The Tribune-Review sports writers Joe Rutter, Chris Adamski and Tim Benz have dug into what the Pittsburgh Steelers are looking for in the 2019 NFL Draft, including who they might land. They also looked at all the top players available at each position.
The Steelers have 10 overall picks (three of the first 66), starting with the 20th overall in the first round, highest since they took Ohio State linebacker Ryan Shazier with the 15th choice in 2014.
The 2019 NFL Draft at Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tenn, kicks off on Thursday at 8 p.m. and continues through Saturday.
Trading up in the first round so the Pittsburgh Steelers can snag an inside linebacker will require parting with one or more of their draft picks, depending on how high they improve from No. 20.Read more.
The Pittsburgh Steelers have a 42% better chance of making a good draft pick this weekend than in some years. Of course, that’s also a 42% increased chance of screwing one up. Read more.
It was setting up so perfectly for Trace McSorley. By returning for his senior season at Penn State, McSorley would avoid being lumped into the quarterback-heavy draft class in 2018 when four passers went in the top 10 and five went in the first round for the first time in two decades. Read more.
The low point for running back prospects came in the 2013-14 classes, when not one ball carrier was selected in the first round of the NFL Draft in either year. Read more.
If it’s April, then the Pittsburgh Steelers must be planning their strategy on selecting a wide receiver in the NFL Draft.
Since Ben Roethlisberger was drafted in 2004, the Steelers have taken at least one wide receiver in 13 of 14 drafts. In nine of those 13 drafts, they addressed the position in the third round or higher. Read more.
Since Heath Miller retired after the 2015 season, the Pittsburgh Steelers have used the free agency and trade markets to replenish the tight end position. Could the draft be the avenue of choice in 2019? Read more.
The Pittsburgh Steelers built up enough depth at tackle in recent years that they weathered extended absences by starter Marcus Gilbert the past two seasons. Read more.
The last time the Pittsburgh Steelers drafted a guard was in 2012, when David DeCastro fell to them with the No. 24 overall pick.
The last time the Steelers selected a center was in 2010, when Maurkice Pouncey was the No. 18 player off the board. Read more.
Coming off a season in which they each faced outsiders brought in to compete for their jobs, kicker Chris Boswell and punter Jordan Berry received financial votes of confidence from the Pittsburgh Steelers. Read more.
Artie Burns had tears in his eyes as he stood at his locker after a Saturday practice in September, two days before the Pittsburgh Steelers would play their third game of the season. Read more.
When the Pittsburgh Steelers drafted Sean Davis in 2016, they were trying to get younger at the two safety positions, where the starters had a combined age of 60-plus years spanning the previous six seasons. Read more.
Few positions on the Pittsburgh Steelers offer as much stability as the defensive line.
While the Steelers have added first-round picks at outside linebacker, safety and cornerback in recent draft classes, in addition to signing free agents to fill other starting spots, they have maintained the status quo in the trenches. Read more.
General manager Kevin Colbert knows the Pittsburgh Steelers didn’t adequately replace Ryan Shazier in the middle of the defense last season.
One peek at the record is affirmation. Read more.
A LOOK BACK AT PAST DRAFTS
It’s much too early, of course, to pass final judgment on the 2017 draft less than 24 months after it took place. But that doesn’t mean conclusions can’t be drawn. Read more.
A quick glance at the 2016 NFL Draft reveals what appears to be a predictable outcome: The top five picks and six of the first seven have made at least one Pro Bowl in their first three seasons, but only one other first-rounder has. Read more.
Though the story has yet to be completely written, the 2015 draft isn’t destined to be remembered as one of the NFL’s best. The Heisman-winning quarterbacks taken with the top two picks haven’t been awful, but perhaps the best you can say about them is they’ve been underwhelming. Read more.
Offensive players made up five of the top seven and eight of the top 12 picks of the 2014 NFL Draft. But it is defense that it will be known for. Read more.
TIM BENZ ON THE DRAFT
Looking for a trade partner in the NFL Draft to get the Steelers in position to seize LSU’s Devin White or Michigan’s Devin Bush?
This will work.
Well, it would for the Steelers anyway. Read more.
So, who is going to mess this up for the Steelers?
During last year’s NFL Draft, it was Chicago, Tennessee and Dallas. They were the teams that nabbed the three first-round, pure inside linebackers that would have perfectly meshed within the defensive system in Pittsburgh. Read more.
For as great of a name as Rock Ya-Sin may be, I think it would sound a lot better if it is read during the second round of the NFL Draft for the Pittsburgh Steelers, as opposed to the first. Read more.
The Steelers likely won’t replace Antonio Brown in this week’s NFL Draft.
Let’s be honest. They likely won’t ever replace him. Read more.
