    I like Lacy but, I don't see the Steelers taking a back in round one. Where is lacy going to run with no blocks? The line has to pave the way for any back even Adrian Peterson.

    YES! This guy was unbelievable, he ran with authority and dished out the hits. He could bring something back to the offense that has been missing, a tough physical presence with a little bit of meanness.

    That's what I was thinking. If Art II wants to run the ball with attitude and power this is the guy for the job. I'd love to know how many times in his career at Alabama he was actually tackled and didn't get forward lean for at least one more yard. It seems like every run is downhill.

    Dwyer would probably have Chadman covered.... that said- the Steelers would be well advised to invest in more oxygen tanks.

    While Lacy is a superior talent, both Redman & Dwyer resemble the type of RB you mention. Given that the Steelers are losing their biggest strike weapon in Wallace, and their biggest 'big play' RB in Mendenhall, wouldn't the Steelers be better off adding some strike power as opposed to another 'grinder'?

    Fine! Really don't want to use a 2 or 3 pick on a RB this year but it may be an absolute necessity. Mendenhall has not had any luck here. Between the injuries and other lapses it just seems he does not fit here. A change of scenery might be good for both him and the Steelers.

    I have been yapping for a couple or three years now. When are they going to replace Farrior and Hampton for starters on the D? Now as several have pointed out a number of other key players are in the final phase of their careers. Methinks TS better also get live in the FA market again this year. This off season just does not have the look of a put a band aid on it and all is well.

    QUESTION? What position does a team have the best chance of picking up a solid FA? RB? LB[I or O]? DB?or WR?

    I really worried big time when Bal picked up that Boldin guy. I feared it would tip the scales in their favor. I really hate it when TS get out FO'd. Oh well, they have to go to Denver now. I suppose a couple or 3 deep Interference calls will destroy some of that mo they got built up now.

    The one position that the Steelers can look to solidify through FA this year is one that isn't getting mentioned much- TE. Miller might be out for a significant amount of time, and picking up a vet FA might be a smart move. Chris Cooley, anyone?

    Completely agree and then take Barrett Jones in Round 2.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    I think we need to go with the pass rusher in the first round this year. I don't care if he is just a part time player but I'd love to get a guy who just goes after the QB. In the second I'd love to get a TE like Urtz but based on what other have said I don't know if he would last that long. I think he could give us that Gronk/Graham type of guy to bookend Heeeeeeeeath.

    What if teams became so enamored with the offensive linemen and running backs from Bama that Dee Millner falls to 1.17 (I've seen him mocked at around 1.13 - 1.15)? For whatever ridiculous reason last night ND kept attacking Millner until he finally deflected one that Clinton-Dix intercepted. I'm not sure what ND thought they saw on film that lead them to believe that Millner was the weak link in the secondary, but they must have seen something, because they kept challenging him (unsuccessfully).
