After the Steelers traded away one of the best WRs in AB, watched their star RB Le’Veon Bell left for the New York Jets, and numerous other players move to greener pastures, we’ve also seen the team pivot and sign a few players of their own to fortify next season’s team, both from the inside and outside. Now we turn our attention towards the draft, and here is the allotment of picks they have, team needs after free agency, and some players that fit the profile of what the Steelers are looking at these respective positions.
