Steelers day three of the draft

The Steelers had a mixed bag during the draft. They landed some great value early in the draft, but the end of the draft led to some curious choices. Besides fourth-round pick Calvin Austin, one could argue about the value and fit of each of the remaining day three picks. It was a lackluster end to the draft for the team.

Starting off with Conner Heyward, the talented brother of Cameron Heyward has a clear path to the roster. He was a versatile weapon for Michigan State, and he will likely develop into a capable fullback and H-back. That said, most saw him as a seventh-round pick and thus a bit of a reach in the sixth round.

Even more puzzling was the seventh round. Mark Robinson has some potential as a linebacker, but he is extremely raw and isn’t a great athlete. The team also drafted a second quarterback in Chris Oladokun. While a fun player to watch, the track record for seventh-round quarterbacks is miserable. As well, most saw him as an undrafted free agent, so the value was again in question. It was a relatively weak way to end the draft for the team after a relatively good start to the process.
