    and i repeat, the whole ILB room is different and much better as of now. these guys will be much better then we had. our backups are pretty good as well. we also have a better coach teaching them.

    not saying we won't add but CB as some have said aint empty by any means.

    nor is the DL.

    OT needs a depth player or two. could be easy enough to sign a guy like trent scott back or maybe cam erving. a later draft pick at maybe 81 would even serve them well. i keep bringing up bergeron.

    also a TE will go a long way in helping. we are preparing to build on this run game that made strides last year.

    to me it looks like they want a safety/corner type or a bigger corner that can do many things and support the run. kazee can handle the slot and maulet played well for us last year. i like the riley kid as well at safety. the cupboard isn't bare. :cool:

    I think the growing pains will be minimal, these guys are all seasoned Vets.

    Daniel’s and Cole were seasoned vets as well. Not to mention Dotson was in year three

    LoL. You do know You added a High Draft pick. I'm talking about if they listen to these people spending all the early draft picks on OL, Wrs, and TEs....then there is no High draft picks for CB

    I think first 2 picks will be OT and CB.... which order, we won't know until draft day. They should go BPA with either OT or CB at #17.... whichever grades the highest.

    This is all I'm getting at.
    CB must be highly sought after in this draft.

    If you want 3 starting CBs, then you are currently short 1.

    Last year Witherspoon reminded me of Pierre from the year before, All offseason we tried to convince ourselves that Pierre was going to develop into a starting CB and then the season started and we quickly realized he was not a starting CB. I think Wallace is a better CB than Witherspoon, and deserves to be called CB #2.

    They definitely need to draft another CB to round out the Top 3, but we currently have a Good 1 - 2 combo in Peterson and Wallace.

    And, is there a difference between a Slot and a Nickel CB? Do you need both?

    I am curious because of Matt Feiler. The first thing the Charges did with Feiler was immediately change him to guard.

    I would love to see Feiler come back to the Steelers as a backup offensive tackle.

    He was a starter. The only switch is P2 for Sutton.

    But no, not exactly ok, in all of my too many comments I am clamoring for a CB at 49. But I don’t think Wallace is bad.

    But as much as I’d like to double dip at CB, I just don’t think we have the draft capital vs. all the many holes we have to fill. So, hoping for one this year and next.

    that S from Alabama looks appetizing at #1, if he is there.

    I would not object to a Safety. Steelers need a Strong Safety more than TE, IMO. TE would be nice, but Steelers should sign Gentry for 1 year and worry about TE next year.

    Funny, do we need that 3rd CB or a starting strong safety. I know how you feel about Edmunds coming back as the starting SS
