    2013 draft has serious lack of skill playwers, but tons of line talent

    I'd just ignore the skill positions this year, and focus on line help.
    So many "good" linemen this year. LSU, Bama, Oregon, South Carolina, Miss St., Wisconsin, Stanford, and so many other teams have strong lines on both sides of the ball.

    The steelers need a thrill and a threat at RB, and a trade would be great.

    I'd send Oakland our 3rd round pick for Taiwan Jones. Throw in a 4th rounder if need be.

    Then pick 2 OL, and 2 DL.

    Also completely disagree, this is a great draft for skill position players in the first 2 rounds

    Skill positions = QB, WR, RB, DB, Pass Rusher

    Not a good QB draft
    Excellent WR draft
    Shallow RB draft
    Excellent DB draft
    Elite top end pass rusher draft
    Banana Fett !?!? Where???

    I would not call the WR class excellent. It lacks a really amazing WR for that. It is a good, solid class for certain, but it lacks that AJ Green like talent for it to be excellent imo. Its filled with borderline good WRs (late first, second round players), who could easily become good NFL receivers, but nothing more imo.
    However much you think you know about football, rest assured that Skip Bayless knows more!

    Agreed. It lacks the super elite top 5 talent... But is a very talented 1st thru 3rd round talent

    I'd bank on a WR pickup within the first 3 rounds. Infact I think we take a late round flyer as well. Without Wallace, Cotchery and Burress we are really slim. How did we let Toney Clemons disappear?
