Stephon Tuitt

Stephon Tuitt is a behemoth. Tuitt stands well over 6 feet tall and weighs just over 300 pounds. He is the Pittsburgh Steelers second round pick and he is going to give offensive lines nightmares this season. Tuitt coming in seemingly ends the Brett Keisel days in Pittsburgh, but I’m okay with that and anyone who reads this should be too.

Ben Roethlisberger

Ben Roethlisberger has built quite an impressive legacy as a Steeler. Ben has always been a personal favorite of mine. Why? Because aside from the two sexual assault incidents, the guy is a great role model. And to be fair, he probably did not do anything without consent. I’m sure alcohol was involved and when that happens, things happen. But that’s neither here nor there.

The 10-year anniversary of the Pittsburgh Steelers drafting Ben recently passed. The Miami of Ohio product has come a long way as a Steeler, a man, and an NFL player. Roethlisberger is a first ballot Hall of Famer.

Kyle Van Noy

The Pittsburgh Steelers have put themselves into a very uncomfortable situation — mediocrity and lacking talent. Regardless of why, several positions are in dire need of help. Most would agree on the positions that need addressed — wide receiver, cornerback, defensive line.

Others feel as if inside linebacker, safety, offensive line and tight end are areas of need. I agree with all, but there are only so many picks that can be used in a single draft. Just because you need all of these things doesn’t mean that you draft one of each. Most draft picks will not work out anyway and some may not even make it through training camp. The Steelers must find contributors.

Tyrann Mathieu

This is possibly one of the deepest draft classes in the the last 10 years. This is something that should seriously be taken advantage of. One must take these words with a grain of salt, and realize that this does not apply to every position, but simply caters to the strengths of the positions and opines that they outweigh the weakness of others. The Pittsburgh Steelers must take calculated risks.

Marqise Lee

It’s no question that there are two big gaps the Pittsburgh Steelers need to fill in the draft. Those gaps are wide receiver and defensive back.

Outside of Lance Moore and Antonio Brown, the receiving corps does not impress. Darrius Heyward-Bey was signed, but he’s prone to dropping the ball. Derek Moye showed some positive signs last year, but also dropped some balls. The only other viable option the Steelers have right now is Markus Wheaton.

Mike Evans

Due to some extremely surprising non-impactful drafts, the Pittsburgh Steelers are in desperate need of some immediate impact to change their fortunes.

Their is a dire need at several positions and depth is a screaming issue for the Steelers. I’ll pinpoint some players that should be available when the Steelers pick or should be within reach to obtain through a trade of picks.

Darrius Heyward-Bey

On Wednesday, the Pittsburgh Steelers agreed to terms with former Colts wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey on a one-year deal. That now makes the Steelers a bit deeper at the wide receiver position. However, it does not necessarily make them any better.

Ben Roethlisberger and Le'Veon Bell

The Pittsburgh Steelers have not made any huge splashes this offseason in free agency. That is partially due to their current cap situation, but that may not be the only reason. It seems like the Steelers feel fine with the way last year ended.

As most remember, the Steelers started the season 2-6. However, the team ended the season at 8-8, going 6-2 in their final eight games. That’s a complete 180 degree turnaround from the first eight games. It’s apparent that the Steelers as an organization feel they were right there last year. They aren’t wrong, either. The Steelers were in it until the very end and narrowly missed the postseason. So what exactly is the plan?

Lance Moore

Late Friday afternoon, it was announced that Lance Moore signed a two-year contract with the Steelers. This comes just a day after the Steelers lost Jerricho Cotchery to the Carolina Panthers.

This was another good signing by the Steelers because it strengthens their receiving corps. After losing Emmanuel Sanders and eventually Cotchery, Thursday night, the Steelers top three receivers were Antonio Brown, Markus Wheaton, and Derek Moye. But, Moore adds some depth to that receiving core. Now, it’s Brown, Moore, and Wheaton as the top three wideouts for Pittsburgh.

Emmanuel Sanders

On Saturday night, free agent wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders inked a three-year, $15 million deal with the Denver Broncos. The Broncos just recently lost Eric Decker, arguably one of the best wide receivers in the NFL, to the New York Jets. Sanders, now a former Steeler, appears to be his replacement. Yes, the Broncos have Wes Welker and Demaryius Thomas, but the Broncos took a huge step back as far as depth at wideout.
