Scott Brown of the Trib has some news regarding 2012 NFL Draft prospects in whom the Steelers might be interested. The Steelers have recently had visits with three players from outside Pittsburgh, and one of those was Ohio State’s Mike Adams, an offensive lineman who looks like a likely first-round pick.
The other two were Cincinnati defensive end Derek Wolfe and Florida International wideout T.Y. Hilton. The Steelers love their defensive linemen, of course, but Wolfe’s visit is still a bit surprising — the Steelers need a nose tackle, but not so much a defensive end, since two of their last three first-round picks have been defensive ends. I can’t find anything to suggest that Wolfe can be an NFL nose tackle. He’s a likely mid-round pick.
Hilton also will likely be a mid-round pick. It wouldn’t be surprising to see the Steelers take a wide receiver at some point after the first couple rounds, since the team can use a bit of depth behind Mike Wallace (assuming he returns), Antonio Brown and Emmanuel Sanders.
