Cameron Heyward Joins The Steel Curtain!

The Steelers went defensive line last night with their first pick by drafting Ohio State defensive end Cameron Heyward. As a rabid Buckeye fan I can tell you that Heyward was the heart and soul of the Buckeye defense for three years. He’s a natural born leader with a motor that just won’t quit, and always comes up with the big play when the game is on the line. With Heyward, the Steelers just found their replacement for aging Aaron Smith, as well as the perfect bookend to former first rounder Ziggy Hood.

      No kidding. Heyward, Hood,Smith, Kiesel, and Casey Hampton makes for a very formidable D-line. If they can add some speed in the secondary, watch out!

      The Steelers really need to focus on the offensive line in round two. Their line has been patchwork for 5 years now. Maurkice Pouncey is already one of the best centers in the NFL, and Chris Kemeoutu (spelling?) Is close to that upper echelon of All-Pro guards. However, the rest of that line is sketchy at best.

      Thanks for adding me to your blog roll!
