2022 NFL Draft

Steelers Take Northern Iowa OL Trevor Penning in Latest CBS Mock Draft



CBS Sports’ Josh Edwards has unveiled his latest mock draft, and believes the Pittsburgh Steelers will bolster their offensive line with their first rounder.

With the 20th-overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, Edwards projects the Steelers to select Northern Iowa offensive tackle Trevor Penning.

“I think Pittsburgh has a few interior players that are worth developing. I am more concerned with the offense tackle position,” Edwards writes. “Najee Harris had to feel as though he was slamming his head against a brick wall countless times this season, as he found few clear run lanes.”

A three-year starter for Northern Iowa, Penning was a finalist for the Walter Payton Award this past season, which is awarded annually to the most outstanding offensive player at the FCS level. He was also a unanimous All-American.

Penning is CBS Sports’ eight-ranked offensive lineman and their 43rd prospect overall.
