Round 1 Pick #28 LB Rashaan Evans Alabama

If Evans is available at 28 the Steelers need to jump on him. Evans comes from the linebacker factory of Alabama. He has great speed and insight. Needs some tackling help, but that will come I believe. Another option if he is available is Leighton Vander Esch of Boise State. Either way, I believe that the Steelers need to take a linebacker in round 1. With the loss of Ryan Shazier the Steelers also lost a lot of defensive leadership. A first round linebacker might bring the spark the defense needs.

Round 2 Pick #60 S Marcus Allen Penn State

This pick may be a bit biased as I am a huge Penn State fan. Allen has led the Nittany Lion defense the last 3+ years. His hard hitting ability reminds me of Mike Mitchell in his prime. Some hits Allen laid down I swear shook Beaver Stadium. Allen's open field tackling ability makes him a top target. And his hard hitting ability often discourages Quarterbacks from throwing to his side. A cornerback would also be an option with this pick.

Round 3 Pick #92 CB Isaac Yiadom Boston College

In my opinion Artie Burns is underachieving. The Steelers need another corner who can cover some of the top targets in the AFC. Cameron Sutton did not get much playing time last year due to an injury, so it will be interesting to see how he performs. However, I do not believe Pittsburgh should keep Coty Sensabaugh around.

Round 5 Pick #148 WR Quadree Henderson Pittsburgh

The Steelers always have a knack for finding the diamond in the rough when it comes to the wide receiver position. Henderson is right in their back yard and has the playmaking ability that could take Martavis Bryant's spot. He could also return punts and Kickoffs because of his speed.

Round 5 Pick #165 RB Mark Walton Miami (FL)

With the future of Bell up in the air. The Steelers need a speed guy in the backfield. They have their power guy in James Conner, but need speed. Ridley may work this year, but not in the future.

Round 7 Pick #220 DT Bilal Nicols Delaware

The Steelers have a knack of picking up good players from little known schools. This DT is powerful and pretty quick. He would be worth drafting.

Round 7 pick #246 OG Andrew Kirkland Washington

It never hurts to have good reserves especially when it comes to the offensive line. With the loss of Hubbard to the Browns, the Steelers could use another good backup.
