Holy shit they actually pulled it off. The conservative, old school, low risk, high reward Steelers threw their nuts on the table and rolled the dice on one of the top players in the NFL draft.
Not since Santonio Wake N’ Bake Holmes has Pittsburgh traded up to make a pick. To give you an idea of how long ago that was, it was around the time Ben wrecked his motorcycle. Yeah….. So this move it a big one.
Normally I try to stay away from Bushes on the internet, but I’d be lying if I said this dudes highlight tape didn’t make it wiggle just a tad.
And I don’t want to hear shit about how much we gave up. We just extended a 37 year old QB. We will worry about the future another season. If the Steelers wanted to have a shot at winning now, this was the type of player they needed. Shazier 2.0. Maybe not as talented overall, but close enough.
While they might not have a second round pick, the early third rounder we got for Big Chest is good enough where you can find a sneaky talented DB. After that I am guessing they use the other third rounder on a receiver. To be honest, I don’t care right now. This dude has the makings of a true impact player.
Goodbye Vince Williams. Hello solid defense.
Here we go Steelers, here we go!
