The NFL regular season is just a week away and so we decided before the chaos of the season kicks in, we would do a 2022 NFL draft simulation for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Once again we used the Pro Football Network simulator and we once again worked a couple of trades to help the Steelers land some extra picks.
PFN had the Steelers picking No. 14 overall and we first traded down to No. 19 with the Philadelphia Eagles, netting the No. 52 pick in the process. Then when the Steelers went on the clock at No. 19, the Houston Texans made an offer to give Pittsburgh the No. 33, No. 65 and a 2023 fourth-round pick and we took it.
Here is how the picks shook out in the first three rounds.
