If you would like to take the time do players that range from 12-17 to see the type of players that go mid round. And if you got more time check round 2-3:). It would be interesting to see.

All I want is a solid RB, and a DT if we cut Hampton.

Here is who was drafted right after 17 (available at 17).

The page/post before has notable players drafted 12-17.

[Note: This is a deep R2-R3 draft. Listing the significant draft picks from those rounds would be extensive.]

Having a Hutch or Iupati like player on this team (even at their rookie levels) would instantly make the line functional and then dominant.

A Greenway like player, while a bit of excess for this corps, would also be nice.

Here's hoping that an impact player of that magnitude can be added and, along with a healthy Adams/DeCastro, make the 2013 version of PIT true contenders once more.

I still can't believe Janikowski was a first round pick.

Everyone said that when we drafted Pouncy then again when we drafted De Castro and Adams

Pouncey's been a rock. Terrifying to think how bad the Steelers OL would be without him.

Hopefully the injuries to DeCastro and Adams were just temporary setbacks and the best is yet to come.

If Adams or DeCastro turn about to be a Hutch/Iupati (or even 3/4) like player that would solve a great many things.

Nature of the draft. More players bust than not.
