Steelers | Will not shy away from prospects with character issues

Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert said the team will not shy away from draft prospects with character issues even though 2012 draft picks RB Chris Rainey and DT Alameda Ta'amu were arrested during the season. "No, I think that is unrealistic because a lot of the guys in the draft pool do have character challenges. It is up to us to assess that and determine if we want to take the risk. If we do, we have to be ready not only if the player does well but the consequences if it doesn't work," Colbert said.
