First day of Draft is over...

Posted by Dan on Apr 27, 2003 @ 8:17 AM

The Steelers traded up to the 16th spot yesterday to get Troy Polamalu (USC)—they gave up a 3rd and 6th round pick to move from the 27th to the 16th spot. He definitely was a player at need, and seems like a real monster. The Steelers have proven that they know how to draft, so I trust them. They also picked up Alonzo Jackson (Florida State) a DE end whom they plan on converting to a outside linebacker. From the scouting reports, he seems a little slow for the outside linebacker position—especially with players like Boss Bailey still out there—but like I said, I trust the Steelers scouting. They've definitely found more than there share of gems in the past, and I don't see the trend ending any time soon.
