    Agree, the QB needy team list seems to keep growing just as it looked to be smaller a year ago... Particularly for AFC teams it is looking bleak if you don't have a franchise QB stud in place... NFC teams can get ahead of the curve (Atlanta - with Wilson or Fields at #4); Dak looking good for a huge payday.

    Final Four: Mahomes, Allen, Rogers and Brady

    Kind of obvious what drives the NFL at the end of the day

    I would expect four QBs in the top 8-10 picks

    Trading for Watson is the go for broke move

    Could Watson end up in Pittsburgh? What a nightmare that would be.

    Ironic that none of those guys were consensus level picks when taken. All had a ton of doubters....except Brady and that was because he was mostly considered irrelevant where he was drafted.

    Mahomes - 1st Round #10 - Air Raid QB's cannot succeed in the NFL.
    Allen - 1st Round #7 - Too raw and did not play against good competition.
    Rodgers - 1st Round #24 - Tedford QB's put up big college numbers but are not NFL QB's
    Brady - 6th Round #199 - whatever....cool

    8 Super Bowl wins, 6 NFL MVP's, 6 Super Bowl MVP's, 27 Pro Bowls, 7 First Team All Pro's, 5 Second Team All Pro's

    The Steelers would have to give up so much to get him that they would struggle to put a competitive team around him. If Ben retired and they traded for Watson, they'd be at the cap and unable to re-sign multiple guys, plus they'd have to give up at least their next 3 first round picks to get him.

    What would they give up?

    Not to mention they are in salary cap hell anyways.

    Exactly. Pittsburgh is looking at having to let most, if not all, of their free agents walk (or having to cut others that aren't free agents) just to get under the salary cap. I'm no cap expert, but I don't see any way they could fit his contract onto their roster on top of all the high draft picks they'd have to give up.

    Pittsburgh picks 24th this year. Very easy for any team to top it even with salary concerns factoring in.

    Haskins signs with the Steelers. Anyone want to bet he will be the comeback story of the year? If the Bengals signed him though it would be adding more character problems:

    Also Nick Sirianni to the Eagles:

    This is interesting. Tells me Pittsburgh is fully aware life after Ben is coming soon but also makes me think they have little interest in Rudolph as the QB after Ben hangs it up. My money would be on a QB different from Rudolph or Haskins will be the future Steelers QB.

    Bengals will be the comeback story, along with Burrow, when they win the Division.
