Steelers will select 17th in 2013 NFL Draft

Vincent Pugliese-US PRESSWIRE

Future draft pick priorities were caught afloat like Browns in the ceiling fan. As the dust settles, the Steelers know where they fit in the aftermath.

The Pittsburgh Steelers fought hard to earn against the Cleveland Browns the win preventing the first losing campaign in nearly a decade. Their consolation prize for not making the playoffs, is the 17th selction in the 2013 NFL Draft.

After an encouraging victory, salary cap concerns have many investing a lot of hope in the upcoming draft class. The Steelers will see three defensive starters become unrestricted free agents, and four offensive starters from the 2012 season. In addition, both backup quarterbacks, reserve center and multiple key restricted free agents, the Steelers will have plenty of needs to address this offseason.

Rest assured, fans and the press will begin their mock drafts now that the season is officially over, to verify their self-proclaimed scouting expertise. The Steelers coaches and front office will do the same, although their best player available drafting strategy usually blows most speculations to smithereens.

At least everyone can agree on where the next Steelers legend will be selected.
