Pittsburgh Steelers have more than enough reason to be excited about their team entering the 2024 NFL Draft. Last year, Omar Khan and assistant GM Andy Weidl took over the front office. Collectively, they knocked their first draft out of the park.

While their 2023 postseason run ended abruptly with a Wild Card loss to the Bills, the future is starting to look bright thanks to an impressive 2023 draft class that included players like OT Broderick Jones, CB Joey Porter Jr., DL Keeanu Benton, and EDGE Nick Herbig.

Now Khan and Weidl will have a chance to go two-for-two, and Steelers fans will be rising to their feet when Pittsburgh is on the clock in the first round of the 2024 NFL Draft.

But what time can we expect that to occur? Not every fan is going to have the time or patience to sit down and watch the clock tick down on every other team before the Steelers are up with their selection. Here's what you need to know.

What time will the Steelers be on the clock in Round 1?

The 2024 NFL Draft begins at 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time tonight. Each team has 10 minutes to make their selection. The Pittsburgh Steelers hold the 20th overall selection. Doing some simple math, they could be on the clock roughly 190 minutes into the draft (or 3 hours and 10 minutes).

If every team took the full 10 minutes before making their selection, this means the Steelers would be picking around 11:10 p.m. ET. However, not every team milks the entire 10-minute clock before making their pick, and this could come much sooner.

To ensure that you don't miss Pittsburgh's first-round pick being announced, fans should tune in for the window of the NFL Draft between 10:45 p.m. to 11:30 p.m.

Of course, there's always a chance that the Pittsburgh Steelers could trade up or down in the first round. This is something we likely won't know until the moment it happens during the draft.

For those who aren't available to watch the draft, it's a good idea to follow the team's official social media accounts closely in the event of a trade.
