There will be a few changes to the Pittsburgh Steelers starting lineup in 2013.

One reason for that is the Steelers want to improve after an 8-8 season. The other reason is that five 2012 starters are no longer with the team.

Not surprisingly, free agency has taken a toll on the Steelers' starting corps.

Mike Wallace went to the Miami Dolphins, Rashard Mendenhall went to the Arizona Cardinals and Keenan Lewis went to the New Orleans Saints.

The Steelers released Willie Colon and James Harrison, and they're not expected to bring back unrestricted free agents Casey Hampton and Max Starks. That would make seven 2012 starters who are wearing other uniforms, or waiting for a call, in 2013.

In some cases, the Steelers will fill their starting vacancies by promoting from within. In other cases, the Steelers will acquire their 2013 starters in the NFL draft or free agency.

Now that the initial free-agent frenzy has died down, here's a look at the Steelers' projected starting lineup when the 2013 season begins in less than six months.
