Steelers in for a surprise in NFL Draft

For a team that finished 9-7 and failed to make the NFL Betting playoffs last season the Pittsburgh Steelers have plenty of areas that they can in improve upon in the upcoming NFL draft. For the past few years the needs of the NFL wagering franchise haven’t really changed much and entering this year’s NFL draft the two biggest needs are O-line and CBs.

NFL betting lines experts seem to think the Steelers are going to take a O-lineman with their first pick in this year’s NFL draft. That seems like a very reasonable choice as the Steelers once proud running games has suffered mightily in recent NFL betting seasons and the team ranks near the top of the list of QB sacks allowed nearly every NFL wagering season.

But this line of thought could be misleading and the shrewd NFL betting lines analysts would suggest that the running game is becoming passing in NFL wagering competition and that new coach Mike Tomlin doesn’t share the same passion for the ground game as former Coach Bull Cowher. And in regards to the sack issue, the sacks are more a product of Big Ben holding the ball too long trying to make plays down field in the heat of the football betting competition than poor blocking. Add to that the fact that Steelers almost never use first round picks to draft O-line and most informed football betting experts seem to think Steelers will go a different route with the first pick in the NFL draft.

CB is one of the most important positions in the professional football wagering action and the Steelers are very bad at this position. If Florida CB Joe Haden is still on the NFL draft board at the #18 pick, he’ll be a Steeler. But he’ll almost certainly be off the board and it’s more likely the second rated CB in the NFL draft, Kyle Wilson of Boise State, will be wearing a Steeler uniform in the upcoming NFL gambling season.
