In true Steeler fashion, we'll go for depth at LB too.. just to sure up both the inside and outside.

Okobi has been waiting his turn patiently to take over for hartings..they like chukki, but we always draft an OL or 2 to help for the future, and this coming up draft will be no different. Essex is good and we have some decent depth now, but u cant have enough good OL.
I can definitely see that being the first day drafts. The WR as you said pretty much kinda depends on El. Although I would like to see them get a tall WR in there.

I really think they'll make a run to resign El next year... he wont demand THAT much money in FA that we cant sign him... as long as he had a decent year, I think he'll wanna stay

I think/hope they retain ARE, he is getting better every year. I dont think the need for a tall receiver is needed as much as in the past as we have Heath now, which opens up mismatches for other teams in the redzone where tall receivers are needed. If we can lock up ARE with Ward and Miller and Ben for the next few years, we are going to have a potent offense, that gets more comfortable with each other, that will get better every game for years to come. We are almost to the point of an elite offense already.

I would be surprised to see the Steelers go after a two time girlfriend beater,a.k.a.larryJohnson, but I do like his game

DE,RB,then WR, I could see this. Although I would like to see a big hitting Safety.

I like the DE, RB, WR selections on the first day (not necessarily in that order).

With Ike and Deshea being free agents, and this likely being Williams last season... I think there is a good chance that we do draft another corner.

Honestly, if the Steelers don't sign El... I want them to draft Michael Robinson (QB Penn State) This guy is one of the best athletes in the nation. He is big, strong, fast, and smart he graduated from PSU in 3 1/2 years with a 3.75 GPA... I think he will be the next college QB converted to WR, and I bet he will be the best. He started like 5 games at RB, and 7 at WR, and now he is our full time QB. He would have played QB earlier but PSU had noone to hand the ball to or throw it to. He has a cannon for an arm and could be an emergency QB in the NFL. He is such a great footbal player (ala Hines Ward), and is very exciting with the ball in his hands. if he can avoid the hype that surrounded El and Matt Jones we will be able to get him later in the draft, and what a steal it would be...

I will be starting a draft Mike Robinson petition at the end of the season.

OK this is an easy one, our OL is real good, your Qb situation is great, your WR are ALRIGHT, but you guys need a RB. I dont think Willie Parker is real I also think you guys need a CB bad.

why do we need corners? just cause they don't get a lot of ints? they still doing a great job and they are underrated. we don't really need a running back yet, willie hasn't proven he's the for sure number one back for the future but he hasn't proven he can't be that for us either. he's growing and he's doing good for the number of carries he's getting. the ol is good for now but they are getting older so that's going to be a need on the first day of the draft

The Steelers will not need anything. They are going to win the next 5 Super Bowls.
