Where's the beef?

3:34 p.m. - Defensive line coach John Mitchell's head has to be spinning right about now as the Steelers have done nothing to address their defensive line in this draft.

With two picks left, one of them has to be a d-lineman.

The favorites right now are Wallace Gilberry from Alabama, Eric Foster from Rutgers or Keilan Dykes from WVU. But Foster and Dykes are NT-types and the Steelers' real need is at end.

Hmmm... I'm getting the feeling negotiations with Booger Mcfarland are about to start up again.

Provided he passes a physical this time, of course...

Foster a NT type? he weighs ~260 lbs - he would have been an OLB in the 3-4, but I don't think he's fast enough.
