Recruiting rewind II: How six Steelers were rated coming out of high school

Here is the second part of the Pittsburgh Steelers' projected offensive starters in 2015 and how they were rated coming out of high school. Only three of the 11 starters overall received higher than a three-star ranking from Rivals.com, and two of those were on the offensive line. Here is a look at the line, as well as tight end Heath Miller.

Miller: One of the best tight ends in Steelers' history actually signed with the University of Virginia to play quarterback as SuperPrep's No. 15 overall player in talent-rich Virginia. Miller played tight end on the scout team while redshirting in 2001 and stayed at the position. He won the Mackey Award, given to the top tight end in the county, in 2004, becoming the first ACC player to attain that honor.

OT Kelvin Beachum: One of the Steelers' best late-round finds in recent history was also lightly regarded coming out of Mexia High School in Texas in 2007. Rivals.com gave Beachum, the Steelers' starting left tackle, a two-star rating. The 2012 seventh-round draft pick did not appear among ESPN RecruitingNation's top 100 guards or tackles and signed with SMU.

OT Marcus Gilbert: Gilbert was one of three tackles from Florida who were among ESPN RecruitingNation's top 10 players at the position in 2006. Gilbert, the Steelers' starting right tackle, was the ninth-rated tackle nationally by ESPN and a four-star recruit, according to Rivals.com. He signed with Florida and started 27 of 53 career games in Gainesville.

G Ramon Foster: Foster signed with the University of Tennessee in 2004 as a Rivals.com three-star recruit. He started three seasons in Knoxville after redshirting as a freshman and made the Steelers as an undrafted free agent in 2009. Foster has started 71 of 86 regular-season games he has played for the Steelers.

G David DeCastro: ESPN RecruitingNation rated DeCastro as the seventh-best center coming out of Bellevue High School in Washington in 2008 and Rivals.com had him as a three-star recruit. DeCastro moved to guard after redshirting his first season at Stanford and eventually blossomed into a consensus first-team All-American. The Steelers' starting right guard -- and 2012 first-round pick -- has established as one of the anchors of the offensive line.

C Maurkice Pouncey: He and his twin brother, Mike, were ESPN RecruitingNation's No. 9 and No. 16 guards, respectively, in 2007 coming out of Lakeland High School in Florida. Maurkice Pouncey, a four-star Rivals.com recruit, became the first player at the University of Florida to win the Rimington Trophy. He left Florida after winning the award given to the nation's best center in 2009 and the Steelers took Pouncey in the first round of the 2010 draft. He has since made four Pro Bowls.
