Round 2 - Pick 32 - Dawand Jones, OT, Ohio State

After passing on an offensive tackle in the first round, the Steelers take a huge gamble and use the first pick of the second round (acquired from the Chicago Bears in the Chase Claypool trade) to select mammoth offensive tackle, Dawand Jones.

Jones' size is extraordinary, as he stands 6-8 and weighs in at 374 pounds. He also has long arms (36 3/8"), an enormous wingspan (87 7/8"), and huge hands (11 5/8"), all traits that were the largest among offensive linemen at the recent NFL Combine. In addition, Jones has great quickness and ran an unbelievable 5.35 (for a man his size) in the 40. Mike Tomlin's biggest concern is his maturity and work ethic, but he's willing to take a chance on him at this point.

Jones played mostly right tackle for the Buckeyes but is capable of playing either tackle position for the Steelers. Look for him to challenge Moore and Okorafor for a starting spot immediately, and if all goes well, the Steelers could have a perennial All-Pro on their hands in the future. If things don't go well, Jones could be a bust.

Other Possibilities: Brian Branch, CB/S, Alabama; Anton Harrison, OT, Oklahoma; Cody Mauch, OL, North Dakota State; B.J. Ojulari, Edge, LSU; Will McDonald IV, Edge, Iowa State

Surprise Pick: Drew Sanders, LB/Edge, Arkansas

I feel like Drew Sanders is a sleeper of sorts. This defensive stalwart has proven the ability to play both inside and outside, first at Alabama (Edge) and last season at Arkansas (Inside LB). He's got great size (6-4, 235) and good athleticism (37" vertical), along with a decent 40 time (4.66). Sanders was a Unanimous All-America selection and first-team All-SEC in his only season at Arkansas. Like Smith, he could fill a need at two positions for the Steelers.
