The Steelers continue to address their aging defense. Ziggy Hood has been a bust, and Casey Hampton (and possibly Brett Keisel) isn't likely to return next year. After adding a young pass rusher in the first round, the Steelers look for more front 7 help.
Chicago addresses their o-line needs via free agency and grabbed their MLB of the future in the 1st round. To stretch the field in their new offense, the Bears select explosive Tennessee WR Justin Hunter.
With the # 52 overall pick of the 2013 NFL Draft... The Minnesota Vikings select..
Got to go where the value is. Trufant has shot up the boards, and provides better value here than other positions I want to address. Winfield will be on his final season, and the trio of Robinson, Cook, and Jefferson have had trouble staying healthy +/or effective. Trufant will provide a boost to this 24th ranked pass defense.

Tampa Bay Bucs select:
Sylvester Williams, DT, North Carolina
this is a questionable pick IMO. isnt tampa stacked at DT?
Not really, they have Gerald McCoy and Roy Miller as starters I believe. Price was traded before season I believe.
what about bowers and clayborn? are they DEs? Adrian was a 1st and bowers was considered a top 5 pick before his injuries but i haven't kept up with them after they were drafted so i don't know how they've been doing
With age and free agency threatening to deplete their WR corps, NE needs to get Tom Brady some weapons other than TE to work with going forward.
Snagging a 1st round talent who has fallen because of off the field issues and a transfer to smaller school, gives the Pats the chance to instill the "Patriot Way" to a very talented prospect who needs structure, leadership and a second chance to prove he can be a high level NFL player.
If the Pats can get even a good part of the potential out of this WR without the off field issues, it will be a steal of a pick.
