Bush's turnover numbers were pretty underwhelming during his time at Michigan and it is an area he will need to focus on improving moving forward in his professional career. The Steelers were evidently not too concerned, which is understandable when you consider the level of his abilities.Bush also appears to be a great fit for the Steelers and their team culture. He reportedly has a love for the game, the desire to compete, and a strong respect for those who came before him. He understands his place in the Steelers legacy of great linebackers. The son of a former NFL player, he should have no shortage of strong council as he weaves his way through the potential minefield facing any rookie and newly minted millionaire.So what did the Steelers give up to get Devin Bush? To swap first round selections with Denver the Steelers gave the Broncos the 20th pick in the first round, their second round selection (52 overall pick) this year, and a third round selection in next year's draft. In my opinion, that is an acceptable price to pay to move up and select the inside linebacker prospect you feel will solidify your defense and fill a glaring need.Therefore I give the Steelers selection of Devin Bush a overall grade of B.Bush fills a definite area of need and appears to be a great fit with the Steelers. However https://www.thesteelerslockerroom.com/authentic-terrell-edmunds-jersey , the Steelers did have to move up to get him, and I truly feel he may have been their second choice.What grade do you give this Steelers selection? Please vote in the attached poll and share your explanations in the comments below.Welcome to the Pittsburgh Steelers, Devin Bush! From all of us at Steelers Nation! The Pittsburgh Steelers’ season is over, but if you think the news surrounding the black-and-gold is over — think again. For the drama-filled Steelers, things are just heating up, and this is where the daily links article comes in. You might have missed some key news, and we fill you in and give you the latest, and sometimes greatest, news surrounding the Steelers.Today in the Black-and-gold links article we take a look at the scathing criticism by Steelers great Hines Ward very well could right on the money. Like it or not, sometimes hear these things just doesn’t sit well, but it doesn’t make it fiction.Let’s get to the news:Tim Benz: Hines Ward is right – Steelers are now the Bengals, must become the PatriotsBy: Tim Benz, Pittsburgh Tribune-ReviewIf you don’t value my opinion on the declining state of the Steelers, that’s fine. Maybe you’ll value the opinion of another guy many folks said was too short. Except he did play in the NFL.He was pretty good at it. You might remember him. His name is Hines Ward.”When we’re talking about the Steelers off the field more than we’re talking about the Steelers on the field Womens Terrell Edmunds Jersey , it’s a problem,” Ward said to USA Today. “Remember those Cincinnati Bengals, when they were worried about the shenanigans with (Chad) Ochocinco and T.J. (Houshmandzadeh)? That’s who the Steelers are now.”Sounds familiar, no?”I just think the culture that Mike Tomlin has created, or that exists in Pittsburgh, that’s not the standard of the Pittsburgh Steelers,” Ward added.The former Steelers receiver made those comments during Super Bowl week, a few days after I sent that tweet. So, apparently, we are of like mind on this front. The one-time Super Bowl MVP also used the word ”circus” to describe the Steelers. That’s another word I have used myself, much to the chagrin of Steelers management.Ward is right. The Steelers have become like those other teams: A talented but disorganized and underachieving lot that’s more known for their headlines off the field than the ones they make on it.The only people refuting that belief are those in the organization trying polish the horse droppings of 2018, some fans who can’t bring themselves to admit the truth, and some media members who feel like carrying water for the team.Ward said those things from a place of concern for his NFL alma mater. Not to get folks retweeting his quote with flame emojis.Frankly, I was doing the same. I hate admitting what the Steelers have become. I’d love to see the team get back to what it was when Ward was playing.It wasn’t the smoothest of times back then either Womens James Conner Jersey , mind you. Ward played a role in that. He once griped about not getting the ball enough ... in training camp. He questioned Ben Roethlisberger for not playing when the quarterback had a concussion.Roethlisberger created a monsoon of negative press. Joey Porter constantly found himself in off-the-field situations. Plaxico Burress, too. Not to mention Cedric Wilson and James Harrison.But when it was time to play — and practice — in the early 2000s, those guys shelved those issues and took care of business and went to Super Bowls.Remind you of anyone else?(To read more, click in the link in the headline above...)Steelers still considering using transition tag on Le’Veon BellBy: Adam Schefter, ESPNThe Pittsburgh Steelers are still considering using their transition tag on Le’Veon Bell, which would give them the right to match any offer sheet the free-agent-to-be signs with any other team, a league source told ESPN.The prospect of using the transition tag on the star running back creates an interesting situation, considering the fact that receiver Antonio Brown is likely to be traded, while Bell could possibly be back in Pittsburgh for 2019.Pittsburgh’s decision depends on how much another team would value Bell and whether the Steelers would be willing to match the offer sheet.There also is a battle brewing between the NFL and and NFL Players Association over the value of what the transition tag would be on Bell if the Steelers did use it. Bell and the NFLPA will argue that the transition tag is close to $14.5 million based on the escalating value of tags, and the Steelers and the NFL will say it’s closer to $9.5 million because Bell sat out this past season.No player has ever been in a situation like this. If the league wins the ruling, it will add even more leverage to teams using franchise and transition tags. If the NFLPA wins, it will give players more rights if they decide to skip seasons when tagged.Kansas City Chiefs early favorites to win Super Bowl LIV next seasonBy: Ben Fawkes, ESPNThe New England Patriots are champions for the second time in three seasons after defeating the Los Angeles Rams, but Las Vegas doesn’t believe they are the favorites to win the Super Bowl again next season.Instead T. J. Watt Jersey White , the Kansas City Chiefs and NFL MVP QB Patrick Mahomes are getting oddmakers’ respect.The Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook opened odds to win Super Bowl LIV in early January. The Chiefs had the second-best odds at 7-1, with the Rams as the favorite at 6-1. However, in the weeks since, Kansas City has shifted to the 6-1 favorite there and at multiple other Las Vegas sportsbooks.New England, Los Angeles and the New Orleans Saints have the second-best odds at 8-1 at Westgate. No other team has odds in the single digits.The teams with the next-best odds are the Pittsburgh Steelers, Los Angeles Chargers and Chicago Bearsat 14-1 at the SuperBook. The Cleveland Browns are among six teams with 20-1 odds.”One word: Mahomes,” Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook director John Murray told ESPN, citing why the Chiefs are now the favorite.”We’ve got the Chiefs as the favorite,” vice president of risk at CG Technology Jason Simbal told ESPN. “We’ve taken the most bets and money on them so far.”The story is the same in New Jersey, where the Chiefs are the 6-1 favorites at SugarHouse and DraftKings. Kansas City is the second favorite (9-1) behind New England (8-1) at DraftKings.(To read more, click in the link in the headline above...)
