Up next, with pick #23, are the Pittsburgh Steelers.  For Steelers insight and analysis, head over to Behind the Steel Curtain.  Below are Pittsburgh's draft needs, courtesy of NFL Draft Countdown:

1. Offensive Guard: They allowed one of the best o-guards in the league (Alan Faneca) to leave as a free agent and they really don't have anyone who's capable of replacing him currently on the roster.
2. Offensive Tackle: Max Starks was named their transition player so he will be around for one more year but his long-term future is in doubt and Marvel Smith will be a free agent next offseason as well.
3. Wide Receiver: Plaxico Burress used to be Ben Roethlisberger's favorite target and "Big Ben" misses him. He has even gone public with his request for a big, physical presence for their passing game.
