For as much promise as Pittsburgh's defense showed in the second half of last season, the Steelers know they need help in the secondary.
To this point, five safeties and one cornerback have visited Pittsburgh for workouts.
Armed with the understanding that he needs to upgrade his entire pass defense, Kinkhabwala added, Colbert "loves" Michigan hybrid defensive back Jabrill Peppers. The question is whether Peppers will be available at the back end of the first round.
If Ben Roethlisberger has his way, though, one of those draft picks will be devoted to the other side of the ball. After spending years campaigning for a wide receiver with size, the veteran quarterback has begun lobbying coach Mike Tomlin for a tight end, per Kinkhabwala.
It's worth noting that April is smokescreen season in the NFL. When it comes to the Steelers, though, the emphasis on the defensive backfield and tight end certainly checks out.
