Charting BTSC's Draft Grades for the Pittsburgh Steelers in Rounds 1-4

New, comments

A shorthand guide to the BTSC Big Board grades for Steeler prospects in the first four rounds of the 2016 NFL draft (and perfect for use on the simulators!)

Jerry Lai-USA TODAY Sports

It's generally agreed that the Steelers will focus the beginning of their draft on Corners, Safeties, Defensive Tackles, and Defensive Ends. While we're at it we might as well set up a fourth category for Other. Here is a comparative look at the players BTSC considers to be viable possibilities for the Steeler picks in any of the first four rounds. It should be a useful guide for draft day. [And it's the perfect set of notes if you want to test our Board on one of the simulators!]
