2014 NFL Draft Grade: Pittsburgh Steelers Select Stephon Tuitt


The Pittsburgh Steelers selected Stephon Tuitt with the 46th pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.

PICK GRADE

I’ll give this pick a C+. I don’t love Tuitt and think he is very overrated.

QUICK TAKE

The Steelers just picked another injury-prone defender, so I don’t think this was great. Let us know below if you think the Steelers were smart with this selection.

OUTLOOK FOR 2014

I’m very interested to see what the Steelers can put together next season. Many label them as an “older team”, but it’s no secret that they have made a very strong attempt to get younger on offense and defense. Ben Roethlisberger is going to lead this team as far as they can go, and I expect more than 2013′s eight wins next season. The first round pick of Ryan Shazier was a risky one – what do you think about this selection for Mike Tomlin’s crew in Pittsburgh.
