3. The Steelers may be looking to move one of their second-round picks

Having dealt the 120th overall pick in the fourth round to move up three spots in the first, the Pittsburgh Steelers draft capital in the middle rounds is extremely scarce. After their 80th overall selection in the third round, Pittsburgh will not pick again until the seventh round as the draft order currently stands.

I do not think it would be wise to trade out of the 32nd spot due to the vast amount of talent remaining after the first 31 picks, and considering the team still needs a cornerback or middle linebacker that can contribute this fall. Pick 49 however, could be in play to help the Steelers recoup some of those picks from rounds four through six.
