2012 NFL Draft: Could Delvin Johnson Be A Fit For Steelers?

Behind The Steel Curtain interviews Marshall defensive tackle Delvin Johnson. Johnson can play nose tackle, so he might be on the Steelers' radar in this year's NFL Draft, either as a late-round pick or as an undrafted free agent.

What are you looking to prove at your pro day?

↵

A strong pro day will just solidify myself as a elite nose tackle. I think that I have been lost in the shuffle a little bit. So a strong pro day will most definitely open up some more eyes ...

↵

Do you watch the Steelers play a lot? Would you like to play in their organization?

↵

I watch the Steelers a lot. I love their aggressive style of defense that they play. I would absolutely love to be a part of that. I would be thankful for any opportunity i got though.

Elsewhere, Johnson says that Nick Fairley is one of his favorite players to watch. He also says he's working on his lateral quickness, and says he also needs to improve his pad level.

A fairly recent NFL Mock Draft at Mocking The Draft by the author of the Johnson interview lists him as a potential sixth-round pick.
