Analysis Could Steelers Trade into Top Ten? Published 4 months ago on April 25, 2019 By Parker Hurley 3shares Share Tweet Flipboard Comment EmailWhile it is not something they are known for doing desperate times could call for desperate measures. The Pittsburgh Steelers have reportedly been calling teams in the top ten with eyes on a trade up. This obviously comes in connection with their need at linebacker and reports that both Devin White and Devin Bush will be taken by the 10th overall pick. Schefter did mention that linebacker would be the target if the team does move up. From Schefter latest SportsCenter hit: "All signs" point Kyler Murray to #Cardinals Drew Lock "gonna be a 1st-round pick" & "on #Giants radar"#Steelers "have made calls" re: trading into top 10, likely targeting LB Josh Rosen likelier to be traded Friday. Watch NYG, MIA, LAC — Evan Silva (@evansilva) April 25, 2019 Coming out of the NFL combine, most prognosticators linked the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to LSU linebacker Devin White at the 5th overall pick. The Bucs lost Kwon Alexander and are clearly interested in replacing him with the speedy Butkus award winner. This has created a totem pole effect that has shot Devin Bush up boards. Bush had a combine that was equally as impressive as White and even impressed in the interviews. Mention Steelers Now and save $10! With other options at linebackers sliding down the board, it is starting to look like a two linebacker draft with a bunch of questionable fits afterward. The desperation from teams to add the only other safe linebacker in the class, along with White going off of the board at five has driven the stock of Bush into the top ten. Many have connected the Broncos to Bush and it makes a ton of sense. Head coach Vic Fangio is known for forming his defense around the linebacker position from Patrick Willis to Roquan Smith in the top ten at his previous stops. Fangio could very easily have his eyes on Bush to be his next stud in the middle, and GMs across the NFL seems to know it. What is interesting to note about Denver and their infatuation with Bush is that the Steelers discussed picking up the 9th overall pick from Buffalo when they were trying to deal Antonio Brown. The third and the fifth that they acquired from Oakland is enough to get them to pick 13 or 14 according to the draft value chart. The Steelers seem to know that they need to get to eight or nine to get Devin Bush and they are not calling off their efforts yet. Stay tuned to see if they pull off their biggest trade since Troy Polamalu and Santonio Holmes, which Mike Tomlin and Kevin Colbert actually brought up while talking to reporter on Monday. 3shares Share Tweet Flipboard Comment Email Related Topics:Devin BushfeaturedNFLNFL DraftPittsburgh Steelers Up Next Winners, Losers From Day 1 of 2019 NFL Draft Don't Miss Pittsburgh Steelers 7-round Mock Draft Parker Hurley Steelers Now analyst.
