Ernie Stautner Jersey , 4-step plan for fixing the Pittsburgh Steelers There are a number of things — very pronounced, blindingly-evident things — that have prevented the Steelers from coalescing into the veritable Super Bowl contender they ostensibly were in the preseason. The defense is trash, for one thing, and the particulars of its trashiness are manifold: the secondary couldn’t stop a high school team from racking up hundreds of yards, and the run-defense isn’t much better — allowing opposing rushers to gain a very meaty 4.2 yards per carry. They’re currently ranked fourth in the NFL with 13 sacks, but it’s important to note that more than half of those sacks came in a single game against Tyrod Taylor. If Taylor were standing on the surface of the moon while a malevolent spaceman looked on — withholding oxygen until Taylor completed a pass — Taylor would rather stand there and asphyxiate than force a throw into coverage. At Heinz Field, where they’re currently 0-2, the Steelers have amassed only three sacks.Slows starts by the Steelers are not unprecedented. They lost four games in a row on the way to a 4-5 start in 2016, a season in which they advanced to the AFC Championship Game (where they were summarily demolished by the vile New England Patriots, but that’s neither here nor there). And last season — which saw them pace the AFC with 13 victories — it was a 30-9 home loss to Jacksonville in Week 5 that facilitated an overwhelming surfeit of pessimistic and defeatist takes. The general thinking is that this is all a natural part of the proceedings and they’ll figure it out eventually, probably when the weather starts to get cold. But this year feels different, gloomier, more panicky, more wow they-might-not-really-have-the-capacity-to-turn-this-thing-around. Last year, for instance, it was Ben Roethlisberger, of all people, who contributed to the Steelers’ bad start. In the aforementioned home loss to the Jaguars, he famously threw five bad interceptions and subsequently claimed post-game that perhaps he didn’t have it anymore. The defense, meanwhile, particularly the secondary (of all units), enabled the Steelers to win some games they maybe shouldn’t have won. It was a strange reality. But generally speaking, the consensus pointed to the eventuality that hey, there’s no way in Hell the secondary is actually this good Joe Haden Jersey , and that Ben would eventually stop whining so much and return to at least a Wal-Mart brand version of what he’d been during the previous 12 seasons. But there don’t seem to be any such assurances this season, which is why I’m gonna fire up the conjecture machine and craft an admittedly simplistic and very self-evident 4-point plan for returning this iteration of the Steelers to glory.Step 1: Be preparedIn their past three games at Heinz Field dating back to last season, the Steelers have spotted the opposition 56 points in the first quarter. Whether this is the result of the coaching staff failing to get the team game-ready, or the result of personnel not holding themselves accountable for figuring out things out (probably it’s a mixture of both), the fact that the Steelers have developed a penchant for coming out of the locker room flat is putting them in positions to lose. Step 2: Stick to the game-planOnce the Steelers have demonstrated their ability to prevent opponents from nabbing multi-possession leads before the ushers are done scanning tickets, they can implement offensive schematics more multifaceted in nature, as it’s impossible to commit to running the ball when there’s four minutes left in the first quarter and you’re already staring down the barrel of a 21-0 deficit. A cogent, well-balanced offensive game plan that features an omnivorous buffet of play-action, West Coast, stretch/toss plays, between-the-tackles runs, and deep passes should not only increase Pittsburgh’s scoring output and general offensive vitality, but should also better enable them to control time-of-possession and give the defense some much-needed downtime. Step 3: Experiment with the defenseThere’s no point asking the Steelers to “fix” the defense, as doing so would have the same effect as callously telling someone living on the street to get a job — they simply don’t have the wherewithal to promote such a miraculous turnaround. Pittsburgh is home to perhaps theNFL’s worst stable of defensive backs — which is a shame, because there are some talented names among these ranks. Their linebackers are good at stopping the run and proficient at rushing the passer, but not much else. So why not get cute with it? Try Sean Davis