And imo the Steelers have been woefully lacking in that department for years. Of course with so many teams using the spread them out dink and dunk offense it is difficult.
What the Steelers need to do is draft a couple stud defensive lineman in the first round, and then have them sit on the bench for a couple of years so slow old timers can play because they are 'vets'.
