    Did we get a top 10 pick in the 2nd round?

    Tuitt was definitely considered a first round talent in 2012. Last year he had some injuries which dropped him down. But if we end up with the 2012 Tuitt, we might have nabbed a top 10 type pick in the 2nd round. #dopedraftpick

    Steelers' DL coach John Mitchell has stated exactly that, if it weren't for Tuitt's injuries in 2013 Tuitt would have been a top-10 draft pick...

    The potential upgrade on D with Tuitt and Shazier - as well as the development of Jones, Heyward, Shark - makes me grin. The Steelers' D might be back.

    Im equally optimistic but that list is long on potential and short on accomplishment.

    "short on accomplishment". Well, yes, they just got drafted.

    Maybe not week 1. But who is going to beat him out?

    Our top 3 safeties will likely be Troy Polamalu, Mike Mitchell, and Will Allen and our top 3 corners will likely be Ike Taylor, Cortez Allen, and William Gay, so it doesn't look like there will necessarily be spot for Shark in our regular defensive back rotation from the start (unless he beats out the wily veteran Will Allen in camp) but he is learning SS, FS, and slot CB, so he would fill in anywhere in the secondary as soon as someone goes down to injury.
