Default Kiper's midseason opinion

Pittsburgh Steelers Top emerging needs: CB, S, DL, WR

Analysis: The Steelers have done what they always do, and overcome injuries and personnel headaches to remain a Super Bowl contender. On defense, they could use an upgrade at cornerback, and Troy Polamalu's now consistent injury concerns mean they'll be looking for a safety who can both cover and support the run defense. Getting defensive linemen who can fit the Dick LeBeau scheme is always a necessity, and I think the situation with Mike Wallace and his contract could have them looking for value at wide receiver, an area they've drafted brilliantly in recent years.
Drafting tomorrow: John Jenkins, DT, Georgia

Default Re: Kiper's midseason opinion

Jenkins would be a wasted pick. DT isn't a huge priority right now, especially in the flashes that McLendon has shown. Granted, Jenkins can play 3-4 DE as well, but with another 8 games and offseason to grow I trust Heyward and Hood to take the necessary steps in not only stepping up their physical play but maturing.

Safety and OLB are much, much bigger needs right now than DT/DE.
