I say both, ILB,.LG, big physical WR. We have backs, we just need a physical or intelligent O line that can open up holes for our backs. Pick up a new O Line Coach get a solid running game going, get a physical WR that can make catches in traffic, and in the red zone and I promise we will be scoring four more points a game.

Also when Ben goes down for his typical 3 games every season, a run game is what well need to carry the offense, eat the clock and keep the opposing team off the field. It's time to start planning for the future without number 7 under center. At that starts with a great running game.

Why does everyone keep bringing up the backs we "have"? Baron Batch is the only Steeler running back under contract. If we sign and keep Redman and Dwyer, we still don't have a starting running back.

After much thought, i hope we can get an OLB pass rusher. That is our need, more pressure will equal TO's period. The rest will fall into place.

WR Da'Rick Rogers, Tennessee Tech in 2nd Round.
Quote:
Rogers is a virtual Julio Jones clone, exhibiting an exciting combination of size, strength and explosiveness.

He signed with Tennessee as one of the most highly regarded prep prospects in the entire country, and immediately showed off his versatility, racking up 167 yards as a receiver and 117 yards as a runner (reverses, etc.).

Rogers was expected to serve as the complementary piece to Justin Hunter in 2011, but stepped up once his teammate was injured and went on to lead the SEC with 1,040 receiving yards in 2011. He eclipsed the 100-yard mark in six games, one short of a Tennessee record, and earned First Team All-SEC honors by the media and league coaches.

While there are plenty of traits about Rogers scouts will love, one they must be concerned about is Rogers' accountability on and off the field. For violating team rules, Rogers was suspended indefinitely by Tennessee coach Derek Dooley on Aug. 23 and ultimately transferred to Tennessee Tech.

Rogers played in all 11 games for Tennessee Tech in 2012, and was the man among boys he was expected to be, leading the team with 61 catches for 893 yards and 10 touchdowns. No one else on the roster had more than 28 receptions, and Rogers put up his staggering numbers despite every opponent game-planning to contain him.
Other than the fact he had an issue at the Tennessee Volunteers and was suspended from their team and transferred, he's that Big, Physical WR we need. He made a mistake with drugs, most likely Marijuana and since has had no problems with it or any other off the field issues and said himself he was dumb.

Trust me, look at these highlights. He's a worthy second round pick.

I honestly don't care, even though I'd lean defense. I just want players who embody the Steeler tradition. We need more guys with heart and attitude and we most importantly need an influx of leadership material. They need to target guys who can fire this team up and get them to play as a team again, not a group of individuals trying to make themselves look good. Leadership is the main ingredient missing from this Steelers team right now.

Unfortunately, drafting a rookie who can come in and provide that immediately will be a daunting task. It may take a couple of years for a guy drafted in this upcoming draft to get acclimated and prove himself enough to his teammates to be able to be taken seriously as a leader.
