Steelers expansion draft plan if a new team joined the NFL
Dwayne Haskins, QB
Dwayne Haskins would be one of the first selections in this expansion draft. It is unlikely that there will be another player with his draft pedigree available. He is not a good player right now by any means but there could be some untapped potential there. If they can access that, then this would be a solid start to this franchise.
The Steelers would lose this player but then remove Derek Watt from the selection list in response. Haskins would probably be one of the best options in the pool of players there and his youth would be another enticing option for this draft process. He would get what he always wanted, a second chance to be a starting quarterback in the NFL. It would be tough on a terrible expansion team but he could show growth on and off the field to continue his career going forward.
Henry Mondeaux, DL
Henry Mondeaux remained exposed after the Haskins pick and gets selected here. His playing experience might be somewhat limited in the NFL but the snaps he got last year enticed this new team just enough. Mondeaux gets selected here and the Steelers respond by taking Antoine Brooks Jr. off the selection list. The new franchise in the league gets a player with some depth and starting capabilities going forward that is still young at just 25 years old. The black and gold end up losing two of their five that were made available to the new crew and that is not so bad. They would have replacements ready to go both for their third-string quarterback spot and at the last roster spot for a defensive lineman.
The Steelers could lose some players if an expansion draft was held tomorrow. It is unlikely that they would lose an important player but they could lose someone.
