Do we need to trade up to get LenDale White?
 
I'm not sold on Parker and Deuce is way too injury-prone to count on. Haynes is a nice 3rd down HB, but he is not an every down back IMO. I say the Steelers should re-evaluate the rb position before looking at safety and elsewhere.

We can go with Parker, Duce and Haynes (we probably will) and then end up drafting an HB in the draft. Will it be Lendale White? I strongly doubt it. I'm not sure it's worth trading up in order to get him since we already have our main HB core. I still feel we will draft a WR in the first round to take the sting away from losing ARE. It will be interesting to see how things pan out.

with the signing of Morgan, that may mean we are psssing on the WR postion as well because they are very high on Washington

You can grab a pretty good wide receiver in the later rounds this year. Guys like Derek Hagen are probably going to fall down to 3rd and 4th rounds.

Nance will be available as well i think in the 3rd round due to his poor performance in combine and pro day.

not to mention, a receiver needs a couple of years to develop. We will probably draft a receiver in the later rounds for special teams. However, I just hope we don't overlook the rb position and have Deuce in street clothes, Parker still trying to get outside, and we become a more finesse team and lose our identity.

Steelers got 2 4ths and a 5th in comp picks. That gives us 3 picks in the 4th and 2 in the 5th. The ultimate would be to trade our normal 4,5,6,7 picks to get another high pick in the second and maybe go up in the third. The ultimate draft as I see it right now for us if that were to happen is to get Carpenter, Whitner witht he first two picks and then get nance and Drew from UCLA with the next two picks. That takes care of depth AND the future in just 4 picks.....

I'd like to see someone like Greg Blue in the later rounds if he's still around.

Running backs will be available later. How oten do we draft a first round running back anyway, the last one was probably Worley, and he was a bust. With our line, and commitment to the run, we could be like Denver, whoever you throw in works. I think someone will cut a back eventually, and we will pick him up

will be strange not having Bettis on the team after all these years
