King Titan tells us:

This is probably one of the 3 or 4 "lock" picks in the draft. We know the first two picks, and Minnesota at 3 would be crazy to pass up the best tackle prospect in years. I wouldn't be surprised if the Steelers moved up to get Dont'a because they just released James Farrior and have a need at the position. When you look at him the first thing you notice is his crazy size, however he has the quickness and speed to not just be a 2 down linebacker down the road. If nobody moves up for him (Baltimore, Green Bay) then you can guarantee this pick.
