Steelers float idea of trading up in NFL Draft
The Pittsburgh Steelers are armed with lots of draft picks and sound ready to use them.
Steelers GM Kevin Colbert said Sunday that the team could either take ten players, or would be happy to entertain trading up using those picks as ammo.
Steelers are open for draft-day business. "When you have 10, you have more ammunition to either take 10 players or use ammunition to trade up," general manager Kevin Colbert said from the NFL owners meetings.

The notion of trading up has to be a tempting one from Pittsburgh’s perspective. Right now, they’re not even the betting favorites in their own division after the departure of Antonio Brown coupled with a very active offseason from the Cleveland Browns. Adding an impact player in the draft could help them change the narrative and provide a long-term option in an organization that has lost a lot of its key young talent, especially on offense.
