    I think DHB has a role as a WR that could be huge for us this year. His speed alone grabs a CB's attention--once he runs by a few in single coverage early in the season the opposing teams safeties...

    All three will make the team and will be major contributors in 2-3 years. Our D is changing, and both Feeney and Matakevich fit. Feeney will become our D. Buchannon (of the Cards) in passing...

    I think predicting a players success (or failure) in our defense prematurely is a mistake. From what I saw from Butler last year, he is his own DC, and he is different than LeBeau in a few ways: he...

    Yes, I like this. Dream draft:

    1(31) K. Joseph-SS. W. Allen gone, Shamarko needs to be gone. Like Golden, but...
    2(58) K. Fuller-CB. Falls this far because of the injury. 1st Round talent but...

    The Steelers backups often surprise us ( I remember the groaning about taking up PS space with Hoke). Let's hope McCullers can surprise or we get someone in the draft who is up to the task in year...

    Hard to say. Because of their approach this offseason (and I'm not criticizing it, necessarily), the Steelers could really use a DL (capable of playing multiple DL positions), a CB and probably two...

    Count me among those that advocated for bringing Knighton aboard. He's a true NT, but he would have locked down his 20-30 snaps a game, helping us get to 2nd and 3rd and longs. Then its up to the...

    I wouldn't be "concerned" at all if the Steelers picked a CB that was "a great player early on"; I'd be ecstatic. 5 years of great play from CB would be awesome, especially since that coincides...

    Ruthless, I would be perfectly happy if the draft turned out that way, and I think you're reasoning in all this is sound. However, I am still an advocate, because of the advancing years of Ben and...

    Ruthless, I'd take your draft and signing Harrison, too as a good option. Throw in Weddle and I'm sold. Your projected trades are aggressive (and un-Steeler like), but I really worry that the...

    The Fix

    I think most people on this board agree that we have a few years left of getting number 7 with Ben, but the clock is clearly ticking. Although our D played better at the end of the year, it needs to...

    I too would love to land Berry, but I don't think it's very realistic, either. However, the Chiefs do have a lot of big name FA's and they'll only be able to keep so many. Imagine the Steelers...

    I like getting more picks, but the CB talent after Fuller and Apple drops off dramatically. Trading down may take away that opportunity land either one of them. That said, if your draft played out,...

    I absolutely believe a good TE (doesn't even have to be special)can alleviate red zone problems, but in our case, I think we have plenty of red zone weapons. I personally think our red zone problem...

    I may be in minority, but I think a little more time to get comfortable in the offense, Jesse James can be our next Heath Miller. I liked what little I saw of him this year and I saw him in on a few...

    Also, although he had some issues with drops in college, he was outstanding at making tough, contested grabs, something some of receivers are not particularly good at. His ability to high-point the...

    Agreed. 25 can be a "no-man's" spot if you are looking narrowly. The elite CB's are gone, and you may be over-drafting a safety (although the best ones will likely still be available--Cash, Kearse,...

    On offense, I doubt we acquire an FA's, but keep our own (except Adams). Beachum chose a bad year to get hurt (contract year), so I doubt he sees a big payday and will sign a one-year prove-it with...

    I think the mention of Weddle is spot on, and this rumor has floated elsewhere on other football sites. Weddle is getting somewhat long in the tooth and won't command a big (or long) contract, and...

    Diggy was my favorite edge-guy coming into this draft, and I see the urge to pile up on edge-rushers if one of these guys drops to us, but I think BPA often takes a backseat (even for the Steelers)...

    True. No one knows for sure what position Rowe will play(CB or FS). Can't take guy like that in the 1st, but a guy that may work at either position, both of which we need, in the 2nd, awesome. I...

    Yeah, I really think OO is a great fit with the Steelers--imagine getting him and one of the top 3 CBs? That would be a real coup.

    PJ Williams also seems to not fit our scheme (or at least what our scheme was under LeBeau), in that he seems really good at man but not at other schemes. I don't see the Steelers becoming a...
