Steelers GM Kevin Colbert met with the media on Monday prior to the NFL Draft this Thursday and one of the things he discussed was whether or not the team could draft a quarterback in the first round.

According to Colbert, the door isn't closed on that possibility.  For more on Colbert's pre-draft meeting with the media, click here.

The Starkey and Mueller Show reacted to that news.

Chris asked Joe if he really believes the Steelers will draft a QB 28th overall that they think could be their guy for the next 15 years.

"The response to that is, do they think Lamar Jackson or Mason Rudolph is their 15-year guy, because those are the guys that will be available."

Chris says he thinks Lamar Jackson could be a franchise QB, but he won't be available, and he doesn't like Rudolph at that spot.

Chris also says he gives it about a "5-percent" chance of happening that they take a QB in the first round.
