The Pittsburgh Steelers have nine picks in the 2014 NFL draft and a number of pressing needs at many positions. Luckily, this year's draft class is deep, allowing for the Steelers to fill many of these holes by adding rookies.
Their needs are wide-ranging, which means the team has the option of going in many directions with each selection. Needs, as always, will be balanced by the selection of the best players available, with the end goal being simply to improve.
The Steelers finished their last two seasons with 8-8 records and no postseason appearances. A return to their former dominance must require smart decision making in this year's draft.
Who could those players be? Here is a complete, seven-round mock draft for the Steelers that could shed some light on their selections next month.
