Poll Poll: Grading the Steelers 2019 Draft Published 4 months ago on April 29, 2019 By Steelers Now 2shares Share Tweet Flipboard Comment EmailThe 2019 NFL Draft is over and the Steelers certainly made a splash, filling their most pressing need on the first day. In an uncharacteristic move for the usually staid team, the Steelers moved up in the Draft, from 20 to 10 and selected Michigan inside linebacker Devin Bush. Bush was widely regarded as the second best inside linebacker in the draft after Devin White and virtually every pundit had him being taken before the Steelers picked in the 1st round. The trade cost the Steelers their 2nd round pick this year and a third in 2019, but that blow was lessened by the Steelers having an extra 3rd round pick from Oakland, which they picked up in the Antonio Brown trade, and the expectation of a 3rd round pick in 2020 from losing Le’Veon Bell. With their 3rd round picks, the Steelers selected 5’10” Toledo receiver/kick returner Diontae Johnson who they hope helps fill the role left by the departed Antonio Brown and Justin Layne, a cornerback out of Michigan State. In the 4th round the Steelers picked bruising Kentucky running back Benny Snell, in the 5th, Michigan tight end Zach Gentry. Mention Steelers Now and save $10!

With their last pick, the Steelers drafted an offensive lineman, Derwin Gray from Maryland. With all of that behind us, what do you think? Are you happy with the Steelers’ haul?
