Pittsburgh Steelers: 7-Round Mock Draft

Pittsburgh Steelers

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.

I used the Mock Draft simulator from NFL Mock Draft Database. For this simulation, I used the consensus big board accumulated by NFL MDD, with the realistic draft mode setting.

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

Doubs is one of the best go-route runners in this class. He doesn’t have that WOW athleticism. Doubs can stretch the field and take the pressure off of Chase Claypool and Diontae Johnson.

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
