That traded draft pick (to the Browns) is going to haunt the Steelers.

I do not blame them for taking Shamarko; he is going to be good. BUT, in hindsight, they could have gotten him four picks later (with their own R4 pick). Landry Jones had better be something special.

The good news: the Steelers will likely get a couple of R3 compensatory picks. Now, 97 & 98 is not as good as (let's say) 75... but, at least there will be a couple of R3 picks.

In my opinion, it depends on where the Steelers draft.
Top 10: LT
11-16: NT
17-32: CB

If I "had" to wait on one, it'd be CB. Ike & Allen (& Gay) for one more season would suffice, but McClendon is more if a DE than a NT. and, I'd prefer Beachum inside (instead of at LT).
