Now that the Steelers have added two more new players from the college ranks in the form of Pat Freiermuth and Kendrick Green. I recognize that my picks of C Creed Humphrey and OT Jackson Carman were way off. But that’s fine, I will try again. With welcoming a new tight end and center, the mock has been updated again to reflect the hot pickin’ action of Day 2. Hopefully, I will get one pick correct.
Here’s what we got...enjoy.
Round 4, Pick 128
ILB Jabril Cox - LSU
The three-time National Champ at North Dakota State transferred to LSU and established himself as a thumper with a great blend of size and speed. There’s definite three-down potential when it comes to Cox and he would be a great successor to Vince Williams.
Round 4, Pick 140
CB Trill Williams - Syracuse
The Syracuse product is a physical corner with excellent size and speed. Williams is tough in coverage and is equally strong against the run. The 6’2” Trill could help fill voids left by Mike Hilton and Steven Nelson in the secondary.
Round 6, Pick 216
OT Alaric Jackson - Iowa
At nearly 6’6“ and 318 lbs., Jackson is a long-tenured, physical specimen at the offensive lineman factory that is Iowa. Alaric does a pretty good job of keeping defenders in front of him. Should he develop a nasty streak, Alaric Jackson could eventually start at LT for the Steelers.
Round 7, Pick 245
EDGE Chris Rumph - Duke
Rumph, one of the most solid pass rushers in the history of the Duke football program is a situational pass rusher that can add depth to the Steelers on the EDGE.
Round 7, Pick 254
DT Tedarrell Slaton - Florida
Impressive size at 360 lbs., Slaton gets great leverage and strength in the trenches and could be a developmental NT for the Steelers.
