Keep up to date with all of the picks and trades made by the Pittsburgh Steelers this year with our very own 2022 NFL Draft tracker.

This offseason marks a big year of change for the Pittsburgh Steelers, and fans are going to want to tune in to the 2022 NFL Draft to see how Mike Tomlin and Kevin Colbert will begin to reshape this franchise.

In Colbert’s final season as general manager and with Ben Roethlisberger recently retired, many expect the Steelers to look for their next franchise quarterbacks. Based on their Pro Day visits, it’s safe to assume they may do just that this April.

Moving up in the first round could be an option if they really desire one of the top quarterbacks this year, but Pittsburgh doesn’t exactly have a surplus of draft capital to work with. Here’s everything Steelers fans need to know about the upcoming NFL Draft:

How many total picks are in the 2022 NFL Draft?

There will be a total of 262 selections made over the course of seven rounds in the 2022 NFL Draft. The sixth round will include the most picks (due to the way the compensatory formula worked out this year) with a total of 43 selections.

How much time between picks in each round of the 2022 NFL Draft?

In the first round of the NFL Draft, each team will have 10 minutes to make their selection or to trade out of their pick. In round two, this time reduces to 7 minutes per selection.

In rounds three through six, NFL teams will have just 5 minutes to make their pick when they are on the clock. And finally, this number is reduced to just 4 minutes in round seven.

What are compensatory picks in the NFL Draft?

Compensatory picks are awarded to teams to help make up for the loss of players in free agency that they are unable to retain. Based on the value of their contract earned in free agency with a new team, teams may be eligible for draft compensation the following year.

However, signing players from other teams in free agency works against the compensatory formula. According to the league, “the value of the compensatory free agents gained or lost by each team is totaled, and a team is awarded picks of equal value to the net loss of compensatory free agents, up to a maximum of four.”

What NFL team has the most picks in the 2022 NFL Draft?

Following the Tyreek Hill trade to the Miami Dolphins, the Kansas City Chiefs are now tied with the Jacksonville Jaguars for the most picks in the upcoming 2022 NFL Draft. Both teams will make 12 selections this year, barring trades.

What are undrafted free agents and when can they be signed?

As soon as the final selection is made in the 2022 NFL Draft, undrafted-free agents can sign with whichever club reaches out to them. Undrafted free agents are players who are not selected by an NFL team in any of the seven rounds of the NFL Draft.

How many picks do the Steelers have in the 2022 NFL Draft?

The Pittsburgh Steelers are set to have seven total selections in the 2022 NFL Draft. Their original fourth, fifth, and sixth-round picks have all been traded away, but they own picks from the Chiefs and Jets as well as a fourth-round compensatory pick for the loss of Bud Dupree in free agency last year.
