Re: Hunt for three key draftees heats up for Steelers
I still say Elam/Vaccaro.
Ed Bouchette mentions that this is Troy's final season & Clark will be a FA after this season... and, Ed also says that their replacements will be found in THIS draft. Hence, I see two safeties drafted (something I've wanted second to Elam is a safety tandem).
Since this is an extremely deep draft for safeties, they could wait (to my disdain)... but, I still would not be surprised is Elam/Vaccaro is the pick at 17.
When this defense has been dominant, it's had a great SS (and/or a very good tandem).
