    value arguments aside, you really don't see it as a need ?
    It's definetly a need, I think you could find a need at just about every position/area. I just don't think it would take priority over LT, NT, ILB, or FS/SS. One could also argue that the need at OG is atleast equal to the need at DE.

    I would say need is (in no particular order) .. FS, CB, DE.. but LT/ILB/NT/WR would be nice .. OG i am not worried about .. i would really like to see a more threatening #2 RB too ..

    i just think that 3-4 DE is such a huge $ position in the league now going forward that we would be lucky to come away with one of the top 4 at that spot THIS YEAR in the 1st with as good as we are playing right now ..

    I am not sure we are going to resign Colon, so I think OT will be a need.

    I'm hoping that because of his injury other teams don't chase him. Colon back at RG with Flo at RT would be beastly!

    I'm hoping we let Willie walk,I just don't see a lineman coming back from an Achillies injury and playing they same as he did prior to the injury,plus I thought he was nothing more than average before.

    I would love for the Steelers to pick OT Derek Sherrod or Demarcus Love in the draft.

    DE should be our first choice. Eason, Hoke, and Keisel are up there in age. Steelers can find a good CB in the third round.

    I think we need to get a DB and NT with our first two picks. I really like Drake Nevis(DT LSU) as a replacement for Hampton with our first round selection and a corner such as Jimmy Smith(CB Colarado) or Chimdi Chekwa(CB OSU) to help our secondary with our second round selection. Safety and O-Line need to be our 3rd and 4th round picks.
