The Steelers limped to an 8-8 record last season. There are plenty of new faces in training camp -- including first-round pick Jarvis Jones, who hopes he can be the next great outside linebacker in Pittsburgh.
Few teams are more successful in the first round than the Steelers. Expect that success to continue with Jarvis Jones, a perfect schematic and personality fit who could contend for Defensive Rookie of the Year honors.
Coach Mike Tomlin is entering his seventh season in Pittsburgh, and this may be the most important draft of his tenure. The Steelers are old and cap-strapped, and in desperate need of depth up and down the roster. The organizaton has been relatively successful in recent drafts, but were they successful enough?
Free agency hasn't gone according to plan for linebacker James Harrison, who must have thought that not only would he be employed by now, he'd be making close to -- or more than -- the $6.57 million the Steelers were set to pay him in 2013 before they asked him to take a pay cut.
