And then move Pouncey to LG for good? Sure.
I prefer Pouncey at LG. IMO he'd be Alan Faneca all over again.
Would the Steelers be better served solving need through FA and purely getting the best players they can at any position in the draft. I think that's the goal, just not sure it works perfectly
The problem is we don't have the cash to sign anyone thats good in the FA market, unless they sign stumble bums.
I believe they sign their own or as many as they can and the rest through the draft

Will Johnson last year is another example of money well spent.
Or Plaxico.. vet minimum does not always equate to minimum output. They could get Plax back at a very reasonable cost, and he could probably do what Cotchery did for us at $1.5m. That's good investment.
Steelers should look long & hard at Chris Cooley to fill in/take up the slack until Heath is fit.
Schiavone's Race Career:
I'd be happy with a WR at 17. Not sure what kinda grade this years WR draft class is getting, but another weapon for Ben sounds good. A TE is also fine.
A RB, but I would rather not. Unless its a guarantee.
A LB of any kind.
I really hope a kick ass CB is there at 17.
I would be ok with a S as well.
I was against an interior O-Lineman just because we have focused on that with early picks recently. Could say the same for OT(2nd rndrs being an early pick in my book).
Pretty much how I feel with DEs. Especially with D. L. comin back. High picks used on that position recently.
I am cool with a bad ass NT to team with Mcclendon.
I also feel like this team could use a stud that can visibly make an impact. Players get lost in the trenches. But not RBs, WRs/te, CBs/s and LBs. I know its hard to get on the field as a rookie with this defensive system D. L. runs, but we havent used a 1st rnd pick on a CB in a long frickin time. We would be wise to finally take one, especially in this age of football.
I'm fine with having systems in place for drafting, as long as you have the ability to deviate from that system when something comes up. NOT locked in is what I'm sayin.
I dont like being the 3rd best team out of 4.
I am for trading up or down and doing whatever to move out of that position and upward.
WE NEED SPEED, especially on defense and special teams!
