Going forward, We pass on Wallace and promote Sanders. Maybe keep Plax one more year if Gilreath doesn't show any flashes.

Mendy is gone, and I clean out most of the other backs. I would keep 1 from Redman, Dwyer, or Batch. It really doesn't matter too much which one, because they're all shit in their own special way.

I expect Troy to retire, or at least get a pay cut, because he hasn't been worth half of his paycheck for the past year and a half. Same with Harrison, but he only started to suck this year. Hampton gone for sure, along with Charlie Batch, who belongs in the Smithsonian.
I think Dwyer could be a feature back if given the carries. He's got two 100-yard games this year, one last year, and two more this year (Balt and Den) where he was on his way but had his carries limited to 9 and 12.

There's at least 9-10 LBs that are projected as 1st rounders. I think they get one of those LBs. So I doubt the Steelers waste a 1st pick on a RB... doubt they even pick one up in the draft. The current RBs are young enough to improve, So I wouldn't want to draft a RB who would be a "project" at best. Wouldn't want to draft a back up QB either, since they signed Hoyer. Maybe draft a tall WR in the Later rounds, if Wallace Doesn't resign.

Priorities are S, OLB & ILB I'd think.
