2012 NFL Mock Draft: Pittsburgh Steelers Look For Help On The Offensive Line

With the imagery of a hobbled Ben Roethlisberger being chased around the backfield fresh in Pittsburgh fans' minds, many mock draft experts continue to have the Steelers looking for help on the offensive line in April's 2012 NFL Draft. This includes Rob Rang of, who last week had the Steelers drafting Jerel Worthy to plug a hole on the defensive line.

Rang now has the Steelers taking big offensive guard Cordy Glenn out of Georgia. Glenn is a name that many Steelers' fans have come to know as they familiarize themselves with potential draft targets.

Cordy Glenn, OG, Georgia: The Steelers seemingly patch up their offensive line annually, only to struggle with injuries and consistency up front. Glenn lacks the consistency to earn a first round grade from all clubs, but the 6-5, 350-pounder has the size the Steelers prefer upfront and, as a rare four-year starter with experience at left tackle, left guard and right guard he has the durability and versatility the team prioritizes on draft day. Roethlisberger was sacked five times against the Broncos.

Earlier in the first round, Rang continues to have Devon Still going No. 8 to the Carolina Panthers, who desperately need help on their defensive front.
