Default Team Needs

What does everybody think our top 5 needs are in order that we should target in the draft
Mine are:
1. Secondary
2. Defensive Line
3. Offensive Line
4. Linebacker
5. Runningback (in the event of fwp departure)

If Casey signs
1a. O line - top 20 talent that will anchor the steeler line for 10 years
1b. Free Safety - backup in 2010, replaces Ryan Clark in 2011
1c. Strong Safety - immediate backup with good coverage skills
1d Outside Linebacker - immediate backup with good pass rush skills
1e. Late round Special teams sleeper - someone who doesnt have great measurables but is just a player. Kamikaze approach to special teams play and overachieves in all aspects of the game. ( competes at strong safety or inside linebacker)

If Casey doesnt sign
1a. NT - top 20 talent that will anchor the steeler line for 10 years
1b. Free Safety - backup in 2010, replaces Ryan Clark in 2011
1c. Strong Safety - immediate backup with good coverage skills
1d Outside Linebacker - immediate backup with good pass rush skills
1e. Late round Special teams sleeper - someone who doesnt have great measurables but is just a player. Kamikaze approach to special teams play and overachieves in all aspects of the game. ( competes at strong safety or inside linebacker)

Depending on Casey this yea.rs first round pick needs to anchor a BIG line. Joe Haden / Rolando McClain / Earl Thomas would be bonus picks if they eventuated

going into next season we have three good ILBs signed. If one gets injured we still function as a team

We only have 2 good OLBs and if one goes down we are screwed.

Thats the reason for my selection. We have 10 picks ( my guess) in the draft and ILB needs to be one of them. I would have put ILB at #6 on my list
