Steelers 2022 NFL 7-round mock drafts decided by a computer simulation
Overall grade for each simulation
Simulation 1, Grade: C-
This simulation saw the Steelers stay away from the quarterback position entirely. That is very unlikely to happen as the team has done a ton of homework on the position. They got a couple of nice selections in the seven rounds, but this isn’t the most exciting draft class.
Simulation 2, Grade: B-
Simulation two saw Pittsburgh address some of their more pressing needs earlier on in the draft and filled out the rest. They could’ve looked at the defensive line sooner, but they plugged holes where they needed starters. This was probably the best draft class that the computer-generated when compared to the rest.
Simulation 3, Grade: B-
This scenario has some good qualities to it. The team worked on their offensive line and at the worst upgraded the center spot and added depth at tackle. They also got some roster spots filled with a receiver that is speedy and could play in the slot. They also have other depth pieces coming in this rookie class as well.
Simulation 4, Grade: B-
The trade back from the first round was an interesting option and it did bring some extra players onto this team. They got major needs taken care of in the second round and addressed other issues in the later rounds. This wasn’t a bad trade-down scenario and the Steelers would like this option if it played out accordingly.
The Steelers actually got some nice results in these different mock draft simulations. The computer addressed different needs and got some quality picks.
