2012 NFL Mock Draft: New SI Mock Has Steelers Going Offensive Line

The Pittsburgh Steelers have one major area of need on the offensive line. Keeping quarterback Ben Roethlisberger upright and healthy is a top priority. In order to do that, the Steelers will need to bolster an offensive line that has been an issue for a few seasons. SI.com's new mock draft has the Steelers addressing exactly that.

Pittsburgh Steelers
Cordy Glenn, OG-OT, Georgia. The Steelers are being given Memphis DT Dontari Poe in plenty of mocks, and he makes sense as a replacement for veteran Casey Hampton, who is coming off ACL surgery. But have you seen the state of the Steelers' offensive line the past two seasons? Until convinced otherwise, we consider Pittsburgh's OL issues to be its top priority.

Glenn is an interesting pick for the Steelers there, because he does offer some versatility on the offensive line. Glenn has the ability to play left tackle, right tackle, and both guard positions.
