Per Jason LaCanfora, the Steelers were going to trade up to the Jets spot for DeCastro, with the Jets trading back for Coples. Jets backed out after the Seahawks pick.
Very fortunate for the Steelers. That move probably would have cost at least their third round pick, if not an additional pick.

Steelers still got their man, DeCastro, in their original spot. Will be interesting to see how careers of Irvin and Coples pan out.
Jets were gonna take Irvin or Coples in the mid-20s, and Steelers would take DeCastro at 16. Once Seattle took Irvin at 15, Jets pulled out
Interesting note on Bruce Irvin, the 1st 1st rounder to sign. Jets and Steelers had a draft-deal essentially done for NY to drop back ...
