    The Steelers have a lot of needs. THE most important thing is to 'hit' on the 1-3rd rd picks. Been too many misses the last few years and it is really showing up in all over the team.

    Lol... yeah, it made sense when we were going to SB's and making playoff runs but there is no reason our 1st rounder shouldn't see the field his first year given how bad we are playing.

    shame we traded away our 3rd, but at least the backup backup QB position is secure

    true. i didnt like it before but understood it. the last couple years theres no excuse for these guys not getting playing time. unless of course we are dropping the ball on the players selected or not developing them. either way, bad news

    Well, we had a number of rookies seeing the field this year. No reason to think that a rookie can't crack the lineup if they merit it.

    The way we're playing, I wouldn't be all that surprised if we end up with an even higher pick.
    Look at my sig, I think that is who the Steelers will target. With that said, Denard-DB Michigan State impressed me a great deal last game. It would be very hard to pass on a franchise LT, but we are going to need a DB soon.

    Seen that, and was gonna mention his name. That pick would make Ike expendable.

    who has contributed? jones, invisible. bell, way below average. wheaton, nope. thomas a little i guess.
    like i said, they are drafting the wrong guys or cant coach them up to merit any playing time
