    Asked about the state of his defensive line, Steelers assistant head coach John Mitchell said he believes the Steelers' defensive line should become even stronger this season because of a projected increase in playing time for Ziggy Hood, the team's first-round draft pick in 2009. Hood has a better understanding of the defense entering his second season and his mechanics should allow him to remain on the field longer. Mitchell envisions a defensive line rotation including Hood, Nick Eason and Chris Hoke. "I'm really excited about Ziggy. The transition he's made from his first year to his second year has been tremendous," Mitchell said. "He's using his hands better. Last year, Ziggy let people into his body. Right now, he's playing with better pad level, he's using his hands better and he's staying on his feet."
