For the third straight year, the Steelers targeted the trenches in the first round of the draft. After picking defensive end Ziggy Hood in 2009 and center Maurkice Pouncey last April, the Steelers took DE Cameron Heyward out of Ohio State with the 31st overall selection in the 2011 NFL Draft. Pittsburgh addressed urgent needs after that, beefing up the offensive line and bolstering an often-scorched secondary.

Pitt defensive Jabaal Sheard was the fifth man off the board on Day 2 of the 2011 NFL draft and second Pitt player selected when the Browns drafted him 37th overall. Eleven picks later, Penn State contributed its first player in the draft's second round when Nittany Lions center Stefen Wisniewski was selected by Oakland.

With the 31st pick in the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft, the Pittsburgh Steelers selected DE Cameron Heyward out of Ohio State. At 6'5" and 290 lbs, Heyward is an ideal fit as a defensive end in the Steelers 3-4 defense. Cameron is the son of the late Craig "Ironhead" Heyward, former Pitt and NFL running back.

1. The Steelers need to take a corner with the 31st selection, but Colorado’s Jimmy Smith will likely be gone by 31. That leaves Texas’ Aaron Williams and Miami’s Brandon Harris as possible selections.

No football team is perfect; not this year’s Super Bowl champions, or last year’s champions, or even the “perfect” ’72 Dolphins who ended their season without a loss. And certainly not the Steelers team that defied the odds—and the injury-sheet—in an improbable run to the sport’s most important game last year.

Everyone knows—or so we are told—that the Steelers draft well. Kevin Colbert will conduct his 12th draft April 28-30 as the team’s director of football operations and the one reasonably safe bet is that he will hit the mark with his first-round choice.
