Upon further review ... who needs the draft.


The steelers went a long way to solidify their roster yesterday. In a move that was extremly uncharacteristic, the steelers actually made moves in free agency. The additions of Randle El and Battle have pretty much closed the book on the Limas Sweed Experiment. Tyrone Carter's surely gone, replaced by a younger, capable backup/potential future starter. Retaining Ryan Clark means that all the 2009 starters will be back for the 2010 season. The steelers are also attempting to bring back Larry Foote and probably will. At this point i wouldn't be surprised if FWP were back in Black and Gold by the begining of next week.

Now if we sign Foote and FWP, what the hell are we going to do with all those draft picks. I see the steelers receiving two compensatory picks on top of the seven pciks they already have. By next week the roster should look something like this:

QB: Ben, Dixon

RB: Mendy, FWP, MEMO, Logan, Redman

TE: Miller, McHugh, Spaeth, Johnson

WR: Ward, Holmes, Wallace, Randle El, Battle, Sweed, London, Grisham

OL: Starks, Kemo, Hartwig, Essex, Colon, Scott, Foster, Legursky, Hills, Urbik

DL: Hampton, Hoke, Smith, Keisel, Hood, Harris

LB: Farrior, Timmons, Woodley, Harrison, Fox, Foote, Bailey, Frazier

CB: Ike, Gay, Burnett, Lewis, Pittman, Madison

S: Troy, Clark, Allen, Mundy

ST: Reed, Sepulveda, Retkofsky

Thats 56 realistically possible cadidates for the 53 man roster. Now add nine draft picks to that. I don't see anyone drafted after the third round making the roster. With that in mind, i say trade up for either Berry, Hayden or Bulaga.

What ya think.
