SteelerNation is no doubt still reveling in the surprise availability of RG David DeCastro, which only leads to incredible optimism for what lies in tow for round 2.

This is oftentimes the high potential pick - the freakishly athletic player who has upside potential, but some of them - Limas Sweed, Bruce Davis, Alonzo Jackson - flat-out bust, while some of them turn out very well - LaMarr Woodley.

It remains to be seen who the Steelers will be looking at, but there are still lots of excellent prospects on the board, particularly among the inside linebackers group. While they won't target one specific position, getting the right player who happens to be an inside linebacker could be a benefit for the Steelers in the future.

Outside of that, it's the Friday portion of the draft, you'll be off work/out of school soon, so stick around BTSC, we're feelin' great about what's coming for the rest of the draft.
