Steelers Projected to Receive 4th and 6th Round 2021 Compensatory Draft Picks

Published

on

Over The Cap is projecting the Pittsburgh Steelers will receive fourth and sixth round compensatory picks in the 2021 NFL Draft.

The Steelers would receive the fourth rounder to compensate for the loss of defensive tackle Javon Hargrave, who signed a three-year, $39 million deal with the Philadelphia Eagles last offseason. Hargrave recorded 4.5 sacks, five tackles-for-loss, eight quarterback hits and made eleven starts.

Pittsburgh would be given the sixth round selection for safety Sean Davis, who signed a one-year, $4 million contract with Washington. Davis was ultimately cut by Washington prior to Week 1, and rejoined the Steelers, primarily contributing on special teams. He had twelve total tackles and a fumble recovery in 2020.

Over The Cap’s Nick Korte does note that the Steelers’ signing of fullback Derek Watt could negate them receiving the sixth round compensation for the initial loss of Davis.

Pittsburgh could also potentially receive another sixth rounder for linebacker Tyler Matakevich, who signed with the Buffalo Bills last offseason, but Korte projects he will fall beyond the league’s 32-compensatory pick maximum.

The Steelers received a compensatory third round selection in the 2020 NFL Draft to make up for the loss of running back Le’Veon Bell.

The Baltimore Ravens are the only other AFC North team projected to receive a compensatory pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, a fifth-rounder to remedy the loss of current Minnesota Vikings defensive lineman Michael Pierce.
