We have been very fortunate to have had Casey Hampton spoil us with outstanding NT play but he is getting older and is looking for that one last payday. I believe we will franchise Big Snack and draft a NT in this draft. If Dan Williams is available (he may not get past Miami at #12) then the Steelers will seriously need to consider him.
There are plenty of good CB and FS prospects available in Rounds 2-4. Here's to hoping the Steelers choose wisely and find a couple of playmakers, something that was sorely lacking last season without Troy roaming the secondary.
