We have to take a nose tackle in 3rd.

That's undoubtedly how they'll line up, too. Almost every other team in the league knows to put their big clods on the right side and their athletes on the left, but Mike Tomlin just has some irrational boner for putting his two biggest, fattest, slowest guys at LT and LG.

Fortunately, with this influx of talents, the biggest, fattest and slowest guys on the Steelers' line actually have left-side athleticism. The right side just doesn't have right-side strength.

Adams is willing to defer his signing bonus also, which is a nice bonus for us. He said so, though, in a letter aplogizing about blazing up hah

Anyone past the 1st round typically have decent deficits that caused them to drop. Maybe the org can get sorted out, but it is certainly a coinflip risk.

the Steelers rarely misjudge character issues, not saying this guy hasn't had issues. He must have said/done the right things while meeting with them.

I never liked Adams as a first rounder personally (and I'm a huge Buckeyes fan) but I have to say I like the value at this point and love that we took another offensive lineman. This is the correct way to improve our ability to score touchdowns in the Red Zone and not settle for field goals.
