NFL Mock Draft, Pick 18: Steelers Select Mike Iupati, G Idaho

The 18th pick is in and SB Nation's Steelers community, Behind the Steel Curtain, has selected...

Idaho G Mike Iupati

From Mocking The Draft:

'The idea is that Pittsburgh needs interior line help. Ben Roethlisberger is probably never going to get rid of the ball quicker, so it's imperative the Steelers' offensive line can hold onto blocks.

Interior linemen in the first round are pretty safe picks so I like this one. Maybe a bit high for Iupati but the Steelers don't have a ton of holes outside of the offensive line.

Iupati should be one of the first pieces in rebuilding that Steelers line.
