The Steelers drafted Marcus Gilbert, a LT-RT from Florida.

Marcus Gilbert is a 6-6.1, 330-pounder who played all four positions at Florida, mainly a tackle, but Steelers OL coach Sean Kugler said he can pull and could even end up at guard.

"He's a high energy, physical, versatile player," said Kugler. "He and Maurkice are best buds, so there's a chemistry there."

Here's the bio on the message board.
