Yep, pretty much...(lol). I sure hope we all like Santonio Holmes. No worries with Ben as our QB and his corp of WRs. Let's just hope our running game doesn't suffer.

Sorry just couldnt help myself! I liked their draft actually, filled a need and added a little depth for us to work on IMO.

I agree, we selected players that fit our needs. I felt like maybe a corner would have helped but we addressed our areas of need.

I liked the draft overall. Some picks I didn't care for. The OT from Hofstra and the C in the sixth round. But hey the Steelers made a bold move and got my man Santonio in the first. Picked up a good safety in the third with Anthony Smith in the third. Also Willie Reid will be El's replacement on punt returns. Harris and Jacobs were great value picks. Humes could be the power back in the future and he was taken in the 7th. Thought the Steelers could have spent some more picks on defense but oh well.

About the Steelers not taking a corner. Ike really came into his own last year. Townsend was resigned and is solid. McFadden had a good rookie year. I think the Steelers coaches are hoping that Ricardo Coclough has the same third lead that Ike Taylor had. Ricardo will be in his third year this upcoming year like Ike was last year.

As far as instatnt help, just one player, I didn`t want to look at it like you did, but you are close. I think we got rid of the 2nd round because we were being fruggle also

I think the reason it seems that way is because we didn't have any huge needs. We addressed basically everything we needed to and will probably pick up more undrafted FA's. Overall I'm happy with our draft.

Right on.. we had no glaring needs of players to step in right now and start..and we had alot of picks. Makes sense to package them together to get the best guys possible who can make the team.

We dont have many needs. Thats whats happens when you win the Super Bowl :). I feel that we got pretty much what we should have gotten. Obviously you can improve in places, but where we NEEDED players, we got them.
