    Brown didn't help, either...

    Arizona... put him on the other side of Fitzgerald and it could be scary... and he may even take less just to reunite with BA... just sayin....

    And when you remove the most damaging & dangerous RB from the roster too... happy days...
    and yet, most of the mocks i've seen from steeler fans got them going with defense at the top of the draft

    Mocks are just a bunch of guys wishing they were GM's. Don't put too much stock in them.

    That said- one thing to not overlook IF the Steelers go Defense in Round 1 is simply age. The age of the Offense, as a whole, is quite young. This can't be said on Defense. The Steelers don't draft 'starters' necessarily in the Draft- they select 'future starters'. Like it or not- the Steelers are committed to young players along the OL, at WR & at RB. Drafting more young players for these spots is almost like giving up on the ones they are developing. Where as on Defense, there are no young safeties of note, Keisel, Harrison, Taylor, Foote, Hampton... there's a lot of age there. Long term, it makes more sense for the Defense to get the prime young player this season.

    The Packers are losing Jennings & Driver, the Patriots could lose Welker & there is talk they will release Brandon Lloyd, Miami are after a #1 WR for Tannehill, the Lions are after a WR to put at #2.... there will be no shortage of options for Wallace.

    Chadman is very concerned that a WR group of Brown, Sanders & Cotchery isn't going to give Ben enough to work with. Any rookie brought in will sit no higher than 3rd on the depth chart, and chances are they will be less effective than Wallace was in 2012. Whichever way you look at it- the WR's will not be a 'better' group in 2013, and on top of this- we have no reliable ground game.
    Steelers | WR a top priority in the draft
    Mon, 04 Feb 2013 12:03:41 -0800

    The Pittsburgh Steelers will make wide receiver a top priority in this year's draft with TE Heath Miller (knee) injured and WRs Antonio Brown and Emmanuel Sanders both similar receivers that won't strike fear in opposing secondaries due to their lack of threat on the deep routes. California WR Keenan Allen may be a target, as he's considered a top-15 pick. Tennessee WR Cordarrelle Patterson is another prospect expected to be taken in the first round, but he's not as polished as Allen and lacks top-end speed.

    cordarelle patterson may lack top end speed, but I never saw anyone catch him on the football field.

    I suspect he will put up some outstanding #s at the combine.

    I am really starting to like darick rogers from tn tech and, I know chadman does as well.

    Da'Rick Rogers is an outstanding football player. If he can keep himself together, he could be a star.

    I agree chadman. I'm willing to give rogers a bit of a pass on his TN days. He looked to me like a kid who was crying for discipline, but who had maybe the worst coach in tenn history in derek dooley. I mean this guy was clueless. From everything I heard rogers was a pretty good student and was basically an immature kid, but not a real trouble maker. IIRC, he was a 5 star prospect when he came out of georgia.

    he was very impressive at TN his sophmore year, especially after justin hunter was hurt early in that year vs. UF and TN had nobody on the other side. He still'produced in a big way against excellent competetion while teams tried to take him away. I agree that he may be a real star. I would take him in the 3rd if we don't draft a WR earlier.
