Round 1, 24. Jalen Mayfield, OT, Michigan

Finally, the Steelers can select a tackle with their first selection in the draft. Jalen Mayfield seems to be more of a right tackle at the next level but he could slide over to the left side. He and Chuks Okorafor will battle it out for the starting position in training camp.

Round 2, 55. Brevin Jordan, TE

Brevin Jordan would be a good choice in the second round but his lack of blocking is a problem. His ability to be a big threat in the receiving game is very enticing and he would be the best tight end on the roster on day one.

Round 3, 87. Dayo Odeyingbo, EDGE, Vanderbilt

This seems more like the potential range of selecting an edge rusher for the black and gold. They need good depth players but not a starter and this third to fourth-round area seems like the most plausible option. Dayo Odeyingbo has a great chance of being a nice moldable player going forward as he learns behind two talented starters.

Round 4, 128. Keith Taylor, CB, Washington

Keith Taylor is not talked about a lot like his teammate at Washington, Elijah Molden. Taylor is a nice option in the fourth round as the need for a corner is fairly high on the board. Getting this player will help bring in competition for the slot corner void and probably the starter for the upcoming season.

Round 4, 140. Adetokunbo Ogundeji, EDGE, Notre Dame

Adetokunbo Ogundeji is another nice selection in the fourth-round and brings some amazing depth at the position after selecting an edge rusher in the third round. It might be a little too close for the liking of many but this would sure up that position for years to come.
