Our predictions for the Pittsburgh Steelers 2013 draft picks are listed below. Based on team needs and season statistics relative to the rest of the NFL, we expect that the Pittsburgh Steelers use the draft to stay strong for the 2013-2014 NFL schedule. They will be looking for future defensive stars to support aging vets. Draft projections will change throughout the season based on top draft eligible NCAA players performances in the 2012 college football season, 2013 NFL combine performances and Pittsburgh Steelers injuries during the 2012-2013 season.
How We Predict 2013 Draft Order2013-2014 NFL season schedule release date
Draft order is created by the previous year's standing in order of worst performer to best. Trades and contracts sometimes see picks interchanged among teams. With the 2012-2013 NFL season incomplete, how can we have a reasonable 7 round draft order and draft pick prediction? While we can't say for sure where we will see key injuries, breakout seasons and trades, we have developed a tremedously successful technique for nailing the mock draft using Vegas odds, statistical trends, player injuries and team needs.
