Since Kevin Colbert became the Pittsburgh Steelers’ director of player personnel in 2000, they have not missed on a first-round draft pick, although it’s too early to tell on Cameron Heyward and David DeCastro. The 2013 NFL draft is no time for the Steelers to snap that first-round streak. Coming off an 8-8 season, the 2013 draft is a pivotal one for the franchise. As frustrating as it’s been to see the Steelers miss the playoffs every third year since 2001, these non-playoff interludes have provided them with top-20 draft picks that they have put to good use. A case can be made for the Steelers to trade out of their No. 17 pick this year for a choice later in the first round and a couple of extra picks later in the draft. The more picks they have, the better their chances of addressing all their needs, which include outside linebacker, running back and wide receiver. The Steelers might not be so quick to peddle that No. 17 pick, however. As good as their first-round track record ha...

  • I have no idea what the Steelers will do in the first round. I would like them to go defense in the first round. Either Kenny Vaccaro or Alec Ogletree.

Then again, I would not be surprised if the Steelers trade down.

Report: Steelers really wanted Brian Hoyer

According to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the Steelers really wanted to sign quarterback Brian Hoyer, but the Cardinals placed a second round tender on him, since he was a restricted free agent.
