Round 2 NFL Mock Draft: Steelers Projected To Take Nose Tackle On Day Two

The Pittsburgh Steelers have to be extremely happy with their selection in the first round, as they got a guy who nobody projected to still be on the board when they picked at No. 24 overall. But they can't celebrate for very long because they'll be back on the clock before we know it. The second round starts at 7 pm ET, and the Steelers will be making their second selection of the Draft shortly after that. Mocking the Draft has come out with a Round 2 Mock, and they have the Steelers adding some more help along the trenches in Alabama nose tackle Josh Chapman.

The Steelers arguably got the biggest steal of the first round of the draft with DeCastro. But their need for a replacement for Casey Hampton is still glaring. Chapman is a natural nose tackle who would fit perfectly in their scheme.

This was a popular position pick for the Steelers in the first round with guys like Dontari Poe, so it makes sense that they would turn their attention to that position in here in the second round. But the first round didn't play out like any of the Mocks would have suggested, so who knows?
