Thumbs down the steelers need to address DL, ILB, or DB before the 3rd round and contrary to popular belief Pouncey is a reach and unworthy of a top 20 selection and the steelers DO NOT NEED A WR.

Mister I am not sure where you have been the last week or so, but the Steelers just lost 1/2 of their starting WR's in Santonio Holmes heading to the Jets. And for you to say that Pouncey is Not Worth at Top 20 pick is going against all the Draft Experts and I'll take their word over yours any day.

Pouncey and Lafell and Rolle are my favorites and love those picks. I may be wrong but I dont think that Rolle will last til round 5, but maybe. La Garrett Blount would be a very interesting pick and I wouldnt mind it at all.

They do not need a WR. They have:
Hines Ward- all-time leading reciever
Mike Wallace- young player on the rise
Antwann Randel El- Great role player for the black and gold in his 1st tenure
Arnaz Battle- A veteran who looks to be a good role player.
They have pressing needs at DL ,ILB, and DB, they need to address those positions 1st

Yes, the Steelers need to draft a WR but IMO they don't need to draft one in the 2nd round. There's quality WRs that can be had later in the draft such as Andre Roberts.

I've heard quite a few of the 'Draft Experts' say that Pouncey isn't worth a top 20 pick. Pretty much all of them have said that he's not as good as either of the centers taken in the first round last year (Mack, #21 & Wood, #28). Centers just aren't taken that early.

I like Pouncey and it's certainly a position of need but I'd rather have a top CB in the 1st and then take a C like Tennant later.

Linval Joseph would be a great pick but I doubt if he'll be available in the 4th. I'd be happy to get him or Torrell Troup in the 3rd.

Hines ward- is 34 and not getting any younger (or faster) and you will have to replace him eventually. Mike Wallace- a real game breaker but will need a deep threat on the other side if he's to stay that way. Antwann Randel El - not much younger than Ward, not near as good and not as good as he was in 2005. Arnaz Battle- Brought in for special teams- PERIOD . The only thing that would totally negate a need for a WR in the draft, would be Limas Sweed starting to live up to his high pick status and start catching everything thrown at him. I doubt the steelers will roll the dice on that happening.
