    Like Dub said... I think WR is a position you can get in later rounds. Brown was a 6th rounder, Wallace was a 3rd I believe...

    and like you said, we have Wheaton, Moyer, etc... I also think Sanders will be back. He is the knew whipping toy this year on offense but his production is pretty good IMO.
    You can make the argument that any position can be found later in the draft.

    You can draft a big WR in the first or second and still invest three of the first four picks on the D. If Sanders leaves, WR is a necessity, not a luxury.

    So you want to have a WR group with Cotchery as the #2 and Wheaton as the #3? That is simply not an NFL caliber group of WRs.

    Yes it is... and we will draft a WR in a later round.

    Not if they resign Cotch. I think they could field a decent corp. with Brown, Cotch, Wheaton, Moye and a rookie.

    Round 1) Pittsburgh Steelers: Louis Nix, NT, Notre Dame

    Back when the Steelers had a dominant defense, they were always very forceful up front. They need to retool their line, so adding Louis Nix would really help. Pittsburgh already has a solid nose tackle in Steve McLendon, but there's been speculation that McLendon could be moved outside. Thus, both positions are open for upgrades.
