Steelers 2022 NFL Draft: Final first-round mock draft with trades
The Steelers seem to have their sights set on a quarterback and they could be a part of trade activity in the first round of the draft.
The Steelers have had their eyes set on quarterbacks throughout this draft process. They will likely select one with their first-round pick unless an unexpected player falls to them. It would take a monumental talent of a prospect to drop to 20 for them to consider anything other than one of these top quarterbacks in the draft.
The event sees the first 32 picks involve many different trades as the night moves along. More of these moves could happen this time around as there are many question marks. There is no clear-cut number one pick, and the quarterbacks have some concerns that come with selecting them.
Many rumors have been swirling both about some of the top picks in this draft and some trade speculation as well. It will be interesting what some teams do as they evaluate and focus on different players. Some might find one prospect better than others and feel the need to go up and get them.
The top ten could be very active on night one as different franchises grade a player so high that they need to go up and select them. It seems that one of these quarterbacks could lead to a team or two moving up and selecting a signal-caller. New Orleans seems primed to do this after an earlier trade with the Philadelphia Eagles.
Pittsburgh could be another team that sniffs around the thought of moving up from their current spot at 20. They are very interested in Malik Willis and the type of raw skills that he comes with. They have him ranked as their top option at the position in this class and that could lead to unusual circumstances for the club.
