When your starting RT is 3rd round pick with little experience, theres a problem.Also the depth is bad. Barret Brooks is not good enough.With everyone worrying about OLB and WR, i believe a OT is our biggest need followed by a tie with DE AND CB at #2. The 6-10 year with Todd Fordhm and an underachieving Oliver Ross at RT was a nightmare.They thought they could get by with unproven talent then also.Any thoughts and comments are appreciated.

I think you hit that one right on, the Steelers have a QB who needs time, it made Big Ben look like a veteran last year, if the line is bad he won't look as good, the running game should still be strong......if the line is.... I think with a good pick or two this team could be a superbowl champ.

your the first to actually agree with me.i know O-line and D-line picks aren't the flashiest but those picks are the reason the steelers are one of the best teams in the league.
With this 3 round mock of the steelers, i think a Super Bowl Ring is quite possible.

1. Chris Terry-OT Syracuse-Solid starter for years
2. Matt Jones-WR/TE Arkansas- Physical Specimen. Can be used as steelers see fit.Also wouldn't mind DE Chris Canty whose a great 3-4 end.
3.Brandon Jacobs-RB Southern Illinois- If Bettis retires, definite need, possibly higher.Even if he doesn't, bettis is up there in age, staley is good but injury prone, parker and haynes are unproven as full-time backs.

Ohhhhhhhh yeah.

I think that Elton Brown could help in this area. I know he played G but I think he has the ability to move to RT. He has real good athletism for a guy that big. He can destroy in the run game but probaly needs some help being outside in Pass Protection.



Who knows.....June 1st cuts might land us some depth.

i'd rather not wait on the chance to get an over-paid veteran or an unproven player. Good idea though.

The Elton Brown idea is a good one.Never thought of that. He might be there when the Steelers pick.

He could be this years version of Max Starks.
