11. Pittsburgh Steelers
The Steelers have a very rich history at linebacker, but the overall production of the group wasn't great last year -- especially from an edge pass-rushing standpoint in their 3-4 scheme. To remedy the situation, Pittsburgh drafted two outside linebackers, Lawrence Timmons and LaMarr Woodley, in the first two rounds. These two should ignite the entire unit and both players will be used in a variety of ways. Clark Haggans is very solid on the outside, but isn't a game-changer. On the inside, James Farrior is the consummate professional and is still playing very well, while Larry Foote is productive, but isn't real dynamic.
