Interesting article that Ed wrote hinting the Steelers may elect to extend Marvel this year.
IMHO, I thought with the Transition tag applied to Starks, that would signify that we'd let Marvel walk after this season.
Let's assume we we extend Marvel and sign Max this offseason... that really changes things up!
Marvel, Max, Colon, Essex at the tackle spots. Great depth and very little need to draft a tackle at all.
Interior of the line: Kemo, Stapleton, Simmons, Mahan. I guess we'd use Colon to back up a guard spot, and probably draft an interior line person as well? I read that we were still interested in Hadnot too. I'd presume if we'd sign him, that would temper our draft prospects for the line almost all together and if not, may signify Mahan will be out this year or next.
The other tricky proposition is that Kemo will be a UFA next year, and that may mean we look at a day 1 guard if he is not the permanent answer.
If the line is solidified and locked up by draft day, what areas then does the Steelers focus on?
I'd say DL or WR. Those will be the other areas of pressing need the next few years.
