Another Day At The Office
Today should be a huge day for players who played high school football in the Western Pennsylvania region to get drafted. One was selected by the Steelers in Ohio State OT Mike Adams. Adams grew up in Farrell, PA but played his high school football in Dublin, OH. The Steelers obviously went with 2 offensive linemen to attempt to shore up an area of need. Stanford's David DeCastro has the ability to come in and have an impact right away at a OG slot. As does Ohio State's Mike Adams who can become the third tackle behind Willie Colon and Marcus Gilbert. It can happen that these players can make an impact immediately but also they can create a higher level of competition at these positions. The third round selection, ILB Sean Spence is a solid inside linebacker who can make plays from sideline to sideline and penetrate the gaps. Today(Day 3 of the Draft)can be very interesting. The Steelers have 7 choices remaining. You can find some gems in these 4th through 7th rounds. The Steelers have 4 seventh round selections and may use a few to trade up in a round. But one of the Steelers best 7th round selections of all time is DE Brett Kiesel. We will find out when training camp rolls around.
