After the excitement of a first-round trade that saw the Pittsburgh Steelers move up 10 place select Devin Bush, fans will be waiting a bit longer to see the team’s first pick on day two after trading their second-round selection to the Denver Broncos on Thursday night.
That being said, given the array of talent still available heading into round two, the Steelers may yet decided to make another trade to get back into the second-round, with more than enough draft capital on day three of the draft to be able to make that happen.

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.
Who will the Steelers draft?
With the selection of an inside linebacker in round one, it would be safe to say that we can take that position off the board for rounds two and three. And looking at the list of names the Steelers have met with this offseason, there are one or two players we should cross off the list too after they found new homes in the first-round.
