Default Re: 2013 Draft: Maybe it needs to be about offense instead of defense

I would like to see them resign Wallace, although realistically I'm not getting my hopes up. Even if he resigns, can the Steelers afford to keep Sanders too? Might need to start thinking future with a tall WR.

2. Heath's injury made TE a need. But, Paulson looks like a good #2 (pass catcher, but not blocker). Maybe a third TE, to replace Pope.
Paulson is at best a backup. The Steelers need to start thinking about getting a TE with enough pedigree that could someday replace Heath as #1.

3. I'm not a fan of taking a RB early. It's a weak draft at the top... but, a deep draft. I'd add a RB to compete... but, honestly, I'm not sure any RB not drafted would be better than what the Steelers already have. Maybe a rookie "could" be better, but maybe not; no one blows me away in this draft.
I wouldn't draft an RB any higher than the third round. Even then, that RB could have better pedigree than Dwyer and Redman

4. The one area where the Steelers could upgrade is LG (Warmack, Cooper, Barrett Jones). That would help ANY RB. That said, I think that they go with Beachum (or Foster).
If they're serious about protecting Ben, then they need to do better than Beachum.
