Pittsburgh Steelers 2021 NFL Draft Order
|6||216||from Tampa Bay|
- No. 216: Tampa Bay > Pittsburgh
- Tampa Bay traded a sixth-round selection to Pittsburgh for offensive tackle Jerald Hawkins and a seventh-round selection.
- No. 245: Pittsburgh > Miami
- Pittsburgh traded a sixth-round selection, 2020 first and fifth-round selections to Miami in exchange for a seventh-round selection, a 2020 fourth-round selection, and safety Minkah Fitzpatrick.
- No. 254: Pittsburgh > Baltimore
- Pittsburgh traded a fifth-round selection to Baltimore in exchange for defensive end Chris Wormley and a seventh-round selection.
Unlike previous offseasons, the Steelers will be looking to replace starters in several key areas.
With the retirement of C Maurkice Pouncey, and allowing OT Alejandro Villanueva and G Matt Feiler to leave in free agency, offensive line appears to be the biggest draft need for the Steelers, despite bringing in several veterans during free agency.
Most draft analysts concur that the Steelers will go with a running back as well, with a majority predicting the same name as their first round selection.
Depth at outside linebacker and cornerback are some holes to fill on the defensive side of the ball.
