what is our most urgent need in the draft?

Secondary... but that usually means another 2 years before seeing the field due to the playbook. DL maybe. Whatever way we go I think it won't be an instant plug and play.

Just looking at the stats- Steelers gave up the equal highest amount of sacks this year- 50.

Yes, Ben is responsible for a lot of that, but 50 is very high- AGAIN.

Still, the running game improved...so is OL a priority?

Or DT?

Or FS?

Or CB?

Should be better than 20. As many teams as we depended on losing to get to the final 12, I would think that we have a better draft order than a few of them. Maybe 17?

Here's the OL stats for the Steelers for this season.

What do you guys make of this- is Chadman reading it right? The Steelers run MUCH better to the right side of the line?

And while we are #1 in sacks allowed, the Steelers are 16 in QB hits allowed- good or bad?

And the PASS DEFENSE stats are interesting- for all our belly aching, they are not too bad.

Only thing missing appears to be PLAYMAKERS.

Perhaps the players the Steelers have are ok, they just need one or two new guys that have the ability to take the ball away?

If Terrance Cody is there when we draft it's a no brainer. If he isn't it gets a bit more complex. We will draft BPA from ILB, FS, DB, and DE.

Can we draft on offensive coordinator?

We don't to draft a CB, Ike had an INT today.... :roll:

Run Defense stats are, not surprisingly, good- with very few big plays allowed.


Is Casey Hampton worth re-signing? Absolutely...

unless we get a beast of an OL pick I can't see why we would go OL first.. Kemo is hurt and will return..

Ben will always take sacks though..

Of course- the case AGAINST the Steelers DB's is that the Steelers had 47 sacks, so getting pressure on the QB, forcing the QB to rush his throws, is not a problem....

Hmm.....if Terrence Cody IS available at the Steelers pick- it'd be hard to not pick him. Not much in the way of PLAYMAKING CB's worthy of selection early- but FS has a whole bunch of options.

That said, the FS's should be strong into the 2nd round.

If Cody IS gone- OT?

I'd go CB 1st round, then RT or C 2nd round and would continue with the Secondary and OL all the way through, but that is just me.

Can we draft Darelle Revis, or someone who plays like his clone at D-back or safety? Otherwise, we need to get younger and stronger on the D-Line, and maybe a top-shelf big ugly at guard and center would help.


Solutions do not lie exclusively with the draft. One challenge ahead is to develop to the potential already on our roster (Burnett, Foster, Harris, Hills, Hood, Mundy, Lewis, Summers, Sweed, Timmons).

And maybe a kep free agent or two.
