After the Pittsburgh Steelers embarrassing 36-10 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, it dropped the Steelers down to the No. 11 seed and moved them up to the No. 15 overall pick in the 2022 NFL draft.
Pittsburgh currently has multiple needs that would warrant first-round consideration including quarterback, offensive line and defensive line.
The No. 15 overall pick hasn’t been great in recent years for any team. However, the Steelers can make a case for having the best player selected with the No. 15 overall pick in the last 10 drafts. Back in 2014, the Steelers selected Ohio State University linebacker Ryan Shazier with that very pick.
The Steelers have only selected higher than the No. 15 pick under head coach Mike Tomlin. The team selected inside linebacker Devin Bush in 2019 after trading up to the 10th pick overall.
