7 Quarterbacks Pittsburgh Steelers Could Take in Later Rounds of 2013 NFL Draft
Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports
If the Steelers draft Zac Dysert, he and Ben Roethlisberger will have a lot to talk about.

It looks like Charlie Batch will ride into the sunset a winner.

If that happens, the Pittsburgh Steelers might want to look for his replacement in the 2013 NFL draft.

The Pittsburgh Steelers' backup quarterback engineered a fourth-quarter comeback Sunday in Pittsburgh's 23-20 victory over the Baltimore Ravens, keeping the Steelers (7-5) in control of their playoff destiny.

The Steelers are targeting Sunday's game against the Chargers for Ben Roethlisberger's return from his rib and shoulder injuries. Batch, meanwhile, celebrates his 38th birthday this week.

This season could be Batch's swan song in Pittsburgh. That would leave Byron Leftwich and Brian Hoyer as Roethlisberger's backups.

Leftwich might be more deserving of the "Big Ben" moniker with his long windup that resembles the hands of a clock.

Roethlisberger's injury this season highlights the importance of a backup quarterback. Since taking Roethlisberger in 2004, the only quarterbacks the Steelers have drafted are Omar Jacobs in 2006 and Dennis Dixon in 2008. They'd like to get a little more out of the next quarterback they draft.

There are some they should take a look at in the mid to late rounds of the 2013 NFL Draft.
