Default What should the Steelers do on Draft Day?

One of the previous posts displayed the draft classes during Cowher's tenure and I was not pleased to see the draft class we walked away from with in 1995 (Cowhers first Super Bowl trip).
Although things have gotten better with Colbert's influence, I will feel a whole lot better about our chance to repeat after a successful draft in 2006.
The Steelers have a total of 10 picks in this years draft. I cannot see more than 6 of those picks making the roster, let alone contributing on anything more than special teams and providing depth.
That being said, shouldnt the Steelers trade some of their picks and attempt to move up in the draft? Seems to make sense but the Steelers have traded up only once in the last couple decades. That was when they traded a couple middle round picks to move up 7 or 8 spots in the first round to get Polamalu.
That has worked out pretty well for us hasnt it?

Memo to Cowher and Colbert..... PLEASE BE ACTIVE ON DRAFT DAY!!!!!!!!!!
