20. player. 55. The Pittsburgh need some help on their defense. Why go back to the basics and bolster their defensive line with a player who could be a foundation and anchor of the defensive front for years to come.
<p>An interior defensive lineman could be the Steelers focus in the first-round and with Alabama defensive tackle A’Shawn Robinson still on the board this late in the draft, he’s a player too good to pass up.</p>
<p>Robinson is a 6’4″ 320-pound defensive lineman who can play anywhere along the front, not just at the tackle position. He is a remarkable athlete given his size, with an incredible framework. Robinson is ridiculously strong and can push his blockers back off the line to disrupt the pocket.</p>
<p>Interior defensive lineman are also viewed as run defenders first and foremost, and Robinson excels in that area as well. His ability to push blockers back and handle double teams well allows him to clog up running lanes, forcing running backs to adjust and bounce to the outside, slowing them down in the process.</p>
<p>The Steelers could be walking away with one of the best draft day steals by getting Robinson in the late first-round.</p>. DT. Alabama. A'Shawn Robinson
