    The Steelers will take the BPA, but assuming that Lewis is resigned, I see the Steelers leaning towards a OLB, ILB, S, WR or OL, in no particular order, depending on who is available.

    The Steelers have invested high picks in Gilbert, Adams, DeCastro and Pouncey and I think they're going to roll with those guys and Foster as the starters going into the season. I suspect that picks on the OL will be for depth, not starters.

    The offense is in dire need of skill position players, especially if both Mendenhall and Wallace leave.

    On the defensive side of the ball, I'd look for pass rushers and ball hawks, but would have to really consider Te'o if he is there. If there is a NT avaialble, it's tempting to pick Casey's replacement, but the bottom line is that Hampton played fewer snaps that Cortez Allen. If you find a guy who will be a moster in the middle, I'd consider him, but if not, I'd go with Hampton on a vet minimum contract, McClendon, and Te'amu/Fangupo.

    Okafor probably wouldn't be my pick. I believe the Steelers will love him though. He is a first round talent, not a second.
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    The FO has invested a lot of picks in the O-Line, including 2 #1s and 2 #2s...throwing another #1 at it is going to be the difference?

    I get it Ovi. And, I agree. We need more OL. The problem is that, imho, there are only three OL worth our first round pick. Joekel, Fisher, and Warmack. I believe all will be long gone before 17. So, unless we trade up, I don't think we will get one.
