Default Could there be a more accurate assesment of our needs?

Pittsburgh Steelers

1. Cornerback: Ike Taylor's contract is up and while they want to re-sign him, they will be in more dire trouble if they do not. As it is now, the Steelers are just in trouble. They do not have another decent corner on the team and many defenses need three of them. They have swung and missed drafting them in rounds 3-5 so they must pay more attention to it this year.

2. Offensive tackle: The Steelers have not drafted an offensive tackle in the top two rounds in the past 10 years other than Marvel Smith, their only Pro-Bowl tackle in this century. Here are their top three tackles: Flozell Adams, who turns 36; Max Starks, coming off neck surgery; Willie Colon, a pending free agent who did not play in 2011 because of a June Achilles rupture.

3. Offensive guard: Three different players started at right guard last season and their starting left guard, Chris Kemoeatu, has frustrated them for a couple years now. They settled on undrafted free agent Ramon Foster at right guard after benching returning starter Trai Essex during the season. Right now, Doug Legursky might be the best answer there and he also went undrafted.
