    Our other weakness will be continued offensive line help.
    Agreed!! And Jenkins is no where near Haloti Ngata.

    Lets also keep in mind that the Steelers ranking for their defense is also based on having played one of the worst opponents win-loss percentages in the league.

    1-Darqueze Dennard CB Michigan State
    2-Jordan Matthews WR Vanderbilt

    5-Brent Urban DE Virginia
    5-Michael Schofield OG/OT Michigan
    6-Kadeem Edwards OG Tennessee State
    6-Ben Gardner DE Stanford
    7-Aaron Colvin CB Oklahoma

The Steelers could possibly let Mclendon compete against Hood,Heyward and Keisel if he's still here for the DE position.

    OG is another position they could look at, at any rate most games are won on the line of scrimmage and we need players there that can dominate. I would be happy with either position being upgraded, but I would prefer NT especially one who has the power to move people even when double teamed.
    I can't think of a worse draft. DL and OG? What the frick have they been doing the last 4 years? We have to make due with what we got at DL and OG for now. DeCastro will work out fine and the left over parts will make us OK at OG, without us needing to use a high pick, any how.

    They got to go with DB, LB and RB and TE and WR. DL and OG are not nearly as high on the priority list.

    Who is going to replace Casey Hampton? If he stays another year and accepts a lower amount of salary they may go in another direction, but we will need a disruptive NT. McClendon is too light in the britches to play NT on a regular basis so who do we have for that position?
    Look, we could use help in many positions, so I guess it depends on who is there when we pick. I could be wrong but I still say NT, however if a good safety is available I wouldn't be opposed to taking him. Mundy isn't starting material, Troy and clark have what 11 years in the league? We need to get young at that position for the long term.

    Are you giving up on Ta'amu already? I thought he was supposed to rule at NT. I know he went on a bender and got in trouble, but his career isn't over already is it? McClendon seems decent, at least to back up. We need DBs and a LB or 2. We must get some play makers out there.

    I don't know what the Steelers plans are regarding Ta'amu, first he has a legal hurdle to overcome. If he should get through the legal issues, he may have a second chance with the team but for now it's all up in the air. If he is able to compete for the position, then the Steelers may go in another direction in the draft. At this rate BPA might be the ticket in the 2013 draft as we need help in almost every position.

    If we could work out a trade with a team, we might be able to get an extra draft pick for Wallace, as it appears he will sign with another team.
    Btw, I'm hearing skuttlebutt that Miami might pursue Wallace.

    If Matt Barkley is there, do you take him? He could be BPA.

    Please no, do not draft a quarterback from USC that is highly regarded (we've seen enough of them live down to expectations), unless, he's there in the 5th or 6th round.
