Safety / OLB > CB > T.
I like Beachum's growth, and I certainly hope it continues. After all, "it's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog." But before we annoint Beachum, lets take of the Black and Gold glasses for just a second - the Steelers played a very, very weak schedule next year. Beachum still has a lot to prove.
