NFL Draft 2012: Mike Tomlin Met With Michigan Defensive Lineman Mike Martin At The Combine

With the defensive line a big need for this upcoming season for the Pittsburgh Steelers, there's no shortage of speculation as to who the Steelers may be interested in. We do know that Steeler head coach Mike Tomlin talked with Michigan defensive lineman Mike Martin.

Martin talked about his meeting with Tomlin in an interview with WBBL in Grand Rapids, MI.

You know I had a lot of conversations with a lot of teams. I had a lot of formal interviews, but the meeting that I really enjoyed a lot was the one I had with the Pittsburgh Steelers and talking with Tomlin. We spoke and he's a great guy and we really enjoyed our conversation. So we will just have to see what happens

While Martin does sound like he would be a decent selection, his stats at the Scouting Combine show that he would be undersized at nose tackle for the 3-4 scheme that the Steelers run.
