The Pittsburgh Steelers are next up in our Reader’s Mock Draft. The Steelers uncharacteristically missed the postseason in 2012 and will look to bounce back in 2013. It will be tough considering that top wide receiver Mike Wallace departed to Miami via Free Agency and the Steelers had to cut veteran linebacker James Harrison. Emmanuel Sanders could be headed to New England if the Steelers don’t match the restricted free agent’s offer from the Patriots.
Big Ben got pounded last season, so the Steelers could look to improve their offensive line or get a running back to take over for the departed Rashard Mendenhall. Safety Troy Polamalu is getting up there and seems to be hurt all the time, so could they look to improve their secondary?
Kenny Vaccaro, S, Texas
Ziggy Ansah, DE, BYU
DJ Fluker, OT, Alabama
Eddie Lacy, RB, Alabama
Keenan Allen, WR, California
