I just want to understand from your view why no D-line picks at all in the draft (ok 7th round pick hasn't been selected yet)?

Besides Ziggy I see it as old and frail--Again and Again we have seen when Aaron Smith is out there is a dropoff.

Is there any reason in your eyes that we selected 3 LB's and 0 DL?

thanks,

I wanted us to grab another DE. I suppose it wasn't a dire need and BPA was never a DE.

Kiesel, Hampton, Smith
Hood, Hoke, Harris

I guess six is good? Maybe McClendon as well?

would have love an NT, but, not a reach for one, consider Hoke is there...

If you factor in BMac as a 5th rounder, this looks to be an outstanding draft.

My guess is that the Steelers think Harris can be a player. If so, then you really don't need to draft a DL high in this draft. My only defensive concern is at safety. I am not sure Allen is good enough as the third safety. I was really hoping to see a safety drafted high. Obviously the Steelers viewed getting younger at LB as a more immediate need.

and they must be happy with Will Allen and Ryan Mundy...

maybe Keenan Lewis is moving to safety now that we've acquired B-Mac again?
