Steelers select Samford DT Nicholas Williams in the seventh round

USA TODAY Sports

The Steelers finish their 2013 draft with the selection of defensive tackle Nicholas Williams.

With the selection of Samford defensive tackle Nicholas Williams, the Steelers conclude their draft for the year.

Round Name Pos School
1 Jarvis Jones OLB Georgia
2 Le'Veon Bell RB Michigan State
3 Markus Wheaton WR Oregon State
4 Shamarko Thomas S Syracuse
4 Landry Jones QB Oklahoma
5 Terry Hawthorne CB Illinois
6 Justin Brown WR Oklahoma
6 Vince Williams LB Florida State
7 Nicholas Williams DT Samford

It's unclear how Nicholas Williams (already called him "Kyle" twice) fits into the grand scheme here, but it's not as if the Steelers can't find defensive line talent from late in the draft.

Some versatility among that unit would be a great way to cap off what has to be considered a pretty solid draft, all around. Landry Jones may have been a bit of a surprise, but not a terrible surprise. Top to bottom, highly productive collegiate players who can come in and compete for a spot. Competition makes everyone better and if these guys are competitive, the Steelers are better for it.
