Edge defenders: 3rd-4th round

The Steelers could look to find an edge rusher as early as round two this year, but I don’t necessarily think that is where the value will be. I like Notre Dame’s Julian Okwara, but I think he will go in the second because of his tools.

While Josh Uche certainly isn’t guaranteed to make it back to Pittsburgh’s 3rd round pick, some other players could serve as quality depth options. Terrell Lewis is a high-upside player who the Steelers may be able to land in the third due to his extensive injury history.

In addition, players like Alex Highsmith, Alton Robinson, Bradlee Anae and Darrell Taylor poise good value in the middle rounds of the draft. Taking one of these players in the 3rd or 4th round would give the Steelers the flexibility to explore better value at pick 49.

Top Choices:

  1. Terrell Lewis, Round 3
  2. Alton Robinson, Round 4
  3. Alex Highsmith, Round 4
