They have everyone back from last year, which definitely helps.READ MORE: Pennsylvania Ended Extended Jobless Benefits, Unemployment Rate Falls Below 5%
But we know the Steelers like to go with the best available player on their board, so if there is a guy they really like in the mid-to-late rounds, KDKA’s Rich Walsh would never count out the Steelers drafting another one.

Purdue’s Rondale Moore is only 5-foot-9 but has the speed to run past anyone, as he clocks a sub-4.3-second 40-yard dash. He also has the strength to run over defenders.
Another guy the Steelers are high on and could be a sleeper pick in the mid-to-late rounds is Auburn’s Anthony Schwartz. He is even faster than Moore and might be the fastest player in this year’s draft.MORE NEWS: 'A Solemn Day For A Solemn Ride': Local Police Honor Fallen Officers With Memorial Ride
