At pick 17...We need a player that can help now, not on his 3rd year.

Remember that when Ben goes down for a few weeks and Lefty is at the helm.

Can you imagine what drafting a Qb in the first would do to Ben' s ego. Now on the other hand if you got him a big receiver the opposite would happen.

Justin Hunter is my guy ... He didn't look as good last year but I doubt his knee was 100% ... this would be going into year 2, that knee should be 100% and you get somebody that was being compared to AJ Green ...

If we choose a WR with our good position in the draft I will vomit all over the place.

I agree, I wouldnt mind picking up a Robert Woods type in the second or third though. We desperately need a big physical threat especially with Heath being out.

I get the reasoning behind wanting to take a Quarterback in the first round, but we just can't. There's way too much defensive talent stacked in this class for us to consider taking a Quarterback at all, let alone in the first round.

This is a weak Quarterback class and in fact, might be the weakest in recent memory. There isn't a Quarterback worth taking in the first round other than Geno Smith. We can use someone like Garrard or Hoyer as a band-aid option until there's a legitimate Quarterback option in the draft we can take.

Exactly. If the Steelers pick a WR in the first you will have the same fans next year asking for a WR in the first and so on...

Replacing Wallace shouldn't be difficult. All they need to do is find a WR with a great 40 time. To be like Wallace all the WR needs to do put forth minimal to zero effort, drop passes and run straight ahead. Then do all of that for a fraction of what Wallace wants.

Good news is that every mock draft i've seen from the draft experts has us taking defense, defense, defense and more defense.
No worries here.
