We are about two weeks away from the NFL draft as clubs try and get everything settled before the clock starts to tick. Every team will hope to get their prized prospect, but that does not happen for most that enter the event. The top prospects will go to some of the worst teams from the 2022 campaign as they pick early in the night.

The Steelers have a lot of picks in the top three rounds of the upcoming draft. They will try to plug their existing holes across the roster before the event expires. It is going to be interesting to watch how the different days unfold, with night one holding a lot of interest. Plenty of situations could play out for the black and gold, but these scenarios in this article could make the fans concerned.

Trading up for anything but a top tackle prospect is a bad idea

Moving up in the first round is not a popular idea with most of the fan base in Pittsburgh. It could make a lot of sense if the Steelers desperately want to find an answer at left tackle in this draft class. Paris Johnson Jr. will likely go in the top ten, which might be too rich for the club to trade up to.

Perhaps, moving up five spots or so to pick someone like Broderick Jones or Peter Skoronski would be the most manageable trade-up scenario. It would still likely cost a pretty penny to move up those hypothetical draft slots if Jones or Skoronski were still available. It seems like the Steelers have more interest in Jones out of the two, but it might not be a realistic trade situation anyhow.