out at cornerback. Move Terrell Edmunds to linebacker. Play with three safeties. Sign Markus Wheaton and let him play cornerback. Grab some random DB off the street. Tyvon Branch is apparently a person who used to play safety. Jeremy Lane once did a convincing impression of a starting cornerback in Seattle. I don’t know — goof around with the schematics a bit or mix the personnel up a bit — but please don’t let Tyler Matakevich start in actual games of consequence. Do something, Keith Butler, please!Step 4: Stay positiveLe’Veon Bell hopefully is set to report back in Week 7, which would make him eligible to play in the Steelers’ Week 8 home match against Cleveland. Losing to Atlanta or Cincinnati (the odds of them losing at least one of these games are very, very high) honestly isn’t gonna totally sink their postseason hopes (but losing both might, so yikes). So if the Steelers can simply tread water and enter the bye at like 2-3-1 (or 3-2-1), I think returning an All-Pro offensive dynamo to the fray will be an encouraging development. But regardless of when or if Bell returns and what version of Bell the Steelers get, Pittsburgh will contend so long as Ben Roethlisberger is doing his thing, especially if JuJu Smith-Schuster James Washington Jersey , Antonio Brown, Vance McDonald, and the rest of the offense continue to assist Ben in doing his thing. There’s also the issue of Mike Tomlin, who is seen below:He’s still never had a losing season, guys. Have some faith in the man.

Set to begin on Thursday, April 25 at 8 p.m. ET, the three day event will be held in Nashville this year, with the Arizona Cardinals effectively already on the clock.A total of 254 picks will be made through seven rounds, as per the following schedule:Round 1:Date: Thursday, April 25Time: 8:00 p.m. ETTV: NFL Network, ESPN, ABC, ESPN Deportes and Sky (U.K)Online: NFL.com, FuboTV, NFL.com/Watch Stephon Tuitt Jersey , WatchESPNRadio: SiriusXM Radio, ESPN Radio, Steelers Nation RadioTrack the picks: NFL.com draft tracker, ESPN draft tracker, CBS draft trackerEach team is allowed 10 minutes to make their selection.Iconic former Pittsburgh defensive lineman Joe Greene will announce the Steelers first-round selection.

No team has less picks than the five selections the Seattle Seahawks hold, even after their trade of defensive end Frank Clark to the Kansas City Chiefs on Tuesday, a feat also matched by the Chicago Bears. The Bears are also one of five teams without a first-round selection this year, along with the Dallas Cowboys, New Orleans Saints, Cleveland Browns and Chiefs. The Oakland Raiders, Green Bay Packers, Seahawks and Giants are the only teams with multiple picks in round one.Steelers draft picks in each round:Pittsburgh holds 10 selections heading into the draft after receiving a third and fifth round picks from the Raiders for Antonio Brown and a sixth-round pick from the Cardinals for Marcus Gilbert this offseason. The Steelers also traded their seventh round selection to the Cleveland Browns as part of a deal for Sammie Coates that saw them receive a sixth round draft pick in 2018. Their seventh round selection this year comes from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as part of the trade for J.J. Wilcox in 2017. The Steelers extra sixth-round pick (No.175 overall) comes as part of the trade for Ryan Switzer in 2018 that saw them send their 2019 fifth-round pick to Oakland in return. That selection has since been traded by the Raiders to the Buffalo Bills.Who will the Steelers draft?The expert opinion appears to be split between Michigan Linebacker Devin Bush, LSU cornerback Greedy Williams and Washington cornerback Byron Murphy in round one at the time of writing. The Steelers have hosted their full allowance of 30 pre-draft visitors over the past month, with Murphy one of the few first-round prospects the team has welcomed to the Steel City this offseason.Steelers prospect interest and pro days attended After Kevin Colbert told reporters that the Steelers had met with around 210 players over the past few months at all-star games, the NFL Scouting Combine, their pro day and at team facilities during a press conference on Monday, we can only speculate about many of these names. However, since we have been tracking the Steelers prospects interest back in January, we have still managed to identify over a third of the players the team has met with, based on media reports. If past history is any guide, it should be expected that Pittsburgh will be selecting at least one linebacker and another wide receiver, based on the trends dating back to 2007.
