Chris Carter of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, hosts the Locked on Steelers podcast, and is joined by Wes Uhler of Steeler Nation Radio.
Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Omar Khan talked about the possibility of trading up in the NFL Draft at NFL Owners' meetings this week. But would that be the right move in a deep draft class? It could be the only way the Steelers get a top flight cornerback or offensive tackle, both important needs. But if they did trade up, what's the best option? Devon Witherspoon? Christian Gonzalez? Peter Skoronski? Paris Johnson? Broderick Jones? And who would be the right trade partner? The Philadelphia Eagles have the tenth overall pick; could Andy Weidl build a bridge with his former team for a trade?
Trading back might also be a good option for the Steelers with how deep this draft class is. But what's apparent is that this year's NFL Draft could be the Steelers' best opportunity to be aggressive on draft day.
Finally, ESPN NFL Draft expert Jordan Reid released his 2.0 full seven round mock draft. He has the Steelers taking Darnell Wright and Brian Branch with their top two picks. Is that the best plan if the Steelers don't make trades?
