Thursday night, any type of defensive player is really possible for the Steelers in the first round of the draft.

The Steelers could draft an inside linebacker — only if they’re named Devin — a cornerback or even a safety with the 20th overall pick. The same approach will hold true, for the most part, for the other rounds, as well.

When they set their draft board, the base defense they likely will use to make decisions will be their “nickel” package. Drafting simply to find players for a 3-4 defense is basically out the door.

I'm Still going with BPO.

i never fully understood the player prototype philosophy behind the 3-4. i get it when it came to stopping the run, but not the pass. especially the down linemen. for instance why could they not have 4-3 tackles and defensive ends who are good pass rushers on the roster for obvious passing downs ?
for the last 30 years pretty much any down is a potential passing down.

i mean why couldn't a 6'1" ,280lb ed oliver line up in tuitts spot if he is a better pass rusher ? it's like they think a 3-4 defensive end MUST be at least 6"3" ..... Calling the Steelers defense a 3-4 scheme is pretty much obsolete 2829330259

two d-line men d tackles 290 to 300 lbs, two DE's who are OLBers, one down hill run stopper pass rusher MLBer, two OLBers who are SS, and four CBs. that is a defense I'd like to see in a two / three deep zone with man mixed in.
