With the 24th pick the Steelers select Dontari Poe DT Memphis
The Steelers are shocked that Poe is still on the board. He gives the team an injection of youth on their aging D-line, and eventual replacement for Casey Hampton at NT. Dont'a Hightower and Mark Barron were also considered due to their holes at ILB and Troy's age at SS, but players of Poe's ability are rare and almost never available this low in the draft. The Steelers stick to their board and take Poe.
