Here’s your Steelers Morning Huddle for Tuesday, April 7th.

Kaboly’s Mock

The two biggest positions of need for the Steelers are no secret by any means. Mark Kaboly of the Trib explains that while cornerback is quite possibly the most coveted position; the Steelers will not take a corner in the first round unless there is still a top-rated one available at the 22nd pick. Their most likely move at that point would be to go with the best available pass rusher. His mock breaks down as follows:

"Round 1 (22) Bud Dupree, OLB, KentuckyRound 2 (56) Alex Carter, CB, StanfordRound 3 (87) D’Joun Smith, CB Florida AtlanticRound 4 (121) Derron Smith, S, Fresno StateRound 5 (160) Jesse James, TE, Penn StateRound 6 (199) Phillip Dorsett, WR, Miami (FL)Round 6 (212) (Compensatory Pick) Sean Hickey, OL, SyracuseRound 7 (239) Karlos Williams, RB, Florida State"

Josh Harris’ Huge Offseason

This time last year Josh Harris was a running back draft prospect out of Wake Forrest preparing for the NFL Draft. Teresa Varley explains that while he wasn’t happy that he went undrafted he was happy with how things ended up with him making it from the Steelers practice squad to the active roster by November of last season.

Still, with the addition of DeAngelo Williams and the Steelers sticking to their guns with Dri Archer, Harris doesn’t have any guarantees going forward. He’s working his ass off to make sure that he doesn’t give the coaching staff a reason to take him off of the active roster. And he’s doing it the smart way, by modeling his game after Le’Veon Bell’s.

"“I just have to make sure I stay in shape, I want to make sure I am healthy, that my legs can hold up. I want to work on things like pass rush. That’s the one thing I saw from Le’Veon. He is a great guy. He can be in the backfield and go out for routes; he can be in the slot and have routes. That is one thing I am going to make sure I can put some time in on.” – Josh Harris"

Steelers were robbed

So the NFL Network played into the March Madness Bracketology by voting on the greatest game in NFL history. And because we are a society that only lives in the moment and the last thing we’ve seen is always the greatest thing we’ve seen Super Bowl XLIX was voted the greatest game over the Steelers win over the Arizona Cardinals in Super Bowl XLIII.

So let’s pick a game that will mostly be remembered for one of the most questionable and debatable coaching calls in NFL history as opposed to a game that featured two of the greatest plays in Super Bowl history. Makes sense, right? Jagoffs.
