Best Of The Rest

Steeler nation, we are heading into the third and final day of the NFL Draft. Three rounds have already passed and a total of 97 selections have been made. Rounds 4-7 will start at 12:00 P.M. eastern today. With four rounds remaining, there is still plenty of talent on the board. It is were champions are made.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have found plenty of talent late in the NFL Draft. The most recent being wide receiver Antonio Brown from Central Michigan. Brown was a sixth round pick, 197th overall. We can not forget some of the others that have been selected past the first three rounds like: Ike Taylor (4th, 125 overall), Aaron Smith (4th, 109 overall), Greg Lloyd (6th, 150 overall), Mike Webster (5th, 125), Ernie Holmes (8th, 203), Willie Parker (undrafted, and James Harrison (undrafted).

Who are the best available today? Well I will take you through who the Steelers may consider in the last day of the NFL Draft. The Steelers have five picks today from rounds 4-7 (Two picks in 6th). Remember, after the draft is over, the undrafted rookie free agency period begins. Allowing teams to make calls to sign players who were not selected and give them a contract to be on a team.
