Ask Ben Roethlisberger how he feels about the Steelers' focus on the offensive line during the draft's first two rounds. I'd be willing to bet he's happy as a clam. He's netted a new starting guard in David DeCastro that will both protect him and help the rushing attack.
He's also got a new backup tackle that could end up being a future star and all but ensures that Jonathan Scott will never be seen protecting Roethlisberger again.
The offensive line improves two things that have been problems for the Steelers in recent years.
First, the rushing attack has often suffered from a lack of blocking. It will be interesting to see Rashard Mendenhall behind this line if he can get healthy.
Second, the passing game has been beset by sacks and hurries because the line has been too weak. Now, their elite quarterback might have some time to find open receivers. That is a scary thought for the rest of the conference.
