    I'm pretty sure Sheldon Richardson would be projected to play NT if the Steelers selected him.

    That's a draft that will ensure Ben is on the sidelines injured for 2-3 games minimum. Uncertainty and no depth on the OL and we ignore it in the draft.
    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!

    As much as you and I prefer a dominate O-lineman, most likely the Steelers won't draft one at least early, they possibly might draft one in the later rounds for depth.
    It was pointed out here the Steelers are unlikely to draft any O-line positions as the Steelers already invested in that unit, so all we can hope for is either Gilbert and Adams to step up. Out of the two, I thing Adams might win that job but its just a guess we'll see.

    Do you really think the Front Office is confident that Gilbert and Adams are the for sure answer? I'm not!

    Besides that does nothing to address that they missed significant time due to injuries.

    They are young players. We need to move out the old dead wood and play the yutes, right?

    Here's Bouchette's take on the 2013 O-line. He seems confident the front office likes the players they have and intend to use them. Based on this, the Steelers are going with Pouncey (C) , DeCastro (G), Adams (T), Gilbert (T) and Beachum (G) as starters. Can't see them taking another line man in the first couple rounds if they believe they have a starting line already.


    Bouchette:
    "The Steelers offensive line will change dramatically for 2013.

    Three regular starters likely won't return and all three players who took turns starting at right tackle should start at separate positions.

    There is a caveat to all of this, of course: Provided they all stay healthy.

    Look for Max Starks and Ramon Foster to leave in free agency and Willie Colon to be released. Colon's knee injury that placed him on injured reserve for the third season in a row was the last straw. The Steelers want to move on, and they believe they have the right man to replace him.

    They drafted Kelvin Beachum -- their fourth and final pick in the seventh round last year -- to play guard, even though he started at tackle for all 52 games of his four years at SMU. When Marcus Gilbert and Mike Adams were shelved by injuries after starting at right tackle, the Steelers turned to Beachum. He started the final five games and did a nice job. It helped to convince them he can start at guard.

    They will turn right tackle over to Adams. Gilbert will start at left tackle. There was a time many assumed Adams would play left tackle, but he is a more natural right tackle, a better run blocker, and Gilbert's more natural position is left tackle.

    David DeCastro will take over at right guard as he did at the end of the season when he became healthy. And, of course, there is three-time Pro Bowl center Maurkice Pouncey.
    Their backups are to be determined because at the moment only John Malecki is under contract from their season-ending roster.

    That, ladies and gents, is your 2013 Pittsburgh Steelers offensive line. Check back for medical updates."

    Three words: Recipe for disaster

    Draft a QB in Round 2 or 3 because we need a high quality one because he will get plenty of chances to play once Ben is out injured.

    What about after the backup is injured? Should we follow up with a fourth rounder too?
