NFL Draft

Steelers GM says this is the deepest draft class in 30 years

One team that really loves this draft class is the Pittsburgh Steelers.  Kevin Colbert the GM of the Steelers called this year’s draft “as deep across the board as any draft I’ve seen in 30 years,” Colbert added that some underclassmen simply aren’t ready for the NFL.

This year over 98 underclassmen entered the NFL Draft, and quite a bit of them were not invited to the NFL Scouting Combine.

As for the depth that will be drafted, however, NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah sees plenty, as well. So deep, in fact, that immediate starters will still be available on day three of the draft, with about the first 100 picks off the board.

“Last year’s draft lacked star power at the top, but it was very deep. This year’s crop has both star power and depth,” Jeremiah said. “There will be a lot of first-year starters selected in the fourth and fifth round.”
