The Pittsburgh Steelers will have to invest a top-64 draft pick on a quarterback this spring. They tried to get away with stealing Mason Rudolph from the next round of this 2018 draft and there's been little to inspire confidence that he can captain this group when Ben Roethlisberger is unavailable. Couple Roethlisberger's injury history and it is a no-brainer that the Steelers have to devote capital to this position in the forthcoming months. Do you know how crazy that is? Xavien Howard picked off his 10th overhaul of the season, something that has not been done since 2007. This league protects quarterbacks and receivers, and so it is more difficult than ever to intercept passers. Entering Week 17, the interception rate was at a post-merger low of 2.15 percent. Howard should include an All-Pro honor to his Pro Bowl honor from this season.

NFL insider notes: Optimism in diversity of coaching and GM searches, Giants and Falcons upgrades and more

With the NFL's coach and general manager hiring cycle now in full swing, there is a feeling of optimism in those early phases of the process about the hunts becoming more diverse and inclusive than anything we've seen in the last several years. It is far too preliminary to make any proclamations, however during the initial interviews for candidates not under NFL contracts, owners appear to be doing a more-than-cursory job of meeting varied candidates, and there is a growing sense among current and former NFL executives, coaching representatives, and among the candidates of color themselves who 2021 may in reality be reflective of the composition of the NFL's locker rooms.

I'd call it cautious optimism, as NFL teams begin to submit formal request slips to interview coach and GM candidates. And Rod Graves, head of the Fritz Pollard Alliance, which works together with all the NFL in the pursuit of diversity in the management and coaching positions.

"A lot of credit goes to (Commissioner) Roger Goodell and (VP of football operations) Troy Vincent for the sense of urgency that has developed about this problem over the previous 8-to-12 months."

There is not anything to champion until we see the final results of those hunts, but it seems more than lip service is being paid to The Rooney Rule, and there is a sense within the classes doing the hiring that time for words is over -- that this league has to be equitable in who gets to sit in places of power inside the sport, and, finally, just the owners themselves can alter this.

Experienced coaches such as Marvin Lewis and executives such as Rick Smith seem very poised at this point to have a legitimate chance with multiple teams.
