2018 Pittsburgh Steelers Mock Draft Addresses All Needs

If math is an exact science, mock drafts represent the ultimate inexact science. Half wish-list and all speculation, mock drafts generate a ton of interest in the months leading up to the real thing.

Pittsburgh Steelers Should Have Marcus Martin On Their Radar

The Pittsburgh Steelers have had plenty of success over the years with finding defensive talent from small schools. From Donnie Shell and Jack Lambert to Greg Lloyd and Javon Hargrave, they unearthed gems that most teams overlooked. The Steelers believe they found promising talent at outside linebacker last year with Keion Adams from Western Michigan. This year’s small school talent pool includes someone from the Steelers own backyard. West Mifflin High School graduate Marcus Martin, a defensive end from Slippery Rock University, should be on the Steelers radar. Why? Because he capped off an amazing college career with a historic senior season. Martin’s senior year proved he belongs...
