In the early morning hours Sunday the Pittsburgh Steelers and Oakland Raiders came to terms on a deal which will send Antonio Brown to the Raiders for 3rd and 5th round picks in the upcoming 2019 NFL Draft.
Hardly the haul many expected for the All-Pro wide receiver.
However, even though everyone was suggesting a first round pick, having two more draft picks can certainly be valuable in terms of trade stock during the three day process. For instance, if the Steelers wanted to move up in the first round from their current No. 20 position, they certainly could package some of the new picks they’ve recently received to help sweeten a deal to do so.
I just the past 72 hours the Steelers have gained a 6th round pick for offensive tackle Marcust Gilbert, and now a 3rd and 5th for Antonio Brown. This leaves the Steelers will 10 total draft picks, so far, leading up to the big event.
