  • 2016 NFL Draft: Pittsburgh Steelers Select OT Jerald Hawkins in 4th Round

    The Pittsburgh Steelers have selected offensive tackle Jerald Hawkins with the 123rd pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. Hawkins played at LSU and is a true offensive tackle who can play both the left and right side.

    Hawkins was a 37 game starter in his college career. He will end up being the team’s swing tackle and could be the starter on offense if he puts in the necessary work.

    He is a 6’6? 305 athlete that is quite the selection in the 4th round. He will fit the Steelers’ offense quite well. Hawkins, Villanueva and Ryan Harris will all be competing for the starting role at left tackle. He probably won’t be the starter but will be a more consistent swing tackle than former second-round pick Mike Adams.

    Stats: 

    The Bengals selected Andrew Billings just two spots ahead of Pittsburgh’s pick. He was still on the board after reports surfaced that he had problems with his knee. The Steelers probably wouldn’t have selected him anyway but who knows. Hawkins has a lot of promise and could be a talented offensive tackle in the NFL. He is very raw but his size could end up winning him the starting role someday.

     
  • 2016 NFL Draft: Pittsburgh Steelers Select DT Javon Hargrave in 3rd Round

    The Pittsburgh Steelers have selected defensive tackle Javon Hargrave with the 89th pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. Hargrave played at South Carolina State and had an INCREDIBLE 2015 season.

    Hargrave recorded 13.5 sacks in 2015 and is a very talented and physical athlete. He could end up being the main starter on defense if former sixth-round pick Dan McCullers is not producing well.

    He has phenomenal speed for a 300 pound athlete and is quite powerful. He will fit the Steelers’ defensive scheme quite well. Hargrave and McCullers will be competing for the starting role.

    Stats: 

    Even though Andrew Billings was still on the board, reports surfaced that he had problems with his knee. Hargrave has a lot of promise and could be a talented defensive tackle in the NFL. He is very raw but his versatility is a key attribute to watch in 2016.

     
  • 2016 NFL Draft: Pittsburgh Steelers Select Safety Sean Davis in 2nd Round

    The Pittsburgh Steelers have selected safety Sean Davis with the 58th pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. Davis played at the University of Maryland and had a stellar 2015 campaign.

    Davis recorded three interceptions in 2015 and is a true physical athlete. He can play cornerback and safety. The Steelers are going to use him at the strong safety position according to management.

    He has an incredible vertical jump for his size, and will fit the Steelers’ defensive scheme quite well. He and Robert Golden will be competing for the starting role.

    Stats: 


    Even though he was projected as a late second-round, early third-round pick, Davis has a lot of promise and could be a talented safety in the NFL. He is very raw but his versatility is a key attribute to watch in 2016.
