Default Steelers Draft Needs Changed?

With the improved run blocking the last two weeks and pass protection seemly being 100 % better. Has the draft needs of The Steelers changed?

I know its extremely early but just about every major draft site has The Steelers drafting an offensive lineman (seems like its been that way for the past 3 years).

Hartwig and Kemo are signed and Urbik and Shipley are in the wings. Colon is seemly due a huge pay day. SO if it isn't Oline then what?

Im guessing Dline especially if Hampton cannot be retained.

DE--our starters are over 30 and we need to groom their successors

S--Same as DE

Other than that, just get good athletes and plug them in as needed.

i wouldn't get too excited over finding a little success against crappy D fronts. as soon as they go up against the vikings, the reality and 2 yds a carry avg will set back in.
NOT drafting linemen for the future is the reason for the pile of suck in front of the qb to begin with. are you suggesting they continue the trend ?

I think we look at D-line also, but still think a blue-chip O-linemen is a must. I would love to see us trade up for Cody.

Terrence Cody, NT, Alabama
I got a lot of heat for saying Cody was a second-round prospect, but maybe I was being nice. At best he looks like a second-rounder. Sure, he is huge, but he has literally no range and doesn't make much of an impact if teams don't run right at him. He is very slow and not the same athlete that a Vince Wilfork or B.J. Raji is. Cody lacks stamina and I highly doubt he goes in the first round.
woohoo...one of my TERPS !!!

Quote:
Bruce Campbell, T, Maryland
Campbell made a huge impression on me on game tape against clemson. He has quick feet, was strong at the point of attack, played with a strong base, and mirrored his feet well against the pass rush. I loved his awareness. He picked up a nickle and weakside LB blitz with ease.

He has impressive athletic ability and handled Clemson DE Ricky Sapp's speed off the edge without any problem. He has very imposing size and looks to have NFL left tackle tools. Once, he did a poor job bending at the waist too much against the run. However, I was extremely impressed with his tape in this game and I think he is a potential top-10 pick.
Quote:
Rolando McClain, ILB, Alabama
After this game I convinced myself how difficult it is to evaluate an inside linebacker in the 3-4 at the college level. These players don't have a lot of space to make plays and they have to fight through a ton of trash. McClain wasn't lazy, but he didn't make a ton of plays. At times he flashes brillance with great closing speed. Other times, he takes poor angles against the run. By default, he looks like the No. 1 inside linebacker in the nation, which isn't saying much.

I tend to agree with you, but if you consider that Starks, Kemo, Hartwig just signed new deals this offseason and Colon is considered by some as the best O lineman on the team............it appears the FO is satasfied with the current O line.

I think we see Urbik, Foster as being heir to the RG job and maybe Essex or Hills becomes the RT if Colon isnt extended. I still wanna see an OT drafted, but doubt its gonna be in the 1st round unless somebody falls to us.

QB and a RB, because Ben holds the ball waaaay too long, and Mendy is definately a bust
