Steelers Draft Class Bearing Fruit

Here's a nice summary of what's happened so far this year for the Steelers' 2010 draft class. As usual, the Steelers have done well for themselves with great drafting. First-rounder Maurkice Pouncey has already been named to Peter King's midseason all-pro team. Second-rounder Jason Worilds looks like he'll be a good player once he gets a chance to start. And third-rounder Emmanuel Sanders is already a threat on special teams and has begun to emerge as a target for Ben Roethlisberger, although he has already fumbled twice. The Steelers already lost fourth-rounder Thaddeus Gibson, which is a shame, but they should recoup some value from their many picks in the fifth and sixth rounds. A draft like this shows how the Steelers stay so competitive - because they draft so well, they always have someone to fill in when one of their veterans falters.
