Default Time to develop an young QB (and FS)

Hey guys Steelers fan from Mexico
I honestly hope they just tank the season without risking Ben to further damage, but I sincerly hope they draft a good solid QB in the second or third round. A guy like Zac Dysert or a Tyler Wilson would give them a few options for the innevitable Ben injury. Batch used to be pretty competent, but he had much better OL to work with and Leftwhich is a disgrace...is he made out of bubblewrap or something?
Also the Defense has been pretty good, Jaison Woirlds seems like the real deal to replace Harrison mybe by next year, and the young CBs have been pretty good, but they definelty have to look for a young Safety to take over for Polamalu; Allen and Mundy are average at best, and Clark is no spring chiken either

Jerrod Johnson might be the answer to our problems in regard to a younger quarterback. Having a veteran like Hoyer or Vick to be the second string would be ideal so he has two veterans to learn from.

the Steelers thought so highly of Jerrod Johnson that they brought in Brian Hoyer and Mike Kafka for tryouts after Leftwich was injured.

Isn't Johnson contractually obligated to the UFL?

Bienvenidos Carbon! Where in Mex are you? You bring up a good point! I sure do hope our next few draft years are good! One thing I know is, players like Troy & Ben only come around every decade or so!

I remember under the Cowher years we'd take a flyer on a 5th or 6th round QB nearly every year. I think it's a good policy to have. If you land a solid backup, great; If you land a perceived gem, you can trade to a desperate team for a premium pick or two (like the Kolb to Cardinals trade); and if you strike out, you release him and move on with your life.
