Default 7-2?

Seven offensive players to only two defensive? Seems a little odd for the Steelers. Is this a youth movement on offense to go with Ben and Heath? If it works you could see an offense that would dominate the division for years, but at what expense to the D?

Gotta agree with Cleve. The D will get taken care of in next year's draft. The last 4 years the FO has been right on when it comes to draft day.

Our D seems pretty solid already. Between players like Troy, Deshea, Joey, and James we are pretty strong on D and we added a new safety to replace Hope. We needed a #2 receiver, a punt returner, and some runnin game depth, we covered that. It'll be all good. Peace.

Our D isn't in that bad of shape right now that we needed to draft a ton of defensive players.

We have a great core of Linebackers right now in Porter,Farrior,Foote and Haggans.

We basicly have our linebackers of the future in Harrison,Kreidwaldt,Frazier, and Wallace.Plus we just signed UDA Mike Kudla of Ohio State who can play DE or LB in our system.

At DB we have the best saftey in the league Troy Polamalu,and he'll probally finish his career with the Steelers.Hopefully we can get Ike Taylor inked long term by the end of TC.Then we have McFadden who will end up starting at CB if not this year,next year.Anthony Smith will probally start at FS next year and be a force to be reckoned with.Plus we still have Iwuoma and Coke.We also have Townsend who is a very good CB and will provide veteran leadership when he is no longer starting.

On the DL we have Keisel and Smith on the edges with Hampton taking up at least two blockers at nose tackle.Once again we just signed Mike Kudla who can play end or linebacker in our system.We have Hoke at NT behind Hampton.

So as you can see,we are pretty set on the defensive side of the ball for now and probally years to come.When it comes time to fill holes and needs,we'll draft for that then.This year,we didn't really need two.Our two biggest holes were replacing Randle El and Chris Hope,and we did that in the draft.

I agree our defense is solid right now. We signed a good bit of our guys that we needed to back. I think we had more needs to address on offense.

Kudla has what like a 4.9 40 ? ? Looks pretty slow for a LB and too small for a DE.

Harris is gonna be a force, he was more dominate in college than wilfok, look at wilfork has done for the pats. DL is set, we really need to resign Taylor to a big deal, he's young and upcoming unlike the last time we signed cbs' to big deals (Scott and Washington) who were both older, Taylor is 25 i think, sign him for a 5 year extension, and we'll be in the playoffs at least for 5 more years

Kudla ran a 4.7 at the combine, and Kamerion Wimbley ran a 4.61. So he's a little less than a 10th of a second slower than the Browns first round hopes and dreams for an OLB, and that's not football speed.

As for the offensive picks, every now and then, even the most defensive of teams need to load up a little on offense.
