Default Which player do you wish the Steelers had on their roster?

I would like to know which non-Steelers player you guys wish the Steelers had?

For me I'd pick Jerod Mayo. He's honestly a no bullshit all work type of guy. There's a reason he's the leading tacklers since his inception in the NFL in 2008. This is from wikipedia:

Mayo has a well known work ethic that is derived from his reputation as a player who shows up early, stays late, watches film, practices hard and puts himself through intense work outs in the team’s weight room. Mayo’s positive attitude was highlighted in Michael Holley’s book “War Room”
”Mayo had been a top ten pick who didn’t act like one. On draft day, when the best of the best are invited to New York, often wearing made-for-occasion tailored suits, Mayo had been home in Virginia with his family raking leaves. He was a worker there and a worker in Foxboro. In the off season, he’d come to the stadium and watch film, even when there were no coaches to be found. He loved the game, and it could be seen by the way he played middle linebacker, never turning down the opportunity to plug a hole or run sideline to sideline.”

He'd be a great fit in the defense and he's one of those guys that truly leads by example.

Calvin Johnson or Adrian Peterson.

I know that's the easy answer, but imagine Ben throwing to/handing off to either of those guys?

Easy one, Richard Sherman:



He's a Steeler in Seahawks clothing.

Arian Foster, Lynch or AP. We need a feature back. Maybe Bell will become that guy...

Everyone who posts a running back or Wide receiver should realize we could have Jesus himself, but he would get nowhere without a solid O-line.

Richard Sherman (provided Tomlin teaches him to act like an adult) or JJ Watt.

I would pass on a RB because I think Bell will be the guy, plus I don't see any of them doing well behind this line. Having Megatron would be great though.

If I could go back and draft a player in the year that they were drafted: AP.

I've stated numerous times that I would have traded the entire 2008 draft, in order to have gotten AP. With him on the roster, and a lot of those player n their primes, the Steelers likely win two more SuperBowls (XLV and one other).

With Bell on the roster, and the way that they O-line is playing, I don't think I'd take AP... it would have to be a LT.

That said, there is not really a dominant LT. I do not see an Orlando Pace nor a John Ogden. Joe Thomas is very good... hmmm.

Megatron.

Bell is good enough, and adding Megatron to the mix would free up AB (who already is a league leader).

What about the pass rush??? Well, when the pass rush comes... BB throws it up for Megatron. 9 times out of 10, Megatron makes that catch (only one incompletion... and no sacks).

AP ran behind a terrible offensive line and got 2000 yards.
