If you could add any one NFL player to the Steelers roster who would it be? Any player that plays on another NFL team. Which player would have the biggest impact on the Steelers roster? Why?

Adrian Peterson?
Von Miller?

von for me and its not really close. his elite pressure would really ease the transition we are going to be facing in the secondary over the next couple seasons.

Didn't realize Luke Kuechly led the NFL with 164 total tackles. Along with 10 pd, 2 int, and 3 fumble recoveries. That was a heck of a pick for Carolina.

Richard Sherman. That dude is the complete package as a DB. Excellent in coverage, excellent in run support and he's a turnover machine. We need playmakers; Sherman is the perfect example.

JJ Watt. He's the ideal guy to build your front seven around. Under the Steelers system, he would be so dominant, our front seven would be unstoppable. Since it's only a matter of time before we have another elite OLB.

I'd have to go with Calvin Johnson. To me it would be down to Johnson or Peterson with Johnson getting the nod because it's harder to get that premier WR that can do everything than a RB. As much as a dominant run game would be nice, putting Johnson with Big Ben would be amazing. Another thing I have always loved about Johnson is the fact that he isn't a diva.

There are a lot of defensive players that would help too, especially with the pass rush or in the secondary, but our defense has been so good already I think we sometimes take that for granted as to how good they've actually been.

I'm not gonna go into all of what Johnson is as a player because you already know, but having not just a true #1 WR, but an elite #1 WR with his height/speed/ability... Nothing more Ben could ask for

I agree that Calvin Johnson is the complete package LMdJ. Love his game and also his attitude, or lack thereof. Having a super talented WR that is not a diva would be very refreshing.

Curtain you are right, JJ Watt would be a beast for us. Can only imagine building around him.

J.J. Watt. He's the most complete defensive player in the game. A 3-4 DE who can do it all.

Calvin Johnson. I think this offense would be so much better than the Lions. We would actually run the ball and Ben wouldn't turn it over as much. We would be scary. Match that with a solid D and we are top 4 every year.

JJ Watt if Lebeau utilized him correctly. Von Miller would be a great 2nd choice as would Patrick Willis. Dangg, this is too hard! Based on my favorite non-Steelers player, it's Fitzgerald!

Good idea for a thread btw, wish there was a poll though! Wink

While it would certainly be fun to have a Megatron, I think I'd rather see the return of our dominating defense. LeBeau having a guy like Watt to work with would be every QB in the NFL's worst nightmare.
