Six years ago, the Steelers used a first-round pick with a former Ohio State player with some off-field red flags. In 2012, they’re doing it again in round two.
The Steelers have selected tackle Mike Adams with the 56th overall selection.
That gives the Steelers two new offensive lineman in the first two rounds. On Thursday, the Steelers took Stanford guard David DeCastro.
Adams reportedly tested positive for marijuana at the Scouting Combine. Former Ohio State receiver Santonio Holmes had enough marijuana-related incidents in the NFL to ultimately receive a four-game suspension.
Still, Adams plays a position of significant need, especially if the goal is to reduce the amount of time quarterback Ben Roethlisberger spends running for his life.
