    Steelers awarded draft picks!

    Steelers awarded draft picks
    The Steelers were awarded three compensatory picks on Monday, giving them 10 total in this year's draft.

    Pittsburgh got three extra seventh-round selections, getting the 33rd selection (pick 240), 39 (246) and 41 (248).

    The Steelers likely won't make a deal in the first few rounds, but moving up or down in later rounds is certainly a possibility.

    While the compensatory picks cannot be traded, the extra seventh-round selections will give the Steelers the option of dealing some of their picks in the middle rounds to move up a little higher.

    © William Gay signing with Arizona is not a surprise.

    The fact that he signed just a two-year deal is somewhat surprising, however.

    Bryan McFadden also signed a two-year deal with Arizona and found himself back in Pittsburgh a year later.

    Now, he might wind up being out of football.

    In my estimation, Gay is a slightly better player - because he can play in the slot - but two-year deals don't offer a lot of stability.

    The Steelers expected to lose Gay, however.

    With Keenan Lewis, Cortez Allen and Curtis Brown in the mix behind Ike Taylor, they're fine at cornerback.

    With those 3 picks I'm thinking we will take TE and K! And then a NT later than we all expect.... Looking for that diamond in the rough!

    We can't afford a "diamond in the rough" at nose tackle. We need someone now! Hampton is done!!

    Al Woods hopefully. Saints thought so...

    Defensive tackle Al Woods -- The Saints didn't have a true run-stopper to pair with Sedrick Ellis after tackle Kendrick Clancy was lost for the 2009 season. Woods, who is extremely agile, was known as a stout run defender at LSU and could help the Saints solve their problem.

    A closer look at the Saints' picks: Round 4/123 -- Al Woods, DT, 6-4, 307, LSU: The Saints needed a run-stopper and Woods was known for that at LSU, where he was a part of some top-rated defensive teams. They liked him so much, they traded up seven spots to get him. - by The Sports Xchange

    I don't exactly agree. We desperately need help at the offensive line. Other positions are fine now, but could be a problem (WR, RB, TE). Defensively, we only really need a nose and a MILB. Other positions are OK. Other than that, we need more depth all over.
