When it comes to building a team, the Pittsburgh Steelers do it through the draft. While the players selected in the first two rounds get all of the attention, it is the late-round sleepers who help build a team that can compete for championships.

Over the years, the Steelers have found a number of late-round sleepers who have not only contributed, but also earned a starting job. Last season alone, they had four players in the starting lineup drafted between the fifth and seventh rounds.

Brett Keisel and Kelvin Beachum were both seventh-round picks, while Vince Williams and Steelers MVP Antonio Brown were sixth-round selections.

The Steelers will look to add to this late-round draft success by finding some diamonds in the rough. Here are seven sleepers who would be perfect fits for the Steelers.
