NFL Mock Draft 2012: Steelers Pick Mike Adams, Alameda Ta'amu In New Mock

Mocking The Draft's latest five-round NFL mock draft has the Steelers taking Ohio State offensive lineman Mike Adams with their first-round pick. In the second, they grab Washington nose tackle Alameda Ta'amu. Then in the third round it's another offensive lineman, this time Senio Kelemente, also out of Washington. They take Vanderbilt linebacker Chris Marve in the fourth, then Oklahoma wideout Ryan Broyles in the fifth.

This draft certainly addresses the Steelers' needs from a positional perspective, although Adams is a tackle, and the position on the offensive line at which the Steelers most need help is guard. Ta'amu would be groomed as a successor for Casey Hampton, and Kelemente could help slow the carousel at guard.

Penn State's Devon Still, by the way, falls all the way to the Patriots at No. 27. There still isn't much agreement on his value; before the Senior Bowl, he was routinely going in the top 10, and now he's starting to turn up near the end of the first round.
