Steeler Nation, we are almost there! Christmas in Spring is right around the corner. The draft scenarios, the simulator mock drafts and the discussions of who the Pittsburgh Steelers should select in the 2021 NFL Draft will all come to an end in less than a week.

For some, it can’t end soon enough, and for a few, myself included, the search continues into the 2022 prospect watch list. For those interested, take a look at Kayvon Thibodeaux Edge Rusher Oregon Ducks. He’s sure to make it on the “we won’t get him” list but he is fun too watch and at times unblockable. For those that aren’t interested, you should have looked away.

Back to why we are here, I wanted to share my prediction on who I think the Steelers will select in each round. Feel free to add your prediction in the comment section. This isn’t a contest, although it would be a great idea for a prize give away from the BTSC Staff for the 2022 draft. Just a thought!

This is based off of interest shown to prospects, and an overall gut feeling. I think Mike Tomlin would appreciate that, and because of CORAL and the bogged down comment section, I did not have the patience to wish all the best to our newly extended coach. Bring us home Super Bowl No. 7!

I also wanted to give a shout out to the crew that put together this years version of the BTSC Big Board. Nice work guys, much appreciated! Also a THANK YOU to Jeff Hartman who went out of his element too provide this site with some solid work with the Draft Profiles...now on to the prediction.


Round 1 Pick 24: Travis Etienne, RB Clemson

Round 2 Pick 55: Nick Bolton, ILB Missouri

Round 3 Pick 87: Spencer K. Brown, OT Northern Iowa

Round 4 Pick 128: Quincey Roche, EDGE Miami

Round 4 Pick 140: Robert Rochell, CB Central Arkansas

Round 6 Pick 216: Jamie Newman, QB Georgia

Round 7 Pick 245: John Bates, TE Boise State

Round 7 Pick 254: Brandon Kennedy, C Tennessee


Don’t forget to make your predictions in the comment section, and, as always...

Go Steelers!
