Entering the 2017 NFL Draft, the Pittsburgh Steelers had a number of draft needs which they needed to address. Outside linebacker, cornerback, safety, defensive line, running back, wide receiver and even quarterback were positions of need to help the black and gold get to the next level in 2017. There have been numerous thoughts and debates regarding what the team will do with the 30th overall draft pick, and the debate is finally over.

The Steelers have selected wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster in the second round of the draft.

Smith Schuster played his college football at USC, where Steelers Hall of Fame receiver Lynn Swann is now the Athletic Director. There is a good chance Swann was able to give the Steelers a legitimate insider look at the tall and feisty receiver who will compete with Sammie Coates and company for a spot on the team’s wide receiver depth chart.

The Pittsburgh Steelers' draft needs in the remaining rounds of the draft now would be considered: defensive back, running back and maybe even quarterback, the foremost mentioned of the two being the primary concerned.

Stay tuned to BTSC for further news, updates and information regarding not just the team’s first round pick, but all 8 picks throughout the 7-round selection process.
