It’s finally here. The 2019 NFL Draft. Buckle up, Steelers’ Nation.
We’re in for a wild next three days. Hopefully you feel as informed and prepared as ever. I know we’ve thrown a ton of information at you these last couple months so bookmark this page because we’re putting everything you need to know about the draft in this post. Be the dude who actually knows what he’s talking about at the water cooler.
Where To Watch
The basic info. Round One begins tonight at 8 PM/ET. NFL Network, ESPN, and ABC will all be airing the event. Rounds 2 and 3 take place Friday at 7 PM/ET with Saturday taking us through Day Three, kicking off at noon.
Check out the complete, seven round draft order via CBS at the link here. Arizona will be on the clock at #1, San Francisco #2, the Jets #3, Oakland #4, and Tampa Bay #5.
For those wishing Pittsburgh drafts Devin Bush, the two picks to watch are Denver at #10 and Cincinnati at #11.
The Steelers Basics
Pittsburgh has ten picks in this draft. They are:
#20 – First Round
#52 – Second Round
#66 – Third Round
#83 – Third Round
#122 – Fourth Round
#141 – Fifth Round
#175 – Sixth Round
#192 – Sixth Round
#207 – Sixth Round
#219 – Seventh Round
Joe Greene will announce the team’s pick at #20. Santonio Holmes will do the same for the second round and Brett Keisel the third. Keep in mind the Steelers have only ever drafted ten players once under Kevin Colbert – 2010.
Here’s the list of 202 scouting reports we wrote since we began the draft process. Tip of the cap to all the Depot writers who contributed.
If you don’t want to search, you can check out the most common name mocked to the Steelers, Temple CB Rock Ya-Sin, and his profile at the link here.
The Pre-Draft Process
Kevin Colbert and Mike Tomlin were at the following pro days:
Clemson: Colbert & Tomlin
Michigan: Colbert & Tomlin
Michigan St: Colbert
Notre Dame: Colbert
West Virginia: Colbert & Tomlin
LSU: Colbert & Tomlin
Texas A&M: Colbert
At least one of those two have attended the Pro Day workout of the Steelers first round pick for the last nine years. If your first round pick didn’t qualify there, they better have come in for a pre-draft visit.
