The NFL draft is a marathon, not a sprint. Now that the event has become three days long, with two in prime time, it has become a battle of attrition on some level as well. While many teams have been making big moves, trading up and down in each of the first three rounds, the Pittsburgh Steelers have elected to stand pat.
And thus far, the strategy has really paid off. Pittsburgh has opted to draft the best player available rather than reach for particular positions of need. What it has yielded through two days are three players who could see significant playing time this season.
This team still has six draft picks and plenty of spots to upgrade. Fortunately, we are seeing just how deep this draft is with so many great players who are still on the board. Let’s look back at Friday and ahead to Saturday with everything you need to know.
