The Pittsburgh Steelers have had a chance to digest all of the results of the NFL scouting combine along with the rest of us. With a belly full of knowledge, it is time for a brand-spanking new full Steelers mock draft.
This latest incarnation is heavily based on some of the names that really stood out at the scouting combine. This team desperately needs to get more athletic on both sides of the football. These picks would allow the Steelers to get younger, stronger and faster all over the field.
Included in this mock draft is also a third-round selection. Of course, the Steelers do not currently have a third-round selection. That was traded away in order to draft safety Shamarko Thomas in 2013. Nevertheless, the Steelers are almost certain to recoup that pick as a compensatory selection for free agents lost before the start of last season.
Best-case scenario with this draft would give the Steelers three opening day starters and potential for five long-term contributors on either offense or defense.
