    Will Steelers Ever Trade Up Again ??

    I think the last time the Steelers traded up ( first round anyway ) was to get Polamalu. We are usually drafting late and other than hitting rarely in the 3rd and 4th rounds, we really haven't done too well in rounds 2-5. Shouldn't we occaisionally package our 1st and 2nd ( or 3rd ) to move up for a need position ( CB ). Usually, the really super-quality guys at OT or CB are gone before we pick. Add to this the fact that the Steelers usually find a quality UFA or two and the draft picks become less valuable.

    This is a deep draft, like last season. It would be wiser to trade back if possible. But, if the right player is there, I have no problem with trading up a bit. It will all depend on how things unfold.
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.
