Draft guru Mel Kiper Jr. of ESPN has come out with his latest draft projections for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Kiper, like many others, thinks the Steelers will go with Alabama linebacker Dont'a Hightower in the first round. In the second round, he feels the team will look to address the issues on the offensive line by taking former Iowa State guard Kelechi Osemele. Osemele recently visited the Atlanta Falcons, and the folks at The Falcoholic have put together a nice scouting report on him.
Finally, in the third round, Kiper has the Steelers taking nose tackle Alameda Ta'Amu out of Washington.
These three picks make all sorts of sense from a positional perspective, since they address all of the Steelers' top areas of need: inside linebacker, guard and nose tackle.
