The third day of the NFL draft brought even more Pittsburgh Steelers for Steeler Nation to cheer for. The list includes a punishing rusher, a couple of sack masters and a 6’8” TE. But with that, it serves up more players to serve as instant rivals to boo. Here’s who each team welcomed to oppose Pittsburgh as new members of the AFC North.

Baltimore Ravens

GM Eric DeCosta continued to upgrade the offense in a big way. The Ravens got even speedier with Justice Hill and added, not just a backup QB, but a possible offensive weapon in Penn State’s Trace McSorley. All in all, it was a pretty solid first draft for DeCosta. Ravens have the potential to be epic on offense, but their defense was pretty close to being ignored.

Round 4 Pick 113

RB Justice Hill - Oklahoma State

Round 4 Pick 123

OL Ben Powers - Oklahoma

Round 4 Pick 127

CB Iman Marshall - USC

Round 5 Pick 160

DL Daylon Mack - Texas A&M

Round 6 Pick 197

QB Trace McSorley - Penn State


Cleveland Browns

After so many years of appropriately being labeled so, the Browns are working hard to no longer be mistakes by the lake. After no First Round selections, GM Phillip Dorsey looked to follow up a solid Day 2 by bolstering their defense. The Browns picked up Mack Wilson, who could be a find in Round 5 and added to an already strong secondary.

Round 4 Pick 119

S Sheldrick Redwine - Miami, Fla

Round 5 Pick 155

ILB Mack Wilson - Alabama

Round 5 Pick 170

K Austin Seibert - Oklahoma

Round 6 Pick 189

OL Drew Forbes - Southeast Missouri State

Round 7 Pick 221

CB Donnie Lewis Jr. - Tulane


Cincinnati Bengals

Most notably, the Bengals picked up depth at QB and OL with Michael Jordan. It was kind of an underwhelming draft up top for Cincy, but they added decent depth on Day Three.o

Round 4 Pick 104

QB Ryan Finley - North Carolina State

Round 4 Pick 125

DL Renell Wren - Arizona State

Round 4 Pick 136

OL Michael Jordan - Ohio State

Round 6 Pick 182

RB Trayveon Williams - Texas A&M

Round 6 Pick 210

LB Deshaun Davis - Auburn

Round 6 Pick 211

RB Rodney Anderson- Oklahoma

Round 7 Pick 223

CB Jordan Brown - San Diego State


How many of the above will haunt the dreams of Steeler Nation and who? That question will take a bit to be answered. But to quote Timbuk3 from 1986, “The Future’s So Bright, I Gotta Wear Shades”.
