Default Who do you want on day 2 of the draft?

round 2- would love to see harris, williams, dowling or browm here, if not then ot ben ijalana

my guess
i'll say in the steeler way we take ben ijalana ot villanova



round 3- another cb sure would be nice, most likely a depth pick though for ol
maybe a tall wr?

my guess
round 3 - i'll say my guess would be we finally take a corner,

the only spots that truly need addressing are o line and cb now, obviously along with depth,

i doubt we take a wr even though a big tall wr could be nice, (maybe wes lyons will pan out) heres to hoping for that

I am surprised at how many think the defense should be the first priority. An inconsistent offense has been the biggest problem, IMO. If the Steelers had even a better than average offensive line that could protect the qb, they would be the team to beat. The d has had to play lights out to keep them in games because the offense can't score consistently. And that is asking to much. In todays NFL, you won't win many games if your d is asked to hold teams like Green Bay, New Orleans, New England, Indy etc., to less than 20 points.

You're right, I'm not going to hold my breath on Sweed, but I'm going to keep a little hope alive. As for Lyons, he would be good for goal line situations.
