STRIP DISTRICT (KDKA) –- Several Steelers showed up at the opening of a new restaurant in town.

Savoy, owned by former Steeler Chuck Sanders, is on Penn Avenue in the Strip District.

While the restaurant was the focus of the night, some of the players were dishing about the draft and the NFL labor situation.

The Steelers are slated to pick 31st.

“I think we all know that we need to improve our secondary, so hopefully they can find some people that can help in the secondary,” Former Steeler Mel Blount said.

The Steelers organization has said it would make draft picks based on the team as it currently stands.

“Maurkice did a great job for us and you know if we draft his brother, I mean, we’re expecting the same thing from him,” Steelers safety Ryan Mundy said. “But any guy we bring in I feel like would be a great contributor to our team.”

Just a few hours before the draft, the NFL said players can resume workouts at team facilities, meet with coaches and go over playbooks starting Friday morning.

“It’s good to get a little break, but we’re ready to play some football and usually we don’t work out around the draft anyway, so to go in tomorrow would kind of be kind of pushing it but next week when everything kind of smoothes over with the draft being over and the NFL having time to set the rules, we’ll be ready to go to work,” Steelers offensive lineman Trai Essex said.

Fans will get to meet the Steelers first-round draft pick at the Fan Blitz on Saturday.
