2012 NFL Draft: Possible Pittsburgh Steelers Surprises in Each Round

The Pittsburgh Steelers' needs in the 2012 NFL draft have been well-documented.

Considering the draft buildup has been almost as long as the Steelers' 2011 season, everyone knows by now that the Big Three of Pittsburgh's draft needs are nose tackle, inside linebacker and offensive guard.

Not all of the Steelers' 10 picks will address those three areas, however.

Don't be surprised if the Steelers make at least a couple of picks at positions where they don't seem to have a need. Before throwing a bottle of Iron City at the TV, take a closer look.

Here are possible surprise picks for the Steelers in each round of the NFL draft. This is by no means a mock draft. I'd get beaten with bars of soap wrapped in Terrible Towels if I tried to pass this off as a complete mock draft because there are no nose tackles, inside linebackers or guards on this list.

However, one or two of these picks could actually happen because each of these picks would fill an underlying need.
