Looking Ahead to the 2009 Draft

I'm writing this to go along with my last post about the Steelers running game because I think that another good point came up in the discussion thread.  Part of the reason the Steelers have been somewhat ineffective when running the ball this season is because of a downright pourous offensive line.  In my opinion, I'd like to see the Steelers spend not just one or two, but a handful of picks on offensive linemen.  Additionally, a big fullback who could block for Parker would be nice to have in the backfield.

With all due respect to Bruce Ariens, I'd honestly like to see the Steelers return to their old smashmouth ways of playing football.  I think anyone would agree that Ben, and any other quarterback out there does better with an effective ground game.

...an effective ground game, however, begins with a stellar offensive line...hence my point above...
