How Much Is At Stake For The Pittsburgh Steelers In The Draft?

Pittsburgh Steelers v Oakland Raiders

NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt, a longtime Vice President of player personnel for the Cowboys, has written a good article about the upcoming NFL Draft that includes some good thoughts about the Steelers.

The article, on NFL.com, is entitled 2014 NFL Draft: Steelers, Bears among teams with tons at stake.

Here’s a portion of what Brandt says about the Steelers:

Ben Roethlisberger is 32. Troy Polamalu is about to turn 33. Ike Taylor will be 34 in May. Heath Miller is 31. Pittsburgh’s core players are clearly getting up there in age — and unfortunately for the Steelers, they don’t have a ton of young talent waiting in the wings. Aside from Le’Veon Bell, a second-round pick last year, Pittsburgh hasn’t drafted especially well recently.
