Steelers LIVE 2017 NFL Draft Big Board

It’s been dozens of hours in the making, but I have finally comprised my final Steelers big board. This list includes 100 NFL Draft prospects arranged in order of players I believe would be the best for the Steelers.

Keep in mind that this isn’t a general big board – it’s constructed specifically for the Steelers. Therefore, some players that don’t fill an important position of need, aren’t great scheme fits, or have other concerns (medical, character, off-field)  have been moved down my board.

I will be constantly updating this list throughout the first two days of the NFL Draft. I will cross out the names of each draft prospect as they are selected, so keep this page up when your watching the draft and keep refreshing!
