Round 6, 216. Chris Rumph II, EDGE, Duke

Chris Rumph would be immediate depth at the position while he proved himself on special teams. He played well for the Duke program but he has room to grow. Getting depth is a good idea for this position as it lacks that mightily.

Round 7, 245. Dez Fitzpatrick, WR, Louisville

Dez Fitzpatrick here is a very nice selection for the Steelers. He would provide some competition in camp and maybe could show some flashes on special teams. Some scouts are higher on him than others but he could blossom into something special. He was on some bad teams during his college days but his production was steady. If he is given the right deployment then he really could develop into a nice receiver at the next level.

Round 7, 254. Darrick Forrest, S, Cincinnati

Darrick Forrest here is more of a competition battle with the bottom of the roster guys at the position. There is really no depth behind the two starters but perhaps Forrest could bring something new to the fold going forward.

Grade: C+

The issue with this mock draft is the tackle not being selected. It is a major need both at starting left tackle and depth behind that starter. It has some nice selections and fills some needs but it is missing some. Cornerback was also neglected and unless the team adds there in free agency, there will be a major hole still there.
