2012 NFL Draft Results: Ohio State OT Mike Adams Selected By Pittsburgh Steelers In Second Round

Former Ohio State offensive tackle Mike Adams fell a little bit, but will head into a solid environment after being selected by the Pittsburgh Steelers with the No. 56 overall pick in the second round of the 2012 NFL Draft.

When he was on the field, Adams was great at Ohio State. He was suspended five games in 2011 for the tattoo and merchandise scandal. He was suspended in 2009 for marijuana use and possession. But has he gotten over his character issues? He tested positive for marijuana at the NFL combine in February, but was adament afterward that he had learned from his mistakes.

Adams started the last 23 games he played in and won the team's award for top offensive lineman in 2011.
