    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.

    JUST FOR FUN....

    1st - DeAndre Hopkins WR or Cordarelle Patterson WR
    2nd - Marcus Lattimore RB or Giovanni Bernard RB
    3rd - Denard Robinson WR or Stedman Bailey WR
    4th - Joseph Fauria TE
    If you want to go all out offense...

    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

    Wouldn't be mad with Hopkins
    I don't think you should spend a 2nd round on a RB , especially one that we would have to wait probably a year to get anything if anything out of ... maybe years before we were in a position to draft for the future, I don't think so anymore
    I would rather Ryan Swope here
    Don't think he'll be there in the 4th ... a 6'7 TE that can run and catch in todays NFL , i don't see anyway he lasts

    Oh yeah I really like Mike Gillislee 3-4

    swope is going to go earlier than he's currently being projected. he's a fit for a lot of teams. would you take him in the 2nd? because he wont be there in the 3rd IMO

    Miami has two 2nd rounders and 2 3rd rounders.... and desperately needs WRs.... i bet they take two WRs in the first 3 rounds

    Not too sure If I like Swope more than Cobi Hamilton ... But I wouldn't be mad with either one

    Warmack - Cooper
    Swope - Hamilton
    Gillislee - Barner
    and throw Michael Williams in their somewhere in the 5th or 6th
