Here's an analysis of current state of the team, with specific analysis for each position. It also says if we worsened or improved. This, as was my last post, is a mixture of notes and opinions from many sources.

NOTE: This is not my personal opinion, just the overall thoughts of many people.

QB = Worsened
While we still have Big Ben (and that's all we need to get the seventh Lombardi) and he's fully recovered from all injuries, the back-up QB situation took a hit. Byron Leftwich was (and is still actually considered by some) a franchise quarterback who's career was derailed by injuries. As of now, the depth behind Roethlisberger consists of:
  • Charlie Batch, who's coming back from a broken collarbone and didn't play at all last season.
  • Dennis Dixon, a promising second-year man who did well in minicamp, but still has to prove he can play well in actual games.
  • Two UDFA's, who will most likely end up in the practice squad.
As a Steeler, Leftwich actually posted some very respectable numbers (considering the time he played). He played in five games, completed 21 passes out of 36 attempts, threw for 303 yards with 2 touchdowns and no interceptions, and was sacked three times. He also ran for another touchdown. Yeah, he had a slow release and all, but most of Steeler Nation eventually became more comfortable to having him as the back-up than Charlie Batch. He unfortunately left looking to compete for a starting job, and signed with the Bucs, who then stabbed him in the back and drafted Kansas State's Josh Freeman in the first round. Hopefully he gets released and he returns, as he had stated that if he were to be a back-up, he'd like to remain in Pittsburgh. That's why the QB situation worsened.

RB = Improved
Fast Willie Parker thinks he's in better shape for training camp than he has been in a long time, and that can only translate into good things for the team. Mewelde Moore proved his worth last season, and he will still be the versatile RB who can both run and catch well. We get 1st round pick Rashard Mendenhall back, and he's bound to be a boost to the running game. We upgraded our power-back situation with Frank Summers, who'll replace Gary Russell after he was released. Summers likes to hit people, and that's something that can't really be taught to a runningback. Plus, he's a great special teams player. We might have found a good player in UDFA Isaac Redman, as well as with Stefan Logan. Carey Davis might or might not compete with Summers for the FB spot, but at least Davis is a valuable ST asset, as he makes a ton of tackles. The return of an injured 1st round RB, keeping two starters and valuable backup, and upgrading a role RB is definitely an improved situation for the team.

WR = Improved
We resigned Hines Ward to a long-term deal, ensuring he retires a Steeler. Now we have two Superbowl MVP wide receivers on the team. Holmes finally broke out in the 2009 playoffs, and many think that now is when he translates that talent to the regular season. Nate Washington left, but to fill the void he left we drafted Ole Miss' bullet Mike Wallace, who is basically as athletic as Washington, but has somewhat better hands. Wallace ran a 4.28 40, had a 40'' vertical, and is as good a deep threat as they come. We also signed veteran WR Shaun McDonald, who is also a solid option at WR. Dallas Baker and Martin Nance will battle for a roster spot, and both should have improved from when they first joined the team last season. We also signed three UDFA's. The most intriguing case, however, is Limas Sweed. Last year's second round pick, he failed to live up to the hype that surrounded him in his rookie season. He's more remembered for his drops than his catches. However, the possibility of winning the #3 spot has already fueled his interest to get better, and he still has all the talent people said he once had. If he returns to his pre-wrist-injury form, then he'll be a devastating force for Pittsburgh. We also signed Jayson Foster, although he's mainly a ST guy.

TE = Same
We still have Heath Miller (although in the last year of his contract) as the starter, and Matt Spaeth as his back-up. Sean McHugh is the versatile guy who can play both TE and FB. Seventh round pick David Johnson is similar to McHugh, but he's expected to provide little impact and be on the PS for a year.

OT = Worsened

We franchised Max Starks and re-signed Willie Colon, and therefore have our starting tackles once again. However, we lost Marvel Smith, who was still the starter when not injured. Tony Hills remains a question when it comes to how well he's playing, and Trai Essex, the versatile guy who can play multiple O-Line positions was resigned. Ultimately, we kept the majority of our guys, but failed to add someone else. Depth is pretty thin, and an injury to any of the two starting tackles could prove to be devastating.

OG = Improved

Starters Chris Kemoeatu and Darnell Stapleton remain with the team, and Kemo is locked up for another five years. We released Kendall Simmons, which translates into saved cap space and releasing a guy who was, sadly, overrated. We drafted road-grater Kraig Urbik in the third round, and signed Ramon Foster as an UDFA. While being a tackle in college, Foster will most likely switch to guard, as his run-blocking abilities would most likely translate better at that position. While still losing a veteran, we obtained two young guys, one of which can start immediately.

C = Improved
Justin Hartwig remains on the team (last year, though), and Darnell Stapleton can also play center. Second year man Doug Legursky will battle for a roster spot with seventh rounder A.Q. Shipley, who astounded coaches with his intelligence during minicamp. Getting a new guy can't hurt, though, and he could become a steal.

