Landing OG David DeCastro is like the Steelers' dream come true
Round 1: OG David DeCastro, Stanford, A+
DeCastro fell into the Steelers' lap and they had no choice but to take him. He's a future Pro Bowler and brings stability to what was once a chaotic offensive line.
Round 2: OT Mike Adams, Ohio State, B-
High ceiling, low floor. If the Steelers can properly motivate Adams, he'll be an excellent tackle for many years, but if they can't, Ben Roethlisberger's going to take a ton of sacks yet again.
Round 3: LB Sean Spence, Miami, B
Look for Spence to move to strong safety though there is a chance he remains as an inside linebacker.
Round 4: NT Alameda Ta'Amu, Washington, A
The Steelers needed a nose tackle this year, and Ta'Amu's one of the best. This is practically a steal for Pittsburgh in the fourth round.
Round 5: RB Chris Rainey, Florida, B
Rainey will be used as a running back and receiver, and his elite speed will allow the Steelers to be more creative with him. He can't block, however—he's just too small.
Round 7: WR Toney Clemons, Colorado, B
Depth at receiver is good for 2012; he could be a starter in 2013 depending on how things play out when this season is over.
Round 7: TE David Paulson, Oregon, B-
Paulson could prove to be a good receiver at some point, but he needs to bulk up. He's skinny and needs to work on blocking.
Round 7: CB Terrence Frederick, Texas A&M, D
Not at all sure what the Steelers did with this pick. He's not physical or fast enough to play corner in the NFL and, as such, isn't projected to do much on special teams either.
Round 7: OG Kelvin Beachum, Southern Methodist, A
Ending the draft with offensive line depth is a perfect move for Pittsburgh. Beachum could easily rise on the roster by the time the 2012 season is over.
Overall Draft Grade: A
