Looking back at the 2012 NFL Draft, the Pittsburgh Steelers had the top draft class.
They immediately boosted their offensive line, as they selected OG David DeCastro out of Stanford with the 24th pick overall, and with the 56th pick overall the Steelers selected OT Mike Adams (Ohio State).
They used the third round to boost their linebacker core. LB Sean Spence (Miami (FL)) was their selection. In the fourth round, they bolstered their aging defensive line. NT Alameda Ta’amu (Washington) was their choice. He was a sliding draft prospect with immense potential.
Next round, Pittsburgh selected Chris Rainey, an ever-so dynamic, multidimensional RB/WR/RS/WCQB. Despite being such a low selection (159th overall), Rainey will make an immediate impact to the Steelers’ changing offense.
Pittsburgh possessed four seventh round picks (three were compensatory). They selected WR Toney Clemons, TE David Paulson, CB Terrence Frederick, and OG Kelvin Beachum.
