Previously, we discussed the 12 players worthy of being drafted with the No. 17 pick by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 2013 NFL draft.
Now let’s look at seven more players the Steelers could take in the first round, but only if they trade down from No. 17. These players come with some questions, so if the Steelers draft them, they’ll need to hedge their bets by acquiring more picks in the later rounds and tapping into this draft’s depth.
One anonymous general manager told Mike Freeman of CBSSports.com “There will be 13-15 players picked in the first round that are true first-rounders.”
If the Steelers share that sentiment, or if that GM behind the curtain is Kevin Colbert, then there’s a good chance one of the 19 players examined in these two articles will be drafted by the Steelers in the first round.
The players are listed in the order the Steelers should take them.
Tyler Eifert, TE, Notre Dame: Eifert is the wild card here. Heath Miller might not be ready to start the season af...

The 2013 NFL draft will get underway in New York City Thursday evening, so it is now time for my final Pittsburgh Steelers mock draft of the year.
Mock drafts are never satisfying to me as the odds of getting all of the picks correct really doesn't exist. The process, however, is satisfying, as I get a chance to watch a lot of tape and read a ton of material on several of the...
The 2013 NFL Draft will officially begin tomorrow night. For many football fans this weekend is as good, if not better, than Christmas (or any other special holiday you celebrate). This weekend we will be officially introduced the newest members of the Steelers. These players could turn into starters, stars or hall of famers and the anticipation and hope that goes into this weekend...
After James Harrison was cut by the Steelers the thought was that the Baltimore Ravens would be a good fit for him moving forward. Staying within the same division is good for players because they already know the other teams so going to the Ravens made sense. Harrison’s agent set up a meeting between Harrison and Baltimore, but before that date came the Ravens had signed Elvis...
Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert was a guest Tuesday morning on 105 The X Radio and clarified his reasoning as to why the organization is more open to trading down in the first round of the NFL draft than up. His answer was not surprising, but it no way signified that they are guaranteed to move down on Thursday.
"The first thing that you got to do is to look...
I watched this video some time ago, but perhaps a few of you haven't. Hopefully by now you have read the bio of Georgia outside linebacker Jarvis Jones, who was selected with the 17th pick of the first round of the 2013 NFL draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers. After reading that, you can hear him tell more of his backstory in the sit down interview that he had with Gene Wojciechowski...
Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert said Monday, via Steel City Insider, that the Steelers probably won’t be trading up from the No. 17 pick in the first round of the 2013 NFL draft.
Tell us something we don’t know.
The real question is whether the Steelers will trade down in the first round.
As Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette pointed out, there isn’t...
After parting ways with veteran linebacker James Harrison, the Pittsburgh Steelers drafted Georgia linebacker Jarvis Jones to upgrade their pass rush for 2013 and beyond. Jones had a monster season for the Georgia bulldogs in 2012 after racking up 14.5 sacks. Need NFL Tickets? The post Steelers replace James Harrison by drafting Jarvis Jones appeared first on Pro Football Zone.
PICK: Jarvis Jones, DE/OLB, GeorgiaANALYSIS: Jones has been mocked to the Steelers since the Superbowl or earlier. Pretty much everyone got this pick right. It's also a great pick for Pittsburgh, what a surprise. The Steelers never disappoint in round one. Jones will be a big playmaker for them and will be able to rack up the sack numbers with a strong defense to work with...
One of the Pittsburgh Steelers biggest issues that past few years has been keeping a healthy offensive line. That doesn’t, however, mean that offensive line is one of the biggest needs for the Steelers heading into the 2013 NFL Draft. They have already put multiple early round picks into the offensive line and resigned Ramon Foster to play guard for the team moving forward. The...
The upcoming NFL Draft will impact every team in the league,
but Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert told reporters during
today’s press conference that the future of several veterans will be impacted
by the selections the club makes this weekend. Specifically, who the Steelers
do or do not draft could impact the team’s willingness to sign free agents
Season 3, Episode 96 of The Terrible Podcast is up and co-host David Todd and I discuss quite a few things related to the first day of the 2013 NFL draft that gets underway this evening. We give our thoughts on the first round overall, as well as our thoughts on what the Pittsburgh Steelers may or may not do over the course of the draft. David and I go through the Steelers first...
By Clarence Tunstall Here’s my last ditch effort to lobby for my favorites for this weekend’s draft: At the top of the list is WR Marquise Goodwin. The fastest man in the draft, he opened up Texas’ offense when in the game and unlike talking heads suggest, tracks the ball very well as his game film demonstrates. He’s also a threat to take any play to the house and would make...
With the 17th selection of the 2013 NFL Draft, the Pittsburgh Steelers select Outside Linebacker Jarvis Jones out of Georgia.
The Steelers have numerous needs this season, and the departure of James Harrison left a gaping hole at outside linebacker. One that they may not be quite comfortable leaving in the hands of Jason Worilds.
Following the 2011 and 2012 seasons, Jones was recognized...
Who are these Pittsburgh Steelers? The team that made its name in the NFL with a vicious defense and a head down, run up the middle offense has lost its identity. Once upon a time the Steelers had the attitude towards opposing defenses that “we know that you know what we are going to do, [...]
The Pittsburgh Steelers don't think they'll find an impact player with the 17th pick in this week's draft.
That's fine by general manager Kevin Colbert, who believes it takes any player at least one season to figure out how to play for one of the NFL's marquee franchises.
There are plenty of holes to fill in Pittsburgh, which lost a handful of starters to free...
