Potential Nightmare NFL Draft Scenarios for the Steelers in 2024

Apr 19, 2024

The Pittsburgh Steelers enter the 2024 NFL draft in need of offensive line help.


A run on offensive linemen could leave the Steelers without their preferred options at No. 20.

The Worst-Case Scenario

Duke's Graham Barton is the Steelers' primary target, but what if he's already picked?

Preferred Linemen Off the Board

If Barton is gone, the Steelers could take Oregon's Jackson Powers-Johnson at No. 20.

Alternate Option

The Steelers may struggle to find trade partners ahead of No. 20.

Lack of Trade Partners

The Steelers only have two potential trade partners in the NFC West: Seattle and Los Angeles.

Limited Options

The Steelers could trade down from No. 20 to collect more draft picks.

Consider a Trade Down

A trade down could allow the Steelers to collect additional draft picks.
