LAST year was the year to get a back-up QB. This year's crop is average at best.

I still say that acquiring Ryan Lindley (from Arizona) makes a lot if sense. He was thrown to the wolves, behind a horrible O-line. He plays just like BB does (only not nearly as good). The offense would be very similar if Lindley had to start.

I'd also like to add:
Caleb Sturgis, K, Florida

Suisham has been great this year, but Sturgis can kick from beyond 40 yards.

Round 1
The Steelers lacked pass rushed ability this year rather it be injuries or age I think we need to upgrade there. Since we will be drafting in the top 18. If he is still there I would be extremely comfortable they drafted bjeorn Werner to play olb. Great pass rush ability. Has the size speed strength and technique.

Round 2
If mike Wallace is let go there will he a huge need for a wr. I would look for Quinton Patton wr L.A. tech. Watch some videos on this kid cause most of you probably never heard of him. Decent speed but great hands and good yac. Really like this kid.

Round 3
I think we need to address the ilb position badly. The reason why I wouldn't draft one in the first or second is cause I think Foote will be back for one more year and Spence hasn't had to chance to prove himself. But there still a need cause its a lot of ?there. Gerald hodge lb Penn state would be a good fit. He listed to be a olb some places but I view him more of a ilb he has the size for ilb not olb. He has had 100+ tackles the last 2 season and is reliable in pass coverage. Depth at ilb won't hurt the Steelers

Round 4
Safety should and I believe will be address in this draft. We needbto find replacements. So either a guy like duke Williams Nevada or shamarko from cuse.

Rest of draft bpa

Still a long way to go with the bowl games senior bowl combine and pro days. So my mind will change so will yours and most importantly draft stock to be able to predict where players will be drafted is impossible.

We will NOT take a NT early in this draft. That is unless he is someone they can convert to a DE or we are going to a 4-3. I am not even sure a LB will be taken early unless a sure nuff stud falls to us or we trade up. I foresee DB/S picks early, possible LB, RB, QB, TE, and DE/OL in that order.

I know it's highly unlikely that the Steelers draft another defensive lineman with their first round pick, I would love to see them draft Marcus Hunt, the defensive end from SMU. He's 6'8" 280lbs runs a 4.6 40, has a high motor, is all over the field, can play the run and pass. Reminds me of JJ Watt. Let's face it, Keisel is getting older and Hood has been less than stellar at best. If Te'o is not available when we pick, which I doubt because I think the Brownstains are going to snatch him up, then I think this guy is worth the pick. Other than that, I think safety or olb should be the first round choice.

Personally, I'm high on Kevin Reddick, ILB, North Carolina. I live in NC and saw him play a lot. IMHO, I think we would be an upgrade over Foote. But the question is this. Even if we draft a guy, not this guy necessarily, but any guy, will he play?

There isn't 1 specific position that sticks out over anything else that makes me think they will draft that way. I imagine they will simply draft the best prospect available, regardless of position.

Only depends on how high we drafted them & if they know the defense, Spence was a 3rd round choice last year and he was looking to start over Foote until he injured his knee
