Pittsburgh Steelers 7-Round Mock Draft

Pittsburgh+Steelers+7-Round+Mock+Draft

 

Round 1

 

Pick No. 24: Najee Harris / Running Back / Alabama

No doubt the best running back in this year’s draft class and can be a big pick up for the Steelers. The Steelers showed last year that their run game desperately needs some help. So with this pick I see them taking the best running back in the draft. Harris resembles the league’s current best running back Derrick Henry very well. He could bring an explosive new element to this already dangerous Steelers offense.

 

Round 2

 

Pick No. 55: Brevin Jordan / Tight End / Miami (Florida)

Arguably one of the top three tight ends in this year’s draft, Brevin Jordan could fill a much needed hole on the Pittsburgh offense. He was a playmaker at Miami and could bring some of that to Pittsburgh. He would be a great fit here and could learn a bit from the vetran leadership of Eric Ebron.

Round 3

Pick No. 88: Walker Little / Offensive Tackle / Stanford

Around this time last year Walker Little was considered one of the top three offensive lineman in this year’s draft class. One of the Steelers biggest struggles this year just so happened to be the offensive line. Little could fill some big shoes on this Steelers team and could give our run game some much needed help.

Round 4

Pick No. 129: William Bradley-King / Edge / Baylor

Although he is not the biggest name in this year’s draft, William Bradley-King could easily become a role player on this scary Pittsburgh defense. Bud Dupree is now gone and with the Titans, so this might be the guy that we need to replace that hole.

Pick No. 140: Paulson Adebo / Cornerback / Stanford

With Mike Hilton now on the Bengals, it is time to start looking for some help in the secondary. Paulson Adebo could bring some help. Having Cam Sutton back to help with the coverage as well as vetran Joe Haden and now a young Paulson Adebo could be a scary sight for wide receivers.

Round 5

NO PICK

Round 6

Pick No. 216: Jimmy Morrissey / Center / Pittsburgh

The Steelers have already started to look for their future at the center position after long time Pro Bowl center Maurkice Pouncey announced his retirement earlier this offseason. Morrissey is a Pennsylvania native as well as a Pitt graduate and could be a perfect fit for the Steelers.

 

Round 7

Pick No. 246: Dez Fitzpatrick / Wide Receiver / Louisville

The Steelers are historically known for taking and developing wide receivers from the draft. The last time they didn’t take one in the draft was 2011. So if Dez Fitzpatrick is sitting on the board in the 6th or 7th round I would be surprised if Pittsburgh picked him up. He could easily develop into a good wide out for years to come if they take him.

 

Pick No. 255:  Paris Ford / Safety / Pittsburgh

As much as I find it unlikely that Paris Ford falls this far back in the draft, if he does it could be a big pick up for the Steelers. They need some depth at the safety position and Ford can give them that. He has much potential and could do some big things for the team.
