TRADE: Pittsburgh Steelers receive picks 62 & 168. Philadelphia Eagles receive pick 58.

Offensive tackle. Jordan Morgan. . Jordan Morgan. 512. player. Jordan Morgan. . 2.

A trade back here that allows for the Steelers to get an extra pick on day three of the draft. They only have to move back four spots and take a right tackle out of Arizona State by the name of Jordan Morgan. He has a lot of experience there and the team will probably try and look at their options to try and upgrade the right side of the line.

Chuks Okorafor has not been the answer and there could be some savings found by letting him go. Dan Moore Jr. could slide over there, but his body of work in the NFL doesn't instill confidence in that transition. Adding someone like Morgan to compete with Moore for the starting right tackle job will only strengthen the offensive line moving forward.

Others considered in the second round of the Steelers mock draft:

Kris Jenkins (DT)

Defensive lineman is a spot that can never have enough depth as the Steelers are quickly learning. An injury or two and you have to rely on depth pieces to step up and practice squad guys to fill the newly vacant depth spots. Kris Jenkins is a high-pedigree guy who has the ability to stop the run but needs to show more in the pass rush department this year.

Rod Moore (S)

Rod Moore is another early name that could be an option to become a long-term answer at safety. He is grabby so that will cause him to not rise many draft boards as the process plays out. Other than that, he does have a good game that can complement what the Steelers like in the strong safety role. Moore is a name to monitor the closer the draft gets.

Jack Nelson (OT)

Jack Nelson is another interesting tackle option for the Steelers if they decide to put that need on the back burner knowing they have guys under contract for now. He is currently playing at left tackle, but he does have experience at playing right guard too. He would need to flip over to right tackle in the NFL, but he does have experience playing on that side already.
