3 players Steelers could trade before the 2022 NFL Draft
The Steelers could be making some trades come draft day and these names could be on the move.
The Steelers have been working hard during the offseason and those long hours will continue. The franchise has shown interest in most of the top quarterbacks in this draft class. They might have to trade up to get one that they covet and that could lead to big trade packages going the other way.
It has been a great start to the offseason with the free agency process to start. They were able to sign some team-friendly deals to fill starting holes across the roster. That has taken away the immediate urgency to address those needs in the upcoming draft.
Eyes have been on the Steelers brass as they go on their annual tour of pro days. History has shown that if this club doesn’t come to see a player during their pro day, they won’t take you in the first round of the draft. That has spoken volumes and their desire to get a quarterback into the building to compete for a starting spot as a rookie is there.
Kevin Colbert and Mike Tomlin have attended each pro day that holds a top talent at QB for the 2022 NFL Draft. It has been an obvious need, but it is somewhat shocking that the team has been so outspoken about acquiring a player for the position. It will be hard to pick a player toward the best in this group, but it would need a trade.
Getting up to a spot in the early portions of the first round will need a big haul to acquire it. Getting there could need a roster player in the trade package, along with many picks included. Selecting a young signal-caller could also cause a shakeup for current roster players standings on the team.
