The Pittsburgh Steelers will have a new primary starting quarterback in 2022 for the first time since 2004. Ben Roethlisberger has hung up his cleats and now Mitchell Trubisky is slated to take over. This will also be the last draft for longtime GM Kevin Colbert.
The Steelers currently have seven picks in the 2022 NFL Draft.
Let’s see how it plays out.
PITTSBURGH STEELERS: 7-ROUND MOCK DRAFT
1-20: Kenny Pickett, QB, Pittsburgh
The Steelers can’t really believe that Trubisky can be a competent starting quarterback. They don’t have to go far to find their heir apparent. Pickett played his collegiate ball in the same stadium as the Steelers. He has a decent arm, is accurate, and has mobility. Pickett would enter the NFL having the smallest hands of any quarterback in the league. Make of that what you will.
2-52: Nicholas Petit-Frere, OT, Ohio State
Petit-Frere has been on a roller coaster ride with his draft stock. NPF was the left tackle at Ohio State and drafting him would allow Pittsburgh to move Dan Moore inside potentially.
3-84: Romeo Doubs, WR, Nevada
THE REST OF THE DRAFT
4-138: Joshua Williams, CB, Fayetteville State
6-208: Dawson Deaton, C, Texas Tech
7-225: James Mitchell, TE, Virginia Tech
7-241: Tariq Carpenter, LB, Georgia Tech
