Season 9, Episode 111 of The Terrible Podcast is now in the can and in this Wednesday show, Alex Kozora and I immediately talk about several things related to the Pittsburgh Steelers draft and that includes discussing a few players who were already under contract with the team that you could probably view as being big winners based on the selections the team made. The players mainly discussed are safety Marcus Allen, inside linebacker Tyler Matakevich and tight end Xavier Grimble.
Is Allen indeed being moved to a linebacker or dimebacker role in the Steelers defense? Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin certainly seemed like that would indeed be the case during the post-draft press conference. We discuss the possibility of such a move happening and talk a little about the dimebacker role in the Steelers defense in 2019.
Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert has had quite a bit to say about the team’s draft picks this year in addition to discussing cornerback Artie Burns and outside linebacker Bud Dupree. Alex and I spend quite a bit of time parsing quite a few of Colbert’s recent comments made since the draft about several players, both new and existing.
After doing a few more recent breakdowns on two of the Steelers draft picks, outside linebacker Sutton Smith and running back Benny Snell Jr., Alex and I discuss the findings that are mostly related to sack quality and explosive runs, respectively.
We move forward to start closing out the show by discussing a few comments made by Michigan defensive coordinator Don Brown after the Steelers traded up in the first-round of the 2019 NFL Draft to select inside linebacker Devin Bush.
Alex and I then proceed to answer a few listener emails we have received since the draft ended on Saturday.
As always, several other smaller talking points are mixed in throughout the show that are not highlighted here in this post.
