The Pittsburgh Steelers don’t make their first round selection until 28th in the first round, but they have already made a move. The Steelers have traded wide receiver Martavis Bryant to the Raiders for their 3rd round pick in the draft.
We have traded WR Martavis Bryant to the Raiders for their third round pick (75th overall).— Pittsburgh Steelers (@steelers) April 27, 2018
Bryant, who is one bad drug test away from potentially being given the league’s Josh Gordon treatment, had wanted out of Pittsburgh in 2017 when he took a shot at teammate JuJu Smith-Schuster on social media.
For the Steelers to get an extra 3rd round draft pick for Bryant is a nice consolation, but the Steelers are certainly now in market for a wide receiver. The need had already been there, but it is a huge need now for the black-and-gold in the early rounds of the NFL Draft.
The Steelers will face off against Bryant and the Raiders on Sunday Night Football in the 2018 regular season.
The Steelers picks on Day 1 and Day 2 now look like this:
Round 1: Pick No. 28
Round 2: 60th
Round 3: 79th
Round 3: 92nd
