IMO, going into the draft the Steelers top needs will be:
1) WR/CB (depends on which of Wallace or Lewis leave) - I'd rather keep Lewis since I think WR will be easier to replace. You need 3 starting CB's in this league as well. Sanders isn't to be trusted so our depth will be severly depleted with Wallace gone.
2) OLB - Cutting Woodley doesn't save us anything on the cap, Harrison needs to accept a reduction (not a restructure) on his salary or he's gone.
3) S - As nice as it was to see Troy flying around against the Bengals, can we really trust him to do that next year?
NT, ILB, RB
There's a ton of decent RB's in free agency this year, a lot of which are better than Dwyer or Redman. The biggest problem with them is that it takes them 2 seconds to get to the line of scrimmage. Holes aren't generally open for that long. Guys that you could get on the cheap: Felix Jones, Beanie Wells since he may be cut, Justin Forsett. I'd like to see Jones added, then Christine Michael in the mid rounds.
