2019 NFL Draft Order:
The second day of the draft was full of trades that had significant impact on the draft order for day three. This is now the full updated order:
Steelers draft picks in each round:
Pittsburgh still hold six selections over the remaining day of the draft after sending their second-round pick this year to the Broncos, using a first-round pick on Devin Bush and third-round picks on Diontae Johnson and Justin Layne.
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 on Day 3?
Many of the prospects the Steelers invited to Pittsburgh to meet with the coaching staff this offseason have already been selected through the first three rounds of the draft, but there are still are number of candidates who could hear their name called by the Steelers on Saturday.
The later rounds are traditionally the time when pre-draft visitors feature most heavily and it should be expected that one or two of the names listed below will be members of the Black and Gold by the end of the day. An option like Notre Dame tight end Alize Mack or one of the many running backs they hosted being among the most likely.
Several of the players the Steelers were reported to have met with at all-star games, the NFL Scouting Combine and their pro days have also already found new homes, but there are still several names available who should could interest them from the list of prospects they were connected with earlier in the offseason.
