Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger Happy With Pittsburgh's Draft Picks
Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger already talked with the newest Steelers first-round draft pick, offensive guard David DeCastro. The Steelers made a commitment to their offensive line in the recent days by selecting DeCastro in the first round of the NFL draft and offensive tackle Mike Adams in the second round and added a third lineman, tackle Kelvin Beachum, in the seventh round on Saturday. "I'm excited,'' Roethlisberger said before Saturday's event. "You know, at least on paper, it looks awesome. But, you never know until you take the field and the bullets start flying. I'm really excited. We got some good guys on offense and defense to help add to a team that was good already. "I had an idea [about the picks]. They kept me in the loop a little bit. When DeCastro was there, you got to take him. Some are saying he's one of the best guards in college since Alan Faneca. We hope he can live up to the hype.'' The Steelers offensive line has been criticized in recent years for its inability to protect Roethlisberger in the passing game. The team also needed to upgrade its line because of the uncertainty of the running game.
Bye For Now.
