F. Dale Lolley, the Observer-Reporter's veteran Steelers beat reporter, provides an inside view for Pittsburgh and the rest of the National Football League.

Now that the dust has settled from a pretty fast and furious first round of action from the NFL draft, it's time to sort through what's left for day two and try to figure out what direction the Steelers will go.

Pittsburgh got the offensive lineman it coveted in the first round, grabbing guard/center Maurkice Pouncey.

Now, the Steelers will look to fill some other trouble spots.

There was a big run on cornerbacks late in the first round that sucked away some solid talent, but there are still a couple of DBs out there that they like, Brandon Ghee first and foremost among them.

If the Wake Forest corner is available when the Steelers pick at 52, look for another big smile on Kevin Colbert's face.

Notre Dame wide receiver Golden Tate would also interest the Steelers a great deal as the heir apparent to Hines Ward.

If both of those players are gone, it could get interesting. In that case, you could be looking at wide receiver Arrelious Benn from Illinois, linebacker Koa Misi from Utah or Akwasi Owusu-Ansah from IUP.

Owusu-Ansah would be interesting not just from the standpoint of having played just up the road from Pittsburgh, but because a few years ago the Steelers took a chance on a D-II cornerback in the second round following a run on corners and ended up with Ricardo Colclough. Penn State's Navorro Bowman and Sean Lee are also possibilities.

I don't know if that will scare them away from Owusu-Ansah, but it may.

Agreed. Hell, why stop there? Let's just go and get steals the whole rest of the draft.

That's exactly what would keep me from taking him. Colclough sucked!
