Round 1, 24. Kwity Paye, EDGE, Michigan

Kwity Paye is the first-round selection for the Steelers in this simulation as well. He is a nice player but it is hard to believe that the team would select him with their first pick.

Round 2 TRADE (Steelers receive picks 61 & 22 4th rounder, BIlls get pick 55) 61. Landon Dickerson, OC, Alabama

Landon Dickerson in the second round after trading back is very impressive. This is a great selection but this is not very realistic when the draft actually starts. Even though this player is coming off a knee injury, it still seems like he will be an early second-round pick.

Round 3, 87. Kendrick Green, OG, Illinois

Kendrick Green was another player that the black and gold were watching during the Illinois pro day. He would be a nice selection for immediate depth behind the starting guards on the roster. Might be a little rich for a depth piece but he could always push Kevin Dotson with some healthy competition in training camp.

Round 3 TRADE (Steelers receive pick 104, Ravens receive picks 128 and 140) 104. Hunter Long, TE, Boston College

Trading up to get Hunter Long was a nice move as the team desperately needs tight ends. Long is one of the better options in this draft as he is a stable prospect moving forward. Staying behind Eric Ebron is good for him but bringing back Jesse James should still be an option even with the addition of this player.
