    Yes it is and they even say so.

    See the words "surely noticed" in bold. That tells me and every other person who read the article that they have no idea whether the Steelers noticed or even cared about what happens in New England.

    That is pure speculation.

    I just don't see Eifert being the pick.

    Your not alone, most mocks I seen have other players and positions in their mocks. IMHO in order to get immediate help the best chance is to go offense, if we're thinking future then defense may be the right decision.
    In our most recent drafts in round one not one defensive player was able to start or have extended playing time their first year. On offense several players had at least extended playing time year one, including Santonio Holmes, Mendy,Pouncey and if It wasn't for injury DeCastro would of started too.
    The way I see it Ben needs more help on the offense, it doesn't have to be Tyler Eifert but I thought he would be more NFL ready than most other positions on offense and capable of starting.

    Our defense kept most games close enough to win, its about damn time the offense quit relying on the defense and rely on themselves to win the game.
    Aren't allowed. Have to run the ball. Keep the defense rested.

    The Steelers asked an aging Defense to play at a high level for too long. They've started to slow over the lest 3 seasons.

    The Offense, on the other hand, has been revitalised with young players across the field.

    Time to do the same for the Defense.

    A NT, ILB, OLB, CB & 2 Safeties make more sense than a back-up TE on a team with 5 TE's currently on the books.

    Starting slow has nothing to do with their age.

    It's the coach running it.

    Same problems that have existed for YEARS since his return in 2004.

    Second most 4th quarter/game winning drives given up since 2007.

    They haven't been "old" since Tomlin's first day people.

    Look at the facts, not excuses.

    I completely agree Chadman.

    They already tried to address defense with Hood, Heyward, Worlids, Allen, Carter, and others, outside of Allen how much production did we see.
    Yeah the defense needs to be addressed but why does it have to be round one? We need playmakers and when you say 5 TE 's on the roster outside of Miller who gets in the end zone?

    How many of your defensive picks help us right now? I'm still waiting for Hood and Heyward and they were 1st round picks.

    Let's be fair- Hood has started for going on 3 seasons for a Defense that ranks in the Top 5 annually. Worilds has sat behind Harrison & Woodley for 3 years- hardly an indication of Worilds play as more of an indication of the skills of those in front of him. Heyward is what? A year from starting? Keisel is a UFA next season, so Heyward will step in as a starter there too. Why even mention Carter- a 6th round 'hope' pick that was always entrenched 4 deep? Drafting 6th round players is hardly preparing for the future- they are hit-and-miss products.

    The difference between the Offensive players getting on the field & Defensive players getting on the field isn't ability. It's opportunity. The Steelers OL was SO bad for years, that rookie & 1st year players were outplaying veterans. The WR's- Brown, Wallace & Sanders- would not be starting over Ward & Holmes if both were here in their 'primes', but opportunity (Holmes being traded away, Ward being too old to produce) opened the door.

    Thing is, Hampton is now gone. Harrison is now gone. Foote & Keisel are not far from gone. Polamalu & Clark are on the end of their careers. Taylor doesn't have 5 years left.

    The time to prepare for post-Polamalu/Clark/Foote/Keisel/Taylor is not AFTER they have gone, but before.
