Right now, the Pittsburgh Steelers have eight selections in the 2013 draft.
With needs such as outside linebacker, inside linebacker, running back, wide receiver, defensive tackle, safety, cornerback and along the offensive line, eight picks is probably not enough to fill all of their needs with decent talent.
The Steelers do have a weapon in their arsenal in the 17th overall pick. In a draft that is deep in talent at the positions where they are looking, moving closer to the end of the round might be a smart play.
It would also allow the team to get an extra pick or two in the process. If a good deal for the pick comes in on draft day, Steelers GM Kevin Colbert would be foolish to pass on it.
The priority is to fill as many holes as possible with young talent. Not all of it will stick, but some of it will. That is the start of the reloading that must be done over the next couple of years to set this team up for another period of dominance like they enjoyed almost continuously from 2001 until 2011.
It starts this year with this draft. Now is the time for Colbert to prove once again that he's one of the best general managers in sports.
