Apparently not everyone was enamored with the Steelers’ draft.

In a segment titled NFL Draft Grades, the NFL Network’s Daniel Jeremiah and Bucky Brooks gave the Steelers a C+ for their effort.

Yet, they still had plenty of superlatives for the franchise.

“Mike Tomlin was intent on make sure he cleaned out the locker room,” Brooks said as he rated the Steelers’ picks.

Brooks blessed the team’s “aggressive move” to grab Devin Bush in the first round, calling him a “sideline-to-sideline playmaker.”

He dubbed running back Benny Snell a “carbon copy of James Conner.”

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
