Steelers 7-round mock draft: Pittsburgh can’t ignore big-time WR in round two
6th Round: Antonio Gandy-Golden
Wide receiver, Liberty
The Steelers have not shied away from drafting two wide receivers in the past under Mike Tomlin, and there’s not a good enough reason to believe they won’t consider doubling up at the position this April. Antonio Gandy-Golden is a small school product, but a big football player. At 6’4” and 222 pounds, his movement skills are more like someone four inches smaller and fifteen pounds lighter. Golden is a perfect developmental prospect on a team that is only three deep at the receiver position. He will need some time to develop, but with the right coaching, he has upside as a number two receiver in a very talented WR class.
7th Round: Nigel Warrior
The Steelers need to find some help at the safety position. However, with Minkah Fitzpatrick earning All-Pro honors at 23 years old and Terrell Edmunds being a former first-round pick in 2018 makes it hard to believe that they will spend a high pick here. Sean Davis was a solid player who didn’t give up many big plays in the back end, but he will be hitting the road this offseason. In the 7th round, Pittsburgh would be lucky to land a player that will make the roster. But given the severe lack of depth at the position, perhaps the versatile Nigel Warrior will have a better chance than most.
The Steelers have many needs that clearly need to be addressed, and what they do in free agency will help sort some of them out. Brandon Aiyuk is a terrific prospect who would be really hard to pass on. Giving Roethlisberger some weapons in his final seasons will be on Pittsburgh’s to-do list this offseason.
