    Steelers have some major issues. There OL must get better, it all starts in the trenches. Pouncey is legit but has had the injury bug. I still have faith in DeCastro. However, I don't trust Ramon Foster, Marcus Gilbert, or Mike Adams. If i'm the Steelers, i'm drafting an OT 1st rd and pursuing a legit RG in free agency. Do this and then have Gilbert/Adams fight for the other OT spot.

    Runningback will come around once Bell returns, I really like Le'Veon.

    As for WR - Brown & Sanders are average... nothing special. They're both fast, but neither are a feature WR. Markus Wheaton is perfect for the slot, but he's so raw. If i'm PIT, i'm looking for a WR in the 2nd round. Find a big target, like Justin Hunter or Alshon Jeffrey. Sanders is a FA after this year, I wouldn't pay him. Other FAs such as: Eric Decker, Hakeem Nicks, Kenny Britt, Danario Alexander, Anquan Boldin, or Kenny Britt may be more worth it. I could see Decker leaving DEN to get more targets, Danario Alexander would also be nice (just tore his ACL again though). Target Decker, pair up with Brown, Wheaton, and a 2nd rd WR. Now Ben has targets.

    Speaking of Big Ben, I think he still has 2-3 more years in the tank, plus they have Landry Jones to develop under him.

    Honestly, that D will always be good. Even when LeBeau leaves, he has so many people under him learning his way that they'll be OK. Jarvis Jones looks very talented. Taylor, Troy, and Clark are getting older. I'd invest a 3rd in a S or a CB.

    You do that above and I could see PIT back in the playoffs the following year.
