Let's take a quick glance at the last draft and see how the two teams fared: Steelers 2014 Rd 1 Ryan Shazier LB Rd 2 Stephon Tuitt DT Rd 3 Dri Archer RB/KR Rd 4 Matavis Bryant WR Rd 5 Shaquille Richardson CB, Wesley Johnson OL Rd 6 Jordan Zumwalt LB, McCullers DT Rd 7 Rob Blanchflower TE Patriots 2014 Rd 1 Dominique Easley DT Rd 2 Jimmy Garappolo QB Rd 4 Bryan Stork C, James White RB, Cameron Fleming OT Rd 6 John Halapio OG, Zach Moore DE, Jemea Thomas CB Rd 7 Jeremy Gallon WR/KR Who had the better draft? Tough to say. Gallon offers nearly what Archer does as a KR but we got him in the 7th. James White is probably a more complete back that we got in the 4th. Pats got the backup QB that they needed. Tuitt was taken much earlier than our pick at 62. And I believe that Easley presents more value as an impact pass-rusher. Shazier of course taken way too early for us to bite. We also got a physically talented pass rush project in Zach Moore and added more beef on the OL than the Steelers did by a factor of 3x to 1. I'd say that the Pats look to have the better overall value considering the later draft position. Matavis Bryant may be a 'sexier' pick, but Brady won't be completing many passes from his backside. The injection of size and talent on the OL was much needed. And don't forget that the Pats have turned plenty of mid-round OL into serviceable to good players. Koppen in round 5 comes to mind.
