Default Steelers build for the future

The Steelers draft picks are clearly for a strong Steeler team over the next few years. Cam and Marcus will be nice additions and strengthen both the offensive and defensive lines.

I had hoped the Steelers would try for another Superbowl run. In order to do that, the Steelers needed to draft a CB who could start this year. They didn't do that. With the glaring deficiencies in the secondary, the Steelers are a wildcard team at best.

If the Steelers want to make a run at the SB, they need to fix the secondary. The Packers and Patriots already showed the league how to beat the Steelers. The best the Steelers can hope for is to sign Taylor and hope that Butler and Lewis improve their play.

I think they should draft Brandon Burton. He is a project, but he has height and speed to excel.

Like this past season, when they were a 2 seed? The secondary has been suspect for a while now. It's not a new development. It becomes especially apparent when Troy is out of action for an extended period (see 2009) or is not 100% (see 2010 playoffs).

Lol! So we can't make it back to the SB or even win the division because we didn't sell the farm to move up or reach for a CB that wasn't worth pick 31. No, we will just have to suffer watching last season's #1 overall defense get torched because they didn't go into panic mode after losing a game to the Packers.

Yes, I know, "the Steelers always struggle against elite QBs." That's my favorite quote. As if that wasn't a given. EVERY DEFENSE struggles against elite QBs! That's what makes them elite.

Our secondary needs work but it's not going to hinder a SB run. We all wish we had a pro bowler at every position, but that's a fantasy. We'll make the most out of what we have, like always, and that will keep us in the hunt for a SB. Can't ask for more than that, at least not realistically.

And every team has a Brady or a Rodgers?

No, I think he just stated a fact.

We have problems being spread out by the more elite passing teams (Elite not being better but Elite meaning they have a good slot receiver and a QB who can throw quickly and accurately)

Not doom or gloom just a fact.
