After months of speculation and postulation, the Pittsburgh Steelers have put an end to all of the guesswork with a sensational performance at the 2012 NFL Draft.

While the team's moves in free agency had seen a logical (and predictable) stagnation, the Black and Gold were "Back and Bold" with their rookie selections. 

With a staggering number of draft steals, the Steelers, along with their interstate brethren in Philadelphia, are widely considered to have secured one of the top draft classes in the NFL.

In fact, the pedigree of their picks was so substantial, even against all odds, that history may someday recall this year's draft among the team's greatest ever.

Selections addressed team needs (nose tackle and offensive line, namely), invested in the future at traditionally strong positions (linebacker) and added some spark and sizzle into their selection mix with a firecracker, spark-plug running back from the Florida Gators.

With so many seemingly strong picks, fans in the Steel City hope the new faces live up to expectations. Likewise, here's hoping that team brass had the keen film room eyes that will help lead the squad toward a seventh Lombardi Trophy.

After an exciting and fruitful seven rounds, which picks had the most value, considering both the round and selection?  Here are the top five Steelers selections from the 2012 NFL Draft.
