The Big Question: Will Steelers have NFL's most impactful draft class?
Outside linebacker Jarvis Jones isn't guaranteed to start as a rookie, but I like his chances to pass Jason Worilds on the depth chart sooner than later. Second-round running back Le'Veon Bell currently is the heavy favorite to start at running back over Jonathan Dwyer and Isaac Redman. The Steelers love Bell's three-down skills.
Third-round wide receiver Markus Wheaton's polished skill set translates to the NFL; he's a good bet to be the team's third receiver as a rookie. Fourth-round safety Shamarko Thomas, a Bob Sanders-like prospect, should be the primary backup to both safety spots behind two aging starters. The Steelers broke tradition by trading a 2014 third-rounder to get Thomas.
- Attention fantasy leaguers: No rookie running back is in a better position than Bell to rack up 300 touches or more in 2013. Redman or Dwyer probably are battling for one roster spot behind him.
