The Pittsburgh Steelers were in need of a great draft after losing veterans Hines Ward, Aaron Smith and James Farrior. Their depth was thin and they needed help in a lot of areas.
Not only did the Steelers have a good draft, they had a great draft, addressing three of their biggest needs with three of their first four selections.
Pittsburgh added two linemen who could be starting as soon as this year with guard David DeCastro and tackle Mike Adams. In the fourth, they found the future replacement for Casey Hampton by selecting Alameda Ta'amu.
The rest of the draft filled out the roster with role players, depth and special teamers. From top-to-bottom, this was the type of draft that the Steelers needed to replenish their team with young talent.
Though it is early, the roster which will enter training camp is nearly set. Here is a prediction of the final 53-man roster and depth chart.
