For the third straight year, the Steelers targeted the trenches in the first round of the draft. After picking defensive end Ziggy Hood in 2009 and center Maurkice Pouncey last April, the Steelers took DE Cameron Heyward out of Ohio State with the 31st overall selection in the 2011 NFL Draft. Pittsburgh addressed urgent needs after that, beefing up the offensive line and bolstering an often-scorched secondary.

Once again, the Pittsburgh Pirates’ offense is barely registering a pulse. The Bucs rank second-to-last in the National League in runs scored in 2011 after bringing up the rear in 2010. The left side of the infield is the culprit:

Pedro Alvarez is still searching for his power stroke and Ronny Cedeno’s slack bat has given failed Angels prospect Brandon Wood a chance at redemption.
