Steelers likely to focus on defense early in draft

PITTSBURGH (AP) Kevin Colbert isn't a fan of the word "need."

The Pittsburgh Steelers general manager believes it points too specifically to one area of weakness.

"We have to be better and I do not think we were better in 2017 than we were in 2016 because we got eliminated a round earlier," Colbert said of the AFC North champions, who were upset at home by Jacksonville in the divisional round of the playoffs. "And I think that's a reflection on the job that all of us did or didn't do. And how do we get better?"
