Default Re: Bigger Need for the Steelers: Cornerback or O-Line?

So, if we have the chance to draft Mike Pouncey, then i would take it because we already know how skilled and knowledgeable his twin was coming out of Florida, which translated to a 2nd team All-Pro selection
im all for drafting mike in rd. 1. this cb class is deep and we can still get a good one in the 2nd-3rd round.

getting mike would solidify our o-line for the next decade. if you have the chance to do such a thing, you DO IT.

i think we should draft 2-3 corners this year, or 2 corners and bring in some raw UDFA's to test out. we need some new bodies in the secondary.