NT = Same
Casey Hampton and Chris Hoke still remain on the team. Behind them, though, is no one, as usual. Sometimes Scott Paxson is on the team, but he's undersized and basically overachieves. Still, we have one of, if not the, best 3-4 NT, and a guy who can play just as well as he does when replacing
him.

DE = Improved
Aaron Smith, Brett Keisel, Nick Eason, and Travis Kirschke are all coming back. Yeah, we lost Orpheus Roye, but what the hey, he only played in like three games. We did, however, add Ziggy Hood, and he could become a monster DE for us. The D-Line is gonna start a rebuilding process, and Ziggy is a very good player to start with.

ILB = Worsened

Sadly, Larry Foote's tenure as a Steeler has come to an end. Timmons will step up to his spot, but that leaves a very serious question mark when it comes to ILB depth. Keyaron Fox? Donovan Woods? Patrick Bailey? Sure, these guys might be good players when their name is called, but as of right now, neither of those three guys will be able to play at the same level that Foote did. There are also 2 UDFA's, but once again, they probably won't be able to do what Foote did.

OLB = Improved
James Harrison is going to be a Steeler for a long time, and he's back with Woodley to show the world that God hates quarterbacks. Add in former college pass-rushing demon Bruce Davis, and we might be looking at one of the best pass-rushing teams of all time. Yeah, that might be kind of a reach, but let's say that Harrison has 15 sacks, Woodley improves as a player and doesn't have a late season drop-off and ends up with 13. Timmons adds in 10, Davis 6 as a situational pass-rusher, and we've already got 44, which is more than half of what the record (72) is. Add in some more from Smith, Keisel, Farrior, Hampton, Troy, and other guys, and that could very easily be possible. And in this scenario, Harrison's production decreases while Woodley's improved very, VERY, little; I can't even imagine how devastating the defense could be if they both improve upon their respective 2008-2009 numbers. We also have Andre Frazier returning, as well as Arnold Harrison recovered from his injury.

CB = Improved
Yeah, we lost Bryant McFadden. He was a starter and all. But, we still have Taylor and Townsend, who were the original starters at the beginning of last season. Plus, William Gay is supposedly penciled in as the starter beside Taylor. He could be just as good as McFadden was. We resigned Fernando Bryant and Anthony Madison, who'll provide competition. We signed FA CB Keiwan Ratfliff, and he can play well. Plus, we drafted not one, but TWO CB's in Keenan Lewis and Joe Burnett. Lewis supposedly reminds to coaches A LOT of Ike Taylor. Burnett was a playmaker, totaling 16 INT's while playing at Central Florida. If Lewis every develops well, it would be beastly to see two Ike Taylor's playing at the same time.

S = Improved
We lost Anthony Smith. We now have Ryan Mundy. That about evens things out. Smith barely played last season, and we still have both starters in Polamalu and Clark. Carter will take the main back-up role for both positions, and Mundy can compete to take the back-up FS job this season, and maybe the starting one in future years. Keenan Lewis could supposedly play safety also, and this added value is what makes the safety position an improved one.

K = Same
Still have old, eccentric, reliable Jeff Reed.

P = Improved
Hold your horses guys, this isn't as good news as you might think it is. Yeah, we improved in the situation, but that isn't saying much when seeing how Berger punted last year. Hopefully Dirk Johnson is better than Berger, because one coach said that Sepulveda is a long time away from being the great punter we envision him to be. His knee injury happened to his kicking leg, and therefore has been unable to train AT ALL. He still has to regain his former talent, let alone improve. Hopefully, things speed up and he does improve quickly, but that might still be a long time from now.

LS = Worsened

Greg Warren is still limping, and Jared Retkofsky had surgery to repair a recently injured arm in a motorcycle accident. Right now, the only healthy LS we have is Mark Estermyer, an UDFA out of Pittsburgh.

RS = Improved
We now have Mike Wallace and Joe Burnett, two guys who can add to the return game. Plus, we signed former CFL star Stefan Logan, who's got talent at returning as well. Add in Holmes, Moore, and returning Mendenhall, and we've suddenly got many guys who can return well. Wallace will probably take the spot though, mainly to his ridiculous speed.

And that's about it.

Actually Sepulveda injured his plant leg. The injury is in his right leg, he punts left-footed.

Levi Jones got released by the Bengals. I would like to look at him if he wasn't so injury prone.

I wouldn't mind Harris. Use to be a pretty damn good player and has played with Tomlin. I think he could be a real good back up for us.

Yeah, Harris was a solid player. Definitely better depth with him than what we have now. I think the team wants to keep Fox to ST only, otherwise we'd lose a key ST player if he for some reason has to step into the ILB position.

I'm not a big fan. He's oft injured, which concerns me. And he's smaller than Farrior and not nearly as strong. He would have trouble shedding blocks in our scheme and he's the kind of guy that racks up tackles but makes no plays.

And he did have a hundred something tackles, so he is probably looking for a starting spot somewhere.

I would much rather have Nappy Harris, who would be cheaper too.

Gary Russell signed with the Raiders.

Things really went downhill for the guy after the Superbowl.

Or they could be scouting a guy for midseason depth in case of injury.
