2012 NFL Draft Recap (2nd and 3rd Rounds) -- Pittsburgh Steelers

56. Mike Adams - OT - Ohio State.

86. Sean Spence - LB - Miami (FL)

In a desperate quest to fix their offensive line, the Steelers drafted Adams at 56. He fell into the second round because he failed the drug test at the combine. (Puff-puff, pass!) If he doesn't fail to block anyone, then he will be OK in Pittsburgh.

Drafting Spence was a wise decision. He adds depth to an already strong position for the Steelers. He can play at either the inside or outside linebacker positions. He would also be able to fill in whenever James Harrison is suspended for an illegal hit next season.

Grade: B-
