Default 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).

Shell... Wagner
Lake... Perry
Polamalu... Hope/Clark
Elam/Vaccaro... Swearinger/McDonald/Williams/Rambo/Jefferson
