2012 NFL Mock Draft: Where Will Steelers Get An Offensive Lineman?

Walter Football's latest 2012 NFL mock draft has the Steelers taking Dont'a Hightower:

The Steelers usually take the top player on their board, and it would be hard to imagine that it wouldn't be Dont'a Hightower in this case. Pittsburgh just cut James Farrior, so the Alabama product would be a great long-term solution next to Lawrence Timmons. Hightower seems like he was made to play for the Steelers.

Walter Football lists Georgia offensive lineman Cordy Glenn and USC DE/OLB Nick Perry as other possibilities. In the second, it has them going with Cal offensive lineman Mitchell Schwartz (with fellow offensive linemen Kevin Zeitler, Mike Adams, and Kelechi Osemele all coming off the board right before their pick, which would be a shame). In the third round, it's Temple running back Bernard Pierce.

Penn State's Devon Still goes with the first pick in the second round, to the St. Louis Rams.
