Pittsburgh Steelers Add Mike Adams with 2nd Pick in 2012 NFL Draft
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger should have a smile a mile long after knowing that his team has added more protection up front for him. Pittsburgh used their first two picks of the 2012 NFL Draft on two highly rated offensive linemen.
Despite missing five games last season due to a suspension, Adams still managed to be named to the 2011 second-team All Big Ten team, and to become one of the top offensive linemen in this year’s draft.
For the 56th overall pick, playing for the Steelers was a dream come true. This is what was posted on the Steelers’ official website after being drafted:
“It was something that was really hard to deal with,” said Adams about his reaction to being told he had been taken off the Steelers’ draft board. “That’s the team I wanted to go to from day one. Ever since I started imagining playing in the NFL, the Steelers have always been the team I wanted to go to.”
Not only does Adams have a chance to live his dream, he also has a chance to play a huge part in fulfilling the dreams of Steeler Nation and helping bring another Super Bowl championship to the Steel City.
Team president Art Rooney II, general manager Kevin Colbert, head coach Mike Tomlin, and the rest of the Steelers organization have made it known that they are committed to improving an offensive line that struggled in protecting their franchise quarterback. I feel that Pittsburgh is doing exactly what is needed to be done in order to once again be at the top of the AFC North, and become favorites for the Super Bowl.
Now it’s time to work on the defense!
