Realistic draft day trades Steelers should consider

1. Steelers trade back from pick 32

Ever since the Steelers were officially awarded the 32nd overall pick following the trade of Chase Claypool to the Bears, I had a feeling that Pittsburgh was going to look to move back from this spot. While having essentially a second first-round pick is nice, it seems like a lot of the talent that they might want in the second frame could be had a little later.

While they could stay put and have their selection of players that fall out of the first round, that pick will also have a lot of value. There will be a lot of teams that want to be in that position, and the Steelers could reap another third-round pick just by moving back a couple of spots. They could also land multiple mid-round picks in order to bridge the gap between their fourth and seventh-round pick.

If the Steelers move back anywhere, 32 makes a lot of sense. The team can still land quite a few picks and still grab a strong player that could contribute early. Pick 32 will have multiple suitors, and I won’t be shocked to see the team move back to the top of the second day of the draft.

I fully expect the Steelers to be more active on draft day than they have been in the past. They have picks and players that can help move this team up and down, and the team can move up if needed or add extra picks. These four trades seem like the most likely for the team once the draft begins.
