well a case could be made for any but d-line is the area we're most thin at. kiesel and smith are very late in their careers, and who knows how long we can rely on them to stay healthy? hampton is also getting old. Hoke is good but behind him who else can play DT? Though since we run a 3-4 I'm sure we can get potential quality replacements in rd 2-4

Hoke is also older than Casey, Eason is old-ish and injury prone as a backup, imagine if he was a starter. Hood could turn out to be good or atleast decent. There aren't really any options.
But Smith was a 4th rounder, Keisel I think was undrafted or atleast a very late pick, and before him Kimo was from the Bengals and also a late pick. Hampton was a first rounder, so if there is a great nose tackle in the draft the Steelers will take him first round.

The problem with Hood was that he was more of a Warren Sapp type defensive tackle. Sapp took 3 years to get used to being a 3-4 defensive end, but he hated it and it ultimitately caused him to retire. Coaching staff needs to buckle down and find a selfless player to take that role.

You can say what you want about taking DBs in the 1st but I am tired of this "late game rally against our secondary bullsh$t"!!! I want a shut down corner so Troy doesn't have to cheat all the time to save their azzes....
