Football 2 the MAX: NFL Draft 2017: Round 1 Reactions

Round 1 of the NFL Draft 2017 has just finished. Sean Garmer, Gary Vaughan and Randy Isbelle gather to give their thoughts on what happened.

What do they think about all the trades for the supposedly lackluster quarterbacks? Who has the best spot? Could one of them start in year one?

The guys also look at what all the teams did in Round 1. Who had the best pick, or picks? Who’s setup well for the next couple of rounds? Did they like what the Cleveland Browns and San Francisco 49ers decided in the first round?

Finally, they go over their mock draft and discuss some of the picks they nailed. Some they were way off and some that were close.


The Last Word on Steelers Podcast Episode 6: Overrated, Underrated and Sleepers

In episode six of the Last Word on Steelers Podcast we focus on nine prospects a piece. Three that are over-rated, three that are under-rated, and three that are sleepers. Not all of these players are necessarily being associated with the Steelers prior to the draft, although some do have visits to Steelers headquarters scheduled. Things can quickly change at the draft, especially if one of these players becomes the best available player at their position or is drafted too early by a team that thinks very highly of the prospect. Some of the players discussed are Kareem Hunt, Tim Williams, Budda Baker, Brad Kaaya, Marlon Humphrey, Montravius Adams, Ryan Anderson, Teez Tabor, Patrick Mahomes II, Derek Rivers, Dwuane Smoot, Nico Siragusa Tanzel Smart, Connor Harris and more! Check out for exclusive content.

This will give us the last hints as to the level of interest teams have in their various prospects.We would love to hear Steelers Nation’s input!
