NCAA Football: Maryland at Wisconsin Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Entering the 2019 NFL Draft, the Pittsburgh Steelers had a number of draft needs which they needed to address. After the first two days of selections, there were still positions of need to help the black-and-gold get to the next level in 2019. There have been numerous thoughts and debates regarding what the team will do on Day 3 of the NFL Draft.

When the dust settled, the Steelers have selected offensive guard Derwin Gray from Maryland, with their seventh round pick of the draft.

For those who may not know much about Sutton as a player, this is his overall breakdown of his game, per his NFL Draft Profile:

Gray is another Washington, D.C. native that Maryland convinced to stick around the area for college. He spent the 2013 season at Fork Union Military Academy before joining the Terrapins for a redshirt season. Gray played in two games as a reserve in 2015 and then earned starts in three of 13 games at left tackle his sophomore season. Big Ten coaches named him honorable mention all-conference as a 12-game starter at left tackle in 2017, and he was named his own team’s top offensive lineman that season. He was an honorable mention All-Big Ten selection in 2018, starting 10 games at left tackle for the Terps.
