Draft History



Two positions the Steelers neglected in the draft are tight end and inside linebacker. GM Kevin Colbert addressed both topics: *Steelers would have added an ILB if it made sense but "we're very confident in Vince (Williams)," Colbert said. He'll be the favorite to start. The Steelers also have Tyler Matakevich, L.J. Fort and Steven Johnson for depth. *Colbert acknowledged the Steelers would have drafted a tight end in the fifth round "if there was one available." Apparently the right player wasn't.
