After all of the mock draft predictions, controversy, and countless surprises, the 2010 NFL Draft has come to a screeching halt. But now the predictions, speculation, and signings to fill the rosters begin as die-hard football fans swarm to the latest news and information on their designated teams. In review of all the action that took place during the prolong three day draft event, I have put together a list of two winners, two losers, and two teams that fell somewhere in between in the AFC conference.   Loser: Pittsburgh Steelers On paper, the Steelers did a pretty bang up job, acquiring a pair of solid speedsters at the receiver position, improving the offensive line with Maurkice [...] Continue reading → | , , , ,
