So, is there a button I need to push to bring up the draft page?

I love excel. aside from checking on sleepers and risers/fallers, research is complete fantasy football is so much easier with every stat just converting to points instead of going by each individual stat category for fantasy hockey.

Steelers practice squad was announced

Offensive linemen Chris Hubbard and Joe Long

Running back Alvester Alexander

Defensive end Brian Arnfelt

Linebackers Alan Baxter and Terence Garvin

Defensive back Devin Smith

Wide receiver Justin Brown.

I'm a bit surprised McFadden and/or Hawthorne aren't on it but maybe they will be added back to the 53 man roster if Spaeth gets the designated to return tag.

Adrian Robinson (LB we traded to Eagles) was claimed by Denver.

No word on Ta'amu yet. Steelers obviously weren't going to carry a NT on the practice squad with 3 guys capable of playing NT on the 53 man roster already.

It's possible the Steelers would like to add on O-Lineman too since they usually carry 9 and only carried 8 this time. The only issue is Max played horrendous in his brief time in San Diego. People say he looked done. Maybe the Steelers picked the perfect time to move on from him. Although Guy Whimper doesn't have me beaming with confidence either.

The deceased corpse of Max Starks would still be a better lineman than a prime Guy Whimper. Worst offensive lineman in football.

so I drafted 3 guys who are not on NFL teams. No, Daryl Washington is just suspended for 4 games. Great.

Yahoo gave me an A+ for my draft

Damn, Jacksonville claimed 7 players off waivers (No Steelers). Did Garth Snow takeover as their GM?

I feel like we may all want to have some backup waivers ready in the waiver queue.

For all those in the fantasy league offers for all my players with the exception of Rodgers will be considered.

A+ draft, *****es.

In other not real things that don't matter at all...I'm in the midst of my first Madden 25 draft and the amount of PSAC players in it is hilarious. Without even trying I drafted a kid from IUP in the 4th, a kid from Shippensburg in the 5th, & a kid from Cal in the 6th. If I see a kid from Lock Haven in the next draft I'm taking him in the first round, I don't care where he's supposed to go.

edit: Slippery Rock in the 7th.

are those real people? And if so, do they get money for that? No I guess since they can't get paid for anything.

No, it's all fake. The #1 prospect in the draft was a QB from Idaho.

Missed the draft, had stuff to take care over. Raided waivers instead.

In shocking news, Ta'amu signs with Arizona!

Pretty sure if the Steelers ever folded, Arizona would trade future entry draft selections to other teams for their dispersal draft selections, just to be able to get every ex-Steeler possible.

Same here! I got stacked at WR and got Aaron Rodgers so that's all good. But man did my defenders sucks. RB's aren't reliable what so ever.

Anyone got extra RB's that needs WR's I got a plethora.

I bet Millersville is still so bad that none of their players wind up in the draft.

Zoltán Meskó in, Drew Butler out.

That's a solid upgrade at punter...the Patriots released Mesko in a financial move, apparently (they went with a UDFA who cost $900k less).
