The identity of that team has always been tied up in its linebackers.
However, J.J. Watt also posted a tweet with a possibly more ominous tone, one that referred to the fact that his Texans and the Steelers are set to square off on December 25.
The Steelers managed to bolster the defense yet again with pass-rusher T.J. Watt and corner Cameron Sutton while getting Roethlisberger more help.
Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert said Wisconsin coach Paul Chryst - who previously coached at Pitt - reached out to the Steelers and asked them to gauge Watt's potential as an early entrant in the draft. "I think that will be really cool and a weird day for me".
Conner was ACC Player of the Year in 2014 and finished second in rushing all-time at the school, behind only Tony Dorsett. But LBs were a big part of the Steelers ethos back then, too. Not even Holba could believe the Steelers called on draft day. The franchise has had 17 linebacker Pro Bowlers, by far the most of any position.
The time to emerge from it will begin on Friday when he arrives in Pittsburgh, poses in a black-and-yellow jersey and tries to live up to the legacy of both the name on the front and the name on the back. Watt can develop into an eventual replacement for James Harrison.

Thanks to their okay draft, the Steelers remain playoff contenders every year, but don't have enough to get past the Patriots in the AFC. Bad!
Finally, as a sophomore, he finally got onto the field at Wisconsin following a switch to outside linebacker.
This was the first time the Steelers selected a Pitt Panther since cornerback Hank Poteat in the 3rd round. There aren't many good defensive lineman on the Steelers that can spell Heyward or Tuitt roster, who play 80 percent of snaps. Is Watt one of those?
The Steelers have a few other outside linebackers who are interesting but flawed. By last fall he was a linchpin on one a team that went 11-3 and beat Western Michigan in the Cotton Bowl. Dupree's still developing and has had injury problems. They didn't make headlines by picking Wisconsin linebacker T.J. Watt with the 30th selection. Like his brothers, he has a strong work ethic which showed in him rapidly improving to the point UW wanted to get him on the field in 2015.
