Pro Football Weekly throws out a tidbit about the Steelers looking at defense in the draft this April:
Pittsburgh could be defensive-minded in the upcoming draft for a variety of reasons. Keep an eye on the situation at nose tackle where Casey Hampton could be re-signed, but he turns 33 in September, and backup Chris Hoke turns 34 in April. Also, the need for more playmakers in the secondary became apparent when SS Troy Polamalu missed most of the season. Not many starting jobs are for the taking next season on defense, but the Steelers need to be thinking about the future of the unit.
