Scenario 3- The Steelers trade back in the draft with the Kansas City Chiefs/Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the 32nd pick and an extra second-round pick

While we will not know until Sunday about who will have picks 31 and 32, the Steelers should be right on making a phone call with one of the two teams about moving back in the draft. If the Steelers are undecided about who to take with the 24th pick, a trade back would be beneficial. Currently, the Steelers own 9 picks in this year’s draft, with 2 of those picks being in the 7th round alone. The Steelers are on the cusp of being on a rebuild if they do not add the needed players, and adding an extra second-round pick would be great.

Both the Bucs and Chiefs will be looking to add new depth to their rosters, and the Steelers would be a great trade partner. The Steelers could fall back to the 32nd pick and draft Zaven Collins, the linebacker from Tusla, or Liam Eichenberg, the offensive tackle from Notre Dame, as stated earlier. The extra second-round pick could also allow the Steelers to take a running back like Trey Sermon, who would instantly become the lead back. The Steelers may even have the chance to get more than an extra second-round pick, but if the only package includes a second, they should take it, given they do not have many early-round picks.

The NFL Draft will be here sooner than you think, and while I hope the Steelers are smart with the 24th pick, these three scenarios I have listed are all great possibilities if anyone of them were to happen.
