Obviously still too early to tell, but..
Two starting OL's with a solid any position OL backup (beachum)
Two possible starters on D with Spence and Ta'amu.
And a Solid backup TE that might progress into a starter.
I'd say its way to early to call bust and in fact looks like it could be pretty good.
Personally I'm extremely excited to see what Spence brings when/if healthy.
I agree 100%.
The past three drafts have been very, very good. Lots of contributors already, with the potential of 10-11 starters in the bunch... with 4-5 Pro-Bowl level players.
The FUTURE is very bright for the Steelers.
2012: DD, Adams, Beachum, Paulson... even Rainey & Ta'amu
2011: Heyward, Gilbert, Brown, Allen, Carter, Batch
2010: Pouncey, Worilds, Sanders, Sylvester, Dwyer, AB
FUTURE STARTERS (Pro-Bowler
, Adams, Beachum, Spence
, Heyward, Gilbert, Allen
...with Worilds, Carter, Sanders, & Dwyer being "possible" starters.
