2012 NFL Mock Draft: Dontari Poe AND Dont'a Hightower For Steelers?

There’s almost no chance this will happen, but this community mock draft would be a dream for the Steelers. First, combine monster and Memphis nose tackle Dontari Poe falls to the Steelers at No. 24, which strikes me as unlikely. Then, the Steelers trade back into the first round, shipping their second- and third-round picks and their 2013 second-round pick to the New England Patriots, and grab Alabama linebacker Dont’a Hightower.

That would be an amazing haul for the Steelers. Both are very legitimate first-rounders, and both play positions where the Steelers have serious needs. The only unfortunate thing about it is that the Steelers wouldn’t be able to start addressing their offensive line issues until the fourth round.

Devon Still of Penn State goes to the Denver Broncos at No. 25.
