Steelers playing MoneyBall?

Forgive the lack of a link, but i read something on espn.com about the GM of sanfran being much more of a nerd thN a 'football insider'. that he attends an annual forum by one of the ivy league schools sharing notes on advanced statistics in fb to pursue the unrealized, if not unthinkable; moneyball in the NFL.. excerpted conclusion: draft linemen and only sign skill positions like rb's to incentive-laden contracts..

i write this to bring to mind how 6 of our last 8 top draft picks have all been linemen.. this especially.after ben's quasi famous address to the O-line whilst clutching lombardi #6: "Who's talkin now (mostly undrafted guys)??!!...but i digress. there is no denying the pattern, and maybe, just maybe, there is some insight to the 'new' FO strategy as we all enter the last.5 yrs.of Ben's greatness
