Steelers Sign All Draft Picks Except Heyward and Brown

According to reports the Pittsburgh Steelers have signed all their draft picks with the exception of:

1st Round Pick: Cameron Heyward, DE, Ohio State University

3rd Round Pick: Curtis Brown, CB, University of Texas

The following other draft picks have already been signed:

Marcus Gilbert, Tackle, University of Florida

Cortez Allen, CB, The Citadel

and Chris Carter, Keith Williams and Baron Batch.

Report: Steelers – Redskins had trade planned

According to reports, the Pittsburgh Steelers and Washington Redskins had a 1st round trade planned.  The Steelers were interested in trading to the #16 pick fr0m pick #31.  It is not yet known who the Steelers were targeting but the trade fell through when their targeted player was no longer available.

Per Jim Wexell of Steel City Insider, Dan Snyder, appearing on Sirius Radio this past week, said that Washington and Pittsburgh had a deal in place for the No. 16 overall pick, but "the player was gone."

Earlier in the first round Dan Snyder and the Redskins traded from the #10 pick to the #16 pick to allow for the Jacksonville Jaguars to draft Blain Gabbert.  With that being said, it's likely the Steelers targeted player was drafted between picks #11 and #15.  The most likely pick was the #15 pick when the Miami Dolphins drafted Mike Pouncey from the Florida Gators.  However, it could have been JJ Watt.

It was well documented before the draft that the Steelers were interested in drafting Maurkice Pouncey's twin brother Mike.  What were the trade details?  And would the Steelers draft up that high for a guard?  Those questions are still unknown.  There is more details to follow on this story...

Steelers Draft Maurkice Pouncey with 18th Pick

The Pittsburgh Steelers selected Maurkice Pouncey, the Florida Gator center with their 18th overall pick.

Pouncey at 20 years old, can anchor the Steelers interior line for years.  Pouncey is very athletic, has quick feet and can pull which will remind Steelers fans of the Hall of Fame bound, Dermontti Dawson.
