2021 NFL Draft

CBS Sports’ 3-Round Mock Draft has Steelers Taking RB, LT, TE with Top Picks



CBS Sports released their three-round mock draft on Monday, and have the Pittsburgh Steelers selecting a running back, offensive tackle and tight end.

Like many previous mock drafts, CBS’s Ryan Wilson has the Steelers selecting Alabama running back Najee Harris with the No. 24 overall pick in the first round.

Harris was tremendous during his senior season in Tuscaloosa, rushing for 1,466 yards and 26 touchdowns. He also improved his stock as a receiver in 2020, catching 43 passes for 425 yards and four more scores.

Not only did Harris win the National Championships with the Crimson Tide last month, but he was also named a unanimous All-American and awarded the Doak Walker Award for good measure.

In the second round, CBS Sports projects Pittsburgh to draft North Dakota State offensive tackle Dillon Radunz with the 55th-overall selection.

Measuring in at 6-foot-5 5/8 and 304 pounds, Radunz was dominant force for the FCS powerhouse. He did not allow a sack and was named a First-Team All-American in 2019, his junior season.

While he did not see much action in 2020 due to the FCS moving its season to the spring, Radunz did show out in the Bisons’ one-game showcase against Central Arkansas in October. He dominated in the run game, while also demonstrating length and mobility in pass protection.

Lastly, CBS Sports has the Steelers drafting Notre Dame tight end Tommy Tremble at at No. 88-overall in the third round.

A modern tight end physically, Tremble stands at 6-foot-4 and 248 pounds. While a capable a receiver, Tremble saw limited opportunities at Notre Dame given the nature of the position and their abundance of weapons. He has great speed for his size, but is also a more than capable blocker, according to NFL scouts.

Tremble caught 35 passes for 401 yards and four scores over a pair of seasons in South Bend.

The 2021 NFL Draft kicks off Thursday, April 29 in Cleveland.
