A New Beginning in Pittsburgh
The Pittsburgh Steelers have long been known for their defense via the legacy of the Steel Curtain defense of the 1970's which brought in 4 Lombardi trophies.
Today, Pittsburgh is known more for its offensive prowess and playmakers whom can simply dominate a football game with their play-making abilities. However Pittsburgh's defensive lost one of the long-time best defensive play-makers in Polamolu.
Enter now Bud Dupree, a 6'3" , 270lbs from the University of Kentucky. The Pittsburgh Steelers surely did not think Dupree would be available by the time their first round pick was up, but there he was and they drafted him.
"WOW, talk about a gift"! This guy could be an elite pass rusher in the league. The knock on him is not explosive off the ball but Bud seems to be crafty and never gives up on a play as evidienced by the QB's I saw him run down from the backside in college. Bud even mentioned that he admires the work ethic of James Harrison. If he follows his lead and stays healthy, Pittsburgh could be headed to another Lombardi trophy.
