Safeties and linebackers and smokescreens

Digging into the visits of multiple draft prospect safeties suggests the team isn't satisfied with their depth at the position. Or maybe it's just all coated in smoke.

Steelers host Washington State S Deone Bucannon

The Steelers are dipping into safeties in their pre-draft visits. Bucannon is a hard-hitting athlete who was a finalist for the Jim Thorpe award this year.

Steelers pre-draft visits: Safety Calvin Pryor

The Louisville safety checks things out with the Steelers, a team not likely to take a safety around where the Steelers are drafting in the first two rounds.

Steelers pre-draft visit: LB Ryan Shazier

The Steelers have typically liked former Buckeyes in the draft. Shazier likely wouldn't be their pick at No. 15 overall, but he'd make a fine addition to the team, regardless of his draft position.

Steelers receive three comp picks, one third round

The losses of Mike Wallace, Keenan Lewis, Rashard Mendenhall and Ryan Mundy equated into an additional third, fifth and sixth round pick for the Steelers.

Compensatory picks expected to be announced Monday

The Steelers are expected to get a third round pick for the loss of Mike Wallace in 2013, and could get another two or three picks on top of that in later rounds.

Mock Draft: Steelers add CB Roberson in second

After adding Kelvin Benjamin in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft, the Steelers pick up Florida's long and lanky Marcus Roberson in the second, filling two positions of need with their first two picks.

Steelers didn't make Sanders an offer

One report says he will sign with the Broncos, another hints he was in Kansas City when that deal was made, but the constant is the Steelers didn't even make an offer for Sanders after essentially giving up a third round pick for him in 2013.

Report: Browns may trade for Revis

An Ian Rapoport report suggests Cleveland may be willing to make a trade for Bucs cornerback Darrelle Revis, giving them what would likely be the best cornerback tandem in the NFL.

Reader Correspondence: Flipping on Nix

One reader takes exception to recent criticism from BTSC in regards to Todd McShay's flip-flop on Notre Dame NT Louis Nix.

Report: Steelers sign Will Allen

It will be Allen's 11th season in the NFL, and the third straight year in Pittsburgh. He very well could be the team's starting free safety as well, but a battle for that spot with Shamarko Thomas can be expected.

Steelers trades: Grabbing the Sharknado

The Steelers pulled off a rare inter-division trade during the 2013 NFL Draft, dealing a third round pick in 2014 to move up in the 2013 draft and select Shamarko Thomas.
