New, comments

Experts are all providing their analysis on the team's 2016 NFL Draft class, but what do the fans think of their newest crop of talent in the Steel City?

The whirlwind which has become the NFL Draft is over. The Thursday thru Saturday event saw the Pittsburgh Steelers select seven players in the 7-round process. Take a look at the new crop of Steelers:

Pittsburgh Steelers 2016 NFL Draft Class:

1 (25). Artie Burns, CB, Miami

2 (58). Sean Davis, S, Maryland

3 (89). Javon Hargrave, DT, South Carolina State

4 (123). Jerald Hawkins, OT, LSU

6 (220). Travis Feeney, OLB, Washington

7 (229). DeMarcus Ayers, WR, Houston

7 (246). Tyler Matakevich, LB, Temple

There are obviously decisions to be made at every twist and turn in the draft process. What position to target, as well as the prospect who would be the best fit for your team. It is easy for fans to look at players who were available at that time, and suggest the team could have made a better decision, but then again we aren't the ones interviewing and working out these players who will be the ones to hopefully help the team climb the fabled "stairway to seven".
