3.89 OLB, Alex McCalister, Florida, 66 240-Jarvis Jones replacement
4.123 S Jayron Kearse, Clemson, 64 216-hybrid type we could use in 3-3-5 defense
6.220 OT Stephane Nembot, 67 322-raw talent with ton of upside

The Steelers started a 3 yr OLB, a 3 yr NT, a rookie ILB for many games, a 2nd yr DE, ... just how much younger do they need to get?
Unless injuries take out all the vets in front of them, and they are forced to put the rookies in, they won't be in on day 1. "Rookies" and "plug and play on day 1" don't go together with our D.
BTW, I agree with you that a dominant front 7 makes your DBs look a lot better.

can nix rush the passer?
not sure what a run stuffing only NT does for this D. teams will just spread us out and pass on us. like they've been doing over the years.
like the whole league is starting to do in every game.
