2012 NFL Mock Draft: Offensive Line Could Be Steelers Biggest Need

The Pittsburgh Steelers came within a hair of winning the AFC North Division this year, but there are still plenty of holes on both sides of the field that they will need to address if they want to get over the divisional hump next year. One of the holes is along the offensive line, where many mock draft organizers have focused on so far this season.The latest is from NFL Mocks, who have the Steelers taking Iowa State lineman Kelechi Osemele. Here is their rationale.

Smart offensive line prospect who can play either guard position or right tackle. Fits exactly what the Steelers look for in an offensive lineman.

Ben Roethlisberger took a beating this season and the offensive line is definitely an area where they can find some long-term solutions to help remove some of the patchwork that they were forced to use last year.
