The Steelers drafted RB Rashard Mendenhall and WR Limas Sweed in rounds one and two of today’s draft.
The consensus is that they are sticking to their credo of drafting the best players on the board. The team did not expect either of these men to slip to them, and they felt both were too good to pass up.
While both men can help the Steelers, Pittsburgh needs to seriously look at drafting offensive and defensive lineman on day two of the draft, in the 3rd and 4th rounds especially.
Offensive line is particularly critical. The Steelers invested serious money in Ben Roethlisberger, and they desperately need to improve the protection around him.
