    Personally, I would be looking at adding a TE near the top of our draft. We have seen that with Haley this position is a real weapon.
    I would love to have another TE as a weapon to compliment Heath, but without Wallace, the Steelers need to add another WR. Sanders demonstrated that he is not a starting caliber player, and neither are Burress and Cotchery at this point. Whether early in the draft or through free agency, the Steelers will need to address WR if Wallace leaves. Adding both a WR and TE early leaves little room to add youth to the defense.

    we have one of the top guys in the league at that position (yes, i know he'll be rehabbing)

    who do we have like that at the WR position?

    I agree with you phillyesq. When Wallace leaves the Steelers, and he will leave, this is going to be a much bigger need than a back up TE. I dont think the Steelers are going to rely on two players (Cotchery and Burress), who caught a total off 20 receptions the past year.

    In the second round you would be foolish to pick a back up TE when a good one could be had in later rounds. See my signature. 6 ft 7 TE who caught 11 TD's for UCLA in a run dominate offense.
