Penn State’s Miles Sanders carries through the Pitt defense during the first quarter Saturday, Sept. 8, 2018, at Heinz Field.

It’s NFL Draft Day!

DraftWire’s Luke Easterling joins us for our Thursday Sided.co podcast. He scouted the potential picks on defense Wednesday. Now he previews the offense.

Easterling and I talk about when in the draft it will make sense for the Steelers to think offense. Then we kick around some names the Steelers may try to obtain to offset the loss of Antonio Brown at wide receiver. Do the Steelers have an interest in either Ole Miss receiver or the Iowa tight ends?

Luke also attempts to figure out where the quarterbacks go. That could help the Steelers get a good cornerback or inside linebacker. The same goes for the offensive line, too.

And we analyze the chances of Penn State’s Miles Sanders winding up in Pittsburgh. He’s a good running back. And he has local ties coming from Woodland Hills. But there may be better players at that position for the Black and Gold.

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.
