    I would be both shocked and dismayed.

    I would be shocked with a TE, 3-4 DE/DT, RB, O-LINE and of course, QB.

    I think all other positions are ripe for the picking.

    IMO, D-line is what makes the defense go... Ray Lewis had a couple of down years when Siragusa retired, until the ravens invested in Haloti Ngata... Each d-lineman that's good enough to consume 2, means a LB is totally uncovered. If the team is stuck starting Larry Foote again, I would be OK with a d-lineman in the 1st...

    That's true but this team has not been able to develop talent particularly on the defense recently. CB may be the only exception and that didn't happen until Lake got here.

    How do we know? And what is recent? Spence was hurt. Worilds has yet had an opportunity to prove himself as a starter...same for Heyward. Hood might be the only one we know isn't very good.

    I know it is blasphemy, but perhaps it isn't the players. Just maybe it is what they are being asked to do doesn't work as well as five years ago. The league has and continues to change.
    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!

    Or maybe the Steelers front office and those throughout the NFL that hold Lebeau in the highest regard are more knowledgeable than a guy on a message board who has complained about the defensive system throughout a period in which the Steelers went to three SBs, winning two.

    And would that be because of the player or the position?

    I'd be shocked if we picked Eifert but not dismayed, I think he and Heath in Haley scheme could do some serious damage over the course of the next 3-4 years....

    I'd be shocked if they did a 1st round Defensive End or a first round running back.
