Iowa OT Reilly Reiff, considered by some the second-best offensive tackle in this year's draft class, is still available at 22, within shouting distance of the Steelers No. 24 slot.

He could be an option for Pittsburgh, or perhaps, an option for another suitor, looking to trade up.

Granted, I just sang the benefits of trading up, particularly for OG David DeCastro (shhh...), but trading down is still a viable alternative. There are quality prospects without that one elite characteristic that defines a first-round pick.

But DeCastro is not a second-round player. He's an elite prospect at a position of need for the Steelers. Even in deep, unlikely scenarios would the Steelers have figured DeCastro to be within one pick.

But...we mentioned earlier the possibility of Baltimore trading up to leap-frog the Steelers and take a player of similar interest. Seems far more likely they'd want DeCastro just as much as the Steelers would.
