PITTSBURGH — Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin and general manager Omar Khan broke down the 2024 NFL Draft Class in their annual-pre draft press conference on Monday from UPMC Rooney Sports Complex on the South Side.

Khan and Tomlin broke down the 2024 NFL Draft class, the Steelers’ needs and how the strengths and weaknesses of the draft class might align with the team’s needs.

“I’m also excited about our draft because of just the quality work that we’ve been able to get done in free agency,” Tomlin said. “You know, it’s two means by which we develop our football team for 2024. That goes with existing talent as free agency and the draft. And, we’ve been very active in free agency. And, you know, that makes you really comfortable as we lean in on draft weekend. So that, you know, we’ve addressed a lot of needs and you don’t feel overly thirsty in any particular area. And I just think that that’s a good feel as you as you go into the weekend.”

The Steelers have seven picks in the draft, starting with the No. 20 overall selection in the first round on Sunday, and have three picks in the first 100, with three more coming in the second day of the draft on Friday.
