Looks like the Kahn Artist held mostly true to the Steelers draft process, with just a little bit of trading dust magic sprinkled around to great effect.
My first post https://www.behindthesteelcurtain.com/2023/4/10/23677900/connecting-the-steelers-draft-the-dots-pre-draft-visits-pro-day , and the Update to revise the pre-draft visitor list the Steelers changed in mid-stream (https://www.behindthesteelcurtain.com/2023/4/17/23687066/update-pre-draft-visits-pro-day-dinners-speculation ), tried to show the Steelers best draft predictor has proven to be their Pre-Draft Visitor list.
Including this year, that means fifty-four (54) of their ninety-seven (97) available picks between 2009-2023 have been from that visitor list, including six (6) standalone Pro Day dinners. A total of (55.7%). From that list, the Steelers have also signed fourteen (14) UDFAs and sixteen (16) FAs who were drafted by other teams and re-engaged by the Steelers.
NOTE: The 2021-2022 COVID years are excluded. No face-to-face meetings and very little reporting on private ZOOM interviews.
The 4 pre-draft visitors from 2023 list:
> OT Broderick Jones
> CB Joey Porter Jr
> DL Keeanu Benton
>TE Darnell Washington
What a draft!!!!
