Pittsburgh Steelers: 7-Round Mock Draft
Keith Srakocic/Associated Press

The Pittsburgh Steelers have got a lot of work to do if they’re to return to contention in 2014.

The team’s already parted ways with the likes of Emmanuel Sanders, Jerricho Cotchery, Jonathan Dwyer, Ziggy Hood, Al Woods, Larry Foote and LaMarr Woodley. Brett Keisel and Ryan Clark also seem more unlikely to return with each passing day.

Wow, that’s a mouthful.

Clearly, the Steelers have high hopes for this year’s draft class. Now, the question becomes who the team is targeting and at what positions.

Will the Steelers look for Ike Taylor’s successor on Day 1? Or will they prioritize a wide receiver to replace Sanders and Cotchery? What about the lack of depth at linebacker and on the defensive line?

Read on to find out some possible solutions to those questions.

 

Author’s Note: I’ve included compensatory third- and fifth-round selections in this mock draft. Those projections are per Philly.com’s Jimmy Kempski. Kempski does a wonderful job of explaining the logic behind why teams are awarded these compensatory picks.
