The Steelers rested him this year for a reason. The Steelers restructured his contract for a reason. The Steelers have publicly put their collective faith in Duce as filling Bettis' role for the '06 season for a reason.

it would cost more than 2 -1st rounders cause our #1 this year is essentially a high #2 and we can expect our #1 next year to be the same. i think it would cost around 4 picks and maybe just 1 would be a 3rd rounder or lower. too pricey just to move up in the 1st round. i understand why the steelers moved up for polamalu. they recognized hes a player that comes along maybe once every 10 years. steelers will have plenty of opportunities to get another young rb. sure i would love lendale to be a steeler, just like i would alexander or e. james. theyre just to pricey and its a bigtime longshot.

As much as I love Lendale there is no possible way that we will be able to pick him up. Now if he didn't do so well in the rose bowl well he would probably be in our grasp, but that's not the case. The player that I would move up for if he lands in the 20's is Broderick Bunkley. This dude is a beast. He could be first year starter in replace of Kimo. It would take 4 lineman to block him and Hampton. Our Sacks would double from last year with this guy. Unfortunately I doubt we move up for him. Our realistic and good picks are Nick Mangold the Center from OSU or Bobby Carpenter - Linebacker from OSU. Both are needed badly. Joey will be gone after this year and we need a big quick LB who can wreck some havoc. Also Hartings is old and Nick Mangold is a beast. Great hands and feet and strong enough. Those 2 will more than likely be our picks in the first

Mangold is off the board, as we have Okobi already promised Hartings job.

Cedric Humes is still a player in Rd 3 as Duce's replacement.
