Yesterday the Browns made a move to add Matt Kalil. Today, we are faced with yet ANOTHER trade, this time the Steelers (led by Rcoon1307) are moving up. They had to fork over their 1st, 2nd and 5th round picks this year along with a 1st and 3rd next year to make the deal. Hardly chump change. Who is worth that much to them? Let's see:
Analysis after the jump.
While I completely disagree with Rcoon1307 on whether or not Rashard Mendenhall isn't doing very well (over 1000 yards receiving and rushing on less then 250 touches with 9 touchdowns? How is that bad!), adding Trent Richardson will create a monster tandem (when Mendenhall returns later in the year) that is surely "old Steeler Football".
Couple that with the fact that the Steelers already have a potent passing attack? The Steelers will have one very good offense. Very good. Is it worth it to give up all those picks? I'd think not, but of course, I'm not the one in charge of the Steelers. They now have top talent all over the offense.
The fifth pick has come and gone. If you missed any of the previous picks, or want to see what trades have been made so far, check out the full schedule.
