NFL: NFL Draft Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Day 1 of the 2019 NFL Draft is in the books, but Day 2 can be even more exciting! No more mock drafts. No more breakdowns. No more educated guesses. No more scenarios.

No, it is time to sit back and see who the Pittsburgh Steelers select with their 2nd and two 3rd round picks in the 2019 NFL Draft. Will it be a linebacker, or will they go with a cornerback? Could they surprise everyone and make a trade, or decide to take a cornerback?

If you need information on the upcoming event, here is some solid stuff for you below:

Round 2-3:

Each team is allowed seven minutes to make their selection in round 2 and just five minutes for their pick in round 3.

Former Pittsburgh wide receiver Santonio Holmes was meant to be announcing the Steelers second-round draft pick, while former defensive end Brett Keisel will announce their third-round selection.

2019 NFL Draft Order:

Following a number of trades on day one of the draft, this is the revised order heading into day two.

Steelers draft picks in each round:

Pittsburgh now holds 8 selections over the remaining two days of the draft after sending their second-round pick this year to the Broncos and using their first-round pick on Bush. They received third and fifth round picks from the Raiders for Antonio Brown and a sixth-round pick from the Cardinals for Marcus Gilbert earlier in the offseason. The Steelers also traded their seventh round selection to the Cleveland Browns as part of a deal for Sammie Coates that saw them receive a sixth round draft pick in 2018.

Their seventh round selection this year comes from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as part of the trade for J.J. Wilcox in 2017. The Steelers extra sixth-round pick (No.175 overall) comes as part of the trade for Ryan Switzer in 2018 that saw them send their 2019 fifth-round pick to Oakland in return. That selection has since been traded by the Raiders to the Buffalo Bills.
