    Absolutely, and I'd be shocked if there was a coordinator who could do more with that sad group the Steelers fielded on D last year.

    From that list I'd take Dupree. He's a bit more risky than I prefer, but the combination of size and speed make him really intriguing. He could have a bit of a learning curve, playing mostly as a...

    Ruthless, I agree with you. Unfortunately, this seems to be a year where the value at CB doesn't meet the need. Fortunately, however, there seem to be a ton of pass rushers.

    I'd love to see the list of players that didn't develop in Pittsburgh that did develop elsewhere.

    Given the lack of talent on the defense the last 2 years, mediocrity is actually a significant accomplishment. Look at the defense last year and compare it to the defense from 2005. Or 2009. Who,...

    I've read that too. I'm not a big Harold fan - I could live with him in the second but I don't care for him in the first.

    My point is that Jarvis Jones and Timmons have a relatively similar body of work through 2 years. Ovi will drink Timmons' bathwater but he repeatedly points to Jones as a problem.

    Jarvis Jones after 2 years: 21 games, 11 starts, 3 sacks, 4 PD, 1 FF, 69 tackles
    Lawrence Timmons after 2 years: 32 games, 2 starts, 1 INT, 5 sacks, 3 PD, 1 FF, 77 tackles

    Jones got off to a slow start, played well, and got hurt. A wrist injury is absolutely going to hamper a pass rusher. Shazier was hurt early on, too. Neither guy is a sure thing to succeed, but...

    I really like them bringing back James Harrison. Part of this is simply being a fan of Harrison. The other side of this is that Harrison is great depth and still a guy that is able to contribute. ...

    Yeah, the 6th and 7th have yielded guys like AB, Beachum and McCullers. If it was a 5th, then it would be much more disposable...

    I'd be interested to see if Terrell Troup is healthy. He's the only name that pops off that list.

    I saw that article on the site that shall not be named. As it stands now, the Steelers might get a 6 or a 7 for McCain. I haven't looked at the numbers closely enough. If there was a possibility...

    Carrington makes a ton of sense. The Steelers had interest last year and he should be at or near the minimum this year. It's a no risk signing.

    I would have liked to see the Steelers address the secondary already (Moore in particularly seemed a reasonably priced option) but I'd rather the Steelers not overspend on a mediocre talent.

    Robinson's deal was pretty reasonable, but Sterling Moore at $1.5 million seems very reasonable. Maybe the Steelers only offered the vet minimum or didn't see him as an upgrade over Blake, but I'd...

    Watching a bit of Dupree he is definitely slow to react and slow off the ball. McCullers also had that same problem. I'm not sure what to make of Dupree at this point. Dale Lolley's latest mock...

    My though on Wilson is that he could be in for a McCain type bounceback season in the slot. He'd be competition for Webb as the #4/#5 CB, nothing more.

    If not Sterling Moore, I'd kick the tires on Kyle Wilson. He was not good this year but was very good (at least according to PFF, for whatever that is worth) in the slot in 2013. Recent first round...

    I'd like to see the Eagles end up with Sanchez and Tebow as their QB tandem. Because it worked so well for the Jets.

    Moore was non-tendered as an RFA. If the team that knew him best wasn't willing to pay him $1.5 million, I'd hope that the Steelers are viewing this as a vet minimum type signing, or close to it. ...

    Yeah, I'm actually glad that they are taking a decent hit this year, since they still have room to sign a FA (if there is anybody out there) without impacting future years too significantly.
