    I hope both guards are gone just for the reason that I think the Steelers have invested enough in the O-Line in the past couple years and need to see what they have there now. What good is a great line that is blocking for a bunch of scrub RB and WR's... Like really. The NFL isn't ground and pound anymore. We need offensive weapons to score, which right now means we need not just a starting caliber WR and RB in the draft... but we need #1 guys at both positions.

    I'm also fairly content with what we have on the D-Line.
    Doesn't matter how good of a RB we have if there are no holes open for him. It doesn't matter how great WR we have if Ben doesn't have time to throw the ball to him. Regardless if we draft a guard or not, one way or another that offense line has to improve or it will be another disappointing season.

    ok maybe the guarantee was a little overboard, but your more into to that word than actually understanding of what I am saying. And as far as the Steelers not having a game plan your nuts, you think their just gonna sit there twitling there thumbs saying ok we'll just take the BPA. Of course there's a plan just like last year and a player fell in their laps, (DC). You must unsderstand their gonna have a few players that their gonna have on their list as probably not gonna be their but if so then they jump, thats the players I listed. Also have a list as to what might be there and are they worth the 17th pick or try and trade. So dont be hate-en me I'm on your side. Steelers for Life!!!!!!!

    DUH!!! I think I listed Star. And Floyd is top 3. Plus if you read the article in Steeler Depot, 4 of our 7 DL contracts expire after this year.

    K-Train is "okay". But he goes off track with Patterson. Which shows he has flaws too.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    It will hurt to watch Patterson or Eifert killing it... and one not being a Steeler. add in Hopkins too.

    Floyd would be a horrendous pick for the Steelers, not a schematic fit at all. purely a 4-3 DT

    McClendon and Heyward are under contract long term.

    The expriring contracts of an aging Keisel, and bust in Hood, and 2 fringe players (Woods, Ta'amu)... does not necessitate the investment of another high pick in the D Line...

    Fangupo NT 4 yrs
    McClendon NT 3 yrs
    Heyward DE 2 yrs
    Ta'amu NT 1 yr (ERFA)
    Hood DE 1 yr
    Keisel DE 1 yr
    Al Woods 1 yr
    Banana Fett !?!? Where???

    This guarantee is a joke. Pgh could take the best OLB prospect, WR or who knows, even CB. We don't have any idea. The only things we know they won't be taking at 17 is a QB, OC, RB (can get a good one later) or DE. Anything else is possible depending on how they think we are at the other positions, and how highly they rate a player on the board.

    I think the only year in recent history when the Steelers knew who they wanted is when they drafted Troy. They just wait and see what BVP falls to them each year.
