Breaking down the picks in latest Steelers 7-round mock draft

Pittsburgh Steelers beat writer Ray Fittapaldo has put out a full seven-round mock draft after the Senior Bowl so let’s take a look at the picks and see if there’s anything we would do differently. To compare, you can see our latest mock draft here.

First round - C Jackson Powers-Johnson, Oregon

We are all speaking this pick into existence for the Steelers. JPJ is far and away the top center in the draft and a perfect fit for the Steelers.

Second round - DL Darius Robinson, Missouri

I love Robinson as a prospect for the Steelers 3-4 but I hate to think they would need to spend a second-round on the position.

Third round - CB Mike Sainristil, Michigan

Fourth round - WR Javon Baker, UCF

This feels like a super safe pick for the Steelers but athletically nothing really stands out with Baker.

Fourth round - ILB Jaylan Ford, Texas

Sixth round- P Tory Taylor , Iowa

If it means Pressley Harvin III is out, I have no qualms about using a draft pick on the top punter in the class. I doubt Taylor will last this long.

Seventh round - OT Roger Rosengarten, Washington

A decent developmental prospect who needs to bulk up and get stronger. Lots of late-round options for the Steelers.
