    I was very surprised to see the Steelers take Watt with their #1 pick.

    Tomlin probably wanted Reuben Foster, just like he took Jason Worilds over Sean Lee several years ago.

    I bet Watt ends up being better than Foster.

    Anyway, let's hope for the best for Watt.

    And I hope Chickillo and Matakevich are both on the roster next season.

    I think Watt was an excellent pick for the Steelers. The Steelers have struck out with black linebackers in the past but Watt looks like a safe bet to be a quality starter.

    Matakevich is a good player and expecially suited for a 3-4. It wouldn't surprise me if he ends up being a starter.

    It's possible the Steelers end up with 3 white starters at linebacker, Chickillo, Matakevich and Watt.

    Awesome to see all the hard work for TJ pay off him being a 1st round pick to a team with great History!!

    Of course when there is a chance to grab Cooper Kupp, they pass for JSS......Van Slyke, don't forget the Steelers also passed on local hero Puz and got Timmons instead....Timmons was a pretty solid pick, but.........
