There was actually 7 O line prospects taken and I'm glad the Steelers didnt reach for the 8th in Duane Brown like Houston did. The only other pick that made sense was Balmer at that point.

I'm an admitted O-line pimp as I used to play it and still coach O-line and attend coaching clinics......I'm glad they didnt reach for an O lineman after what happened, but would have liked to see Anthony Collins in the 3rd or 4th.

Mendenhall will be amazing!! The guy is similar in size and speed to Ladanian Tomlinson. He's no LT, but a great powerful compliment to Parker and a guy that might take Parker's job in a few years.
