Well since the Steelers lost, my draft coverage will begin now and I will start it off with the Steelers needs for the draft this year. Expect 1 to 2 posts per day four to five days a week all the way through the draft.
Number 1 Need: Offensive Guard
Our guard play was awful all year and it will be tough to win without good guard play. Whether it was Kemoatu, Legursky, Foster, or Essex they all played pretty poorly and an upgrade is needed, possibly two. With our higher draft position I think we might get a chance at the #1 Guard in the draft, David DeCastro and if we do, we should take him. I feel like we will address the guard spot somewhere in rounds 1 to 3 and then again in rounds 5 to 7.
After the jump see needs #2 through 7
Note: Even though it foucuses on the Pittsburgh Steelers, this is worth the read for Non-Steelers fans as well because it gives some insight into draft stock and some minor details on over 20 prospects (25 to be exact).
This is a draft piece focusing on key players of the Pittsburgh Steelers that will likely be retiring soon (within the next two years). I will first talk about the player who is retiring soon, then mention a possible 2012 replacement and a possible 2013 draft replacement. Or I will mention if the replacement is already possibly on the team.
Note: Make sure you have time to read all of it as it is a little over 2000 words.
