Community Mock Draft: Round 1, Pick 24 - Pittsburgh Steelers

Mark Barron is the pick for the Detroit Lions, who get a pretty good safety to help on the back end of their defense, which got torched late in the season despite a formidable pass rush. The pick makes sense, although they could have used a cornerback and offensive tackle too.

Now we get to pick 24, which will be made by the Pittsburgh Steelers. As always, the Steelers don't have many needs, and they'll pick someone who fits their system. Still, their offensive line has been a mess for ages, and they could use a running back now that Rashard Mendenhall is entering the final year of his contract and may not be available this season due to injury. So, who do you think they'll select?

1. Indianapolis Colts: Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford
2. Washington Redskins: Robert Griffin III, QB, Baylor (trade)
3. Minnesota Vikings: Matt Kalil, OT, USC
4. Cleveland Browns: Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma State
5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Morris Claiborne, CB, LSU
6. St. Louis Rams (trade): Riley Reiff, OT, Iowa
7. Jacksonville Jaguars: Michael Floyd, WR, Notre Dame
8. Miami Dolphins: Ryan Tannehill, QB, Texas A&M
9. Carolina Panthers: Dontari Poe, DT, Memphis
10. Buffalo Bills: Quinton Coples, DE, North Carolina
11. Kansas City Chiefs: Trent Richardson, RB, Alabama
12. Seattle Seahawks: Luke Kuechly, LB, Boston College
13. Arizona Cardinals: Jonathan Martin, OT, Stanford
14. Dallas Cowboys: Dre Kirkpatrick, CB, Alabama
15. Philadelphia Eagles: Dont'a Hightower, LB, Alabama
16. New York Jets: Melvin Ingram, DE/OLB, South Carolina
17. Cincinnati Bengals: David Decastro, G, Stanford
18. San Diego Chargers: Courtney Upshaw, DE/OLB, Alabama
19. Chicago Bears: Mike Adams, OT, Ohio State
