Steelers go heavy on defense in final day of NFL draft

PITTSBURGH (AP) The Pittsburgh Steelers won the AFC North last season almost in spite of a defense that couldn't get to the quarterback or the ball with any regularity.

Rather than splurge in free agency, the Steelers did what they almost always do when it's time to rebuild: they threw young legs at the problem instead.

Senquez Golson, Doran Grant and Jerod Holliman weren't the biggest or fastest secondary prospects in the NFL Draft. Yet they knew what to do when the ball is in the air, combining for 29 interceptions during their final college seasons last fall. For a team in dire need of the kind of "splash" plays that can alter the course of a season, it's a start.
