    Perhaps the next draft needs to be about offense instead of defense...

    Look at how many points these so called "good" defenses are giving up in the playoffs. You see final scores of 38-35, 45-31, and 30-28 tells me you need to put up points to win. Everyone is talking about how the Steelers need a OLB, which is true, but what about a running back, or a tall WR? Is Heath going to be ready for 2013? Probably need another tight end. Offensive lineman isn't out of the question either.

    I have been saying for the past few years all the concentration in the draft should be on offense.....Its an offensive league and just fill the defense with patchwork type players.....But this team does need a pass rusher in this draft....I would be all for a pass rusher and all offense draft.......But I doubt that happens.......

    Before this weekend,every team in the playoffs were In The top twelve in scoring defense.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    If Mingo falls he has to be the pick imo. I also think Hopkins at 17 is a reach at this given time. Lattimore in the second is a huge risk, but I dont mind it. Its about time we hit one of those picks.
    However much you think you know about football, rest assured that Skip Bayless knows more!

    you know I am fully on board with pass rusher in the 1st (everyone knows i am hard for Dion Jordan)

    the problem, is the depth of pass rushers in this draft is weak... im not looking forward to drafting the next Worrilds or Alonzo Jackson in the 2nd, lol.

    I'd trade up for Jordan
    or Hope for Mingo to fall

    if not... i'm going WR in the 1st

    Then give me Keenan Allen all day provided he'll be there. I just dont like any other WR at 17 as of right now. I would not be opposed to trading down if WR indeed was the pick in the first.

    Blah
    As long as it's not another lineman. We've selected 4 linemen in the first round in a row. Pouncey is excellent and they say DeCastro will be as well, I'm not sold on Hood or Ironhead. I feel strongly we can get good value on the interior positions later in the draft, but it's much harder to hit on skill players later on (though they have been fortunate in the last few years.)
