Max Starks - P.O.S. This guy sucks! Nothing personal but he's gonna get Ben killed.
Chris Kemoeatu - Our best pulling guard, plays with an attitude.
Justin Hartwig - A below average center who can't hold his ground against most NT's.
Trai Essex - Below average guard but a servicable back-up.
Willie Colon - Our best O-lineman.
Tony Hills - ???
Kraig Urbik - ???
Ramon Foster - Has filled in nicely for Kemo. Perhaps our future RG?
Doug Legursky - Back-up talent. Strong but slow feet.
Darnell Stapleton - Injured reserve. Could this be our future starting center?
This O-line is not good as a whole. There are pieces that we can build around. I would like to see them draft a franchise LT, but I don't see that happening. Starks has 3 years left on a newly signed contract and they cannot afford to put first round money at a position they are already paying so much for. We still have no idea what we have in Hills or Urbik since they have not seen any playing time. I think Colon gets the franchise tag this year. It would be disastrous to lose the best of the starters on an already below average line. I think the Steelers will bring in some training camp fodder to push the guys we already have but don't see us adding significant pieces to this line. Would love to see an Anthony Davis or a Bruce Campbell but there are more pressing needs on the other side of the ball.
Heath Miller - Keeper. One of the best in the league. Blocks and catches everything.
Matt Spaeth - I haven't seen anything special from Spaeth. Expendible
David Johnson - Better blocker than Spaeth on the 2 tight-end sets. #2 TE ???
We are good at this position. Don't see us drafting a TE and the 3 we have are more than adequate although I would like to see Johnson overtake Spaeth on the depth chart.
Rashard Mendenhall - Still developing but clearly the #1 back.
Willie Parker - UFA will likely sign with another team for more $$ than we would pay him.
Mewelde Moore - They might choose to resign him but could find his 2 mil price tag too steep for a third down back.
Carey Davis - Terd. Have never been a fan of his. Wasted roster spot IMO.
I expect the Steelers to draft a RB and probably bring in a couple more undrafted rookies to compete for the vacant jobs. Don't forget about Isaac Redman.
I am so over my Frank "The Tank" Summers obsession.
Hines Ward - Still a clutch player and best blocking WR in the league.
Santonio Holmes - Clearly our #1 wideout. Explosive, great RAC.
Mike Wallace - Our star from last years draft. Getting better with each game.
Limus Sweed - Personal problems? The Sweed experiment is quickly coming to an end.
Joey Galloway - Won't even be invited back. Emergency stop gap only.
Tyler Grisham - 1 catch, 1 drop. Still an unknown.
No doubt the Steelers will look to bolster their wide receiving corps with a couple more additions. I don't think they address this postion until after the 4th or 5th round.
Ben Roethlisberger - Franchise. Needs better protection.
Charlie Batch - Time to retire Charlie.
Dennis Dixon - Moving up to #2. Liked what I saw from him in the game he played. Coaching is what prevented him from winning the game. He was playing with the cuffs on the entire game. Arians was afraid to unleash him.
I can see the Steelers picking up another QB in the later rounds or even an undrafted free agent after the draft. Whoever this insignificant person is won't make the final roster and will be relegated to the practice squad the rest of the season.
