Pittsburgh Steelers Draft Picks 2023


The Pittsburgh Steelers had a 9-8 record during the 2022 season and just missed the playoffs. General manager Omar Khan now turns his focus to the 2023 NFL Draft as the franchise looks to get back into the playoffs.

Here’s what you need to know about the Pittsburgh Steelers draft picks for 2023.

The Steelers don’t have a fifth or sixth-round pick due to trades, but they do have three picks inside the top 50 in the 2023 NFL Draft. They have an additional second-round pick thanks to a trade with the Chicago Bears that involved Chase Claypool. That pick will be the first of the second round at No. 32 overall.

Steelers Mock Drafts and Team Needs

The Steelers have needs on both the offensive and defensive sides of the ball. So what will they do in the first round to help head coach Mike Tomlin get this team back into the playoffs?

Several mock drafts have the Steelers using their first-round pick on a defensive back. This is due to the loss of Cam Sutton in free agency. Potential options are CB Joey Porter Jr. out of Penn State or Devon Witherspoon out of Illinois. The team could also go the offensive tackle route and take Broderick Jones from Georgia to protect young quarterback Kenny Pickett.

The Steelers also might look to add a player to the roster on the defensive front seven to support starter T.J. Watt, who missed some time last season due to injury.
