Default Re: Offense or defense this draft?

I can't believe people are complaining about not drafting more WRs. Ben had a 1st round TE in Heath Miller. Another 1st round WR in Santonio Holmes until the end of 2009. Complimented by Hines Ward- the most prolific WR in Steelers history. Why would they have drafted more WRs in Tomlin's first 3 years??? How many user names does Matt Millen have on this forum exactly???

What the draft order actually shows is OL was neglected until the last 2 years.

Tony Hills (4th) and Kraig Urbik (3rd) were the only efforts made to draft OL before Pouncey.

Steelers are drafting defense in the first round this year. It is a defensive year. The earliest an offensive player will be taken is in the second round. All the talk about Justin Hunter, Eddie Lacy or Tyler Eiffert is just noise. None of them will be available when the Steelers pick in the middle of the 2nd round.
