During this quite period, I am going to take some time to grade the 2008 NFL Draft. We will look at the Pittsburgh Steelers draft today.
Round 1 Pick 23: Rashard Mendenhall, RB, Illinois: This was by far the best pick of this draft. Mendenhall has been exactly what the Steelers needed as one of the best RB’s in the league. He has been a workhorse and is coming off his best season ever. His rookie season was ended as soon as it began but since then he has only gotten better. His carrying has improved and his vision has as well. Pick Grade: A
