Colbert: ‘Franchise Was Built’ On Adding Through The Draft

While the Pittsburgh Steelers haven’t exactly shied away from surrendering draft capital in recent years, it still isn’t something they prefer to do. It’s no secret how crucial the draft is to the Steelers’ business model. In his last crack at putting together a Steelers’ draft class, retiring general manager Kevin Colbert reiterated that point in an interview released on the team’s social media accounts on Tuesday.

“I think it is both,” said Colbert when asked by Steelers’ reporter Missi Matthews on if not giving up draft capital in free agency was more tradition or if it was more about the talent in the 2022 draft class.
