Pittsburgh Steelers (http://www.planetsteelers.com/teams/pittsburghsteelers/profile?team=PIT)

1 (24) Dont'a Hightower, LB, Alabama

The age of Pittsburgh's defense might push them toward a versatile player like Hightower, who can play outside or inside. The Steelers aren't afraid to build depth at a position instead of filling what people perceive as their more immediate need.

2 (56) Amini Silatolu, OG, Midwestern State

The Steelers found it difficult to suit up five healthy linemen at times last season.

3 (86) Isaiah Pead, RB, Cincinnati

Adds speed to the team's rushing offense, which lacks a breakaway threat when Rashard Mendenhall (http://www.planetsteelers.com/players/rashardmendenhall/profile?id=MEN393702) is out of the game.

4 (119) Josh Chapman, DT, Alabama

Plug him in at nose tackle for the next few years after Casey Hampton (http://www.planetsteelers.com/players/caseyhampton/profile?id=HAM671173) retires.

5 (159) Keith Tandy, CB, West Virginia
6 (193) Lamar Holmes, OT, Southern Miss
7 (231) Jeff Fuller, WR, Texas A&M
7 (240) Brandon Lindsey, OLB, Pittsburgh
7 (246) Eddie Pleasant, SS, Oregon
7 (248) Markus Kuhn, DT, North Carolina State

It's a little weak on the OL for my liking. Don't see any OL who can push Legursky or Foster to the bench this season. IMO that is critical for improvement. If not it means another 40+ sacks for Ben.

I really like the Jeff Fuller and Marcus Kuhn picks late.

Silatalou will be a Week 1 starter.

I would be really happy with this draft. Not happy spending 1st Rd on ILB but i like rest of the picks.

I like Amini Silotolu, Lamar Holmes, Jeff Fuller and Tandy.

I would not mind Steelers drafting him in Rd 1. I am not sure he will be available at 2.56

I'd be tickled pink with this draft. For some reason, I really don't want Hightower going to the Rats. I think it would haunt us.

I hope so. You are the expert and I know he has potential, but we need to get fixed at Guard immediately not one or two years down the road.

The NFLN crew had him going to the Bengals a couple picks in front of us. :bungalssuck

People talk about the Ravens possibly trading up ahead of us to get Hightower. That would not concern me. What would concern me is if the Ravens traded up ahead of us to get Poe (and not just because Edward Allen was from Baltimore, which is why they are called the Ravens in the first place). Imagine a front 3 of Poe-Cody-Ngata. If we had Alan Faneca in his prime, Dermontti Dawson in his prime, and John Hannah in his prime, we'd have trouble getting any kind of push against those guys (and now think of what they would do against Doug Legursky, a seemingly-always-hobbled-of-late Maurkice Pouncey, and Ramon Foster...*shudder*).

His picks after the 5th don't do anything for me at all, there are much better players available at those spots.

I'd be good with that. Not thrilled with hightower in coverage, but I like the rest of his game.

We got fixed at guard... Immediately :D
