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
I know that I am in the minority, but I think Robert Golden can be the FS of the future with the Steelers.I think we see an OLB in the 1st, a safety in the 2nd and a WR or ILB in the 3rd.
