The 2012 NFL draft is still three months away but it is never too early to start thinking about who the next crop of Pittsburgh Steelers will be.

Pittsburgh will likely see a lot of turnover as the team is expected to be around $25 million over the salary cap. Many veterans may find themselves released, leaving the Steelers with several holes on their roster.

James Farrior and Casey Hampton are two of the biggest names on defense who may need to be replaced.

Both players have been staples in the Steelers defense, which has been ranked at or near the top of the league since there has been a roster.

If it is not replacing aging veterans, there is always the need to add talent on the offensive line.

There will be no shortage of options as there is a lot of talent in this draft and the Steelers will most certainly find quality players early in the draft and even a gem or two later.

Let's take a look at my first mock draft of the offseason.
