Another installment where Ladd McConkey makes it into the mock draft yet again. The Steelers might move on from Allen Robinson II after this season as things have just not worked out for one reason or another thus far. That could always change, but the Steelers love to keep their supply at receiver deep and full of weapons. Kind of ironic since their offense is terrible anyway.

Anyhow, McConkey is a smaller receiver, but he has a good frame. He can play both in the slot and on the outside, but many expect him to slide into a slow receiver role at the next level. Another bonus to his game is special teams and all the snaps he can give you there. He has experience at Georgia as their returner and that should get Tomlin's interest peaked.

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

Michael Pratt (QB)

Another quarterback makes the list here with Michael Pratt out of Tulane. No, he is probably not going to take Kenny Pickett's job, but he will be able to develop and potentially become the backup of the future for the Steelers. He had a breakout year last season, and this time around will be his ultimate draft guide for where he is taken in the upcoming event.

Zion Tupuola-Fetui (EDGE)

Edge isn't really a need for Pittsburgh in this draft, but having Zion Tupuola-Fetui sitting there did raise a few eyebrows in the draft room. Markus Golden could be gone after this season so all of the depth duties would fall on Nick Herbig. There could be a need for another depth piece or two to fight for roster spots in training camp. Tupuola-Fetui has a high ceiling and needs to prove that this year before entering the draft.

Tyler Davis (DT)

Again, defensive line could be another sneaky need for the Steelers this upcoming draft. They have a chunk of guys on expiring deals after this season, so they will probably need to re-load their depth in the defensive trenches. Tyler Davis could be that prospect to fill the depth void for Pittsburgh. He has perfect size of what the black and gold look for in their defensive front.
