Good Draft Thursday to you Steelers’ Fans!!
After medical tests, physical tests, I.Q. tests etc, the NFL Draft is finally here. If you’re reading this you care about the Steelers and what they will do at pick number 28. If you want the list of guys we believe are on the table at 28 then I highly suggest you read this from Ian. What I can tell you without any hesitation is that there will be controversy over the Steelers’ selection. It could be the right position but the wrong guy… It could be the right guy but not a position of need (if that makes sense)… And heck, maybe there’s even a trade we can debate! If you want to be surprised when the Commissioner delivers the pick then I suggest you stay off of social media.
Hard to believe that Antonio Brown was a sixth round pick isn’t it?
Tweet of the Day… Do with this what you will.
Browns continue to keep the decision on their No. 1 pick a secret, but there is a mounting belief from HCs and GMs around the league that Cleveland will take Baker Mayfield.

Here’s a list of players I’ve seen “mocked” to the Steelers by experts from across the league… Mike Mayock, NFLN, Sony Michel… Daniel Jeremiah, NFLN, Jaire Alexander… Bucky Brooks, NFLN, Rashaan Evans… Pete Schrager, NFLN, Josh Jackson… Rhett Lewis, NFLN, Mason Rudolph… Charles Davis, NFLN, Derrius Guice… Charley Casserly, NFLN, Rashaan Evans… R.J. White, CBS, Rashaan Evans… Chris Trapasso, CBS, Derrius Guice… Pete Prisco, CBS, Mike Hughes… Will Brinson, CBS, Rashaan Evans… Peter King, MMQB, Jaire Alexander… SportingNews.com, Rashaan Evans… Matt Miller, Bleacher Report, Derrius Guice… walterfootball.com, Josh Jackson… Ed Bouchette, Post-Gazette, Leighton VanderEsch… Ray Fittapaldo, Rashaan Evans… Josh Norris, NBC, Derrius Guice… profootballtalk.com, Leighton VanderEsch
If you aren’t sure who to watch it depends on what you’re looking for. I think Mike Mayock at NFLN does the best overall job of breaking down the players but ESPN’s overall production is a little bit better. In other words, get fresh batteries in your remote.
Here’s my bold prediction for the draft… I think Baltimore will trade up for a quarterback.
Another prediction I have is that Jerry Jones will have WAY too much air time.
Enjoy the Draft Steeler Nation! We’ll be here to keep you covered over the next three days with honest takes on all of the Steelers’ picks.
