I've been saying for the past 2yrs that we should have been drafted a replacement for Casey Hampton. If you pay attention he really is a non-factor, he doesn't get the push he used to at the point of attack and he's being moved easily off the line.
We have our other replacements in line for the line (hood, heyward), but the NT has to be a priority in the future. I'm kind of disappointed they haven't drafted sooner. That will be a factor going forward. As we all know a NT is essential to a 3-4 D. With out one prepared to get ran on all year long.
hampton plays like any other fat NT would play. he isn't worth that salary.
i am thinking the steelers will BPA either a CB, T/G or NT in the 2012 draft
