Pittsburgh Steelers Mock Draft Roundup 7.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2021 NFL draft, we will update our Pittsburgh Steelers Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Pittsburgh Steelers from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

For a more inclusive lists of mock drafts for the Pittsburgh Steelers, check out our 2021 Pittsburgh Steelers Mock Draft Database.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Steelers:

EDSFootball - Donahue (3/23)

24. Jalen Mayfield, OT, Michigan

If the Steelers are going to give it another go with Big Ben at the helm, they are going to have to protect him so look for them to go offensive line here especially given their starting left tackle is now a free agent. Mayfield is another guy who can play outside or move in depending on what the Steelers do in the offseason but he should be able to help either way.

NFL.com - Brooks (3/23)

24. Nick Bolton, LB, Missouri

The heat-seeking missile out of Missouri is the perfect partner for Devin Bush between the tackles.

The Athletic - Beat Writers (3/23)

24. Jalen Mayfield, OT, Michigan

It has been nine years since the Steelers used a first-round pick on an offensive lineman. But the line is in need of an overhaul. Maurkice Pouncey, Matt Feiler and Alejandro Villanueva are gone. The only returning starters from Week 1 of the 2020 season are David DeCastro, coming off the worst year of his career, and Zach Banner, who played just 57 snaps before an ACL injury ended his season. Mayfield could play a big role in this remake. He fits what the Steelers look for in a first-round pick: He's a young (20), experienced (15 college starts) underclassman from a Power 5 program. He might even be able to earn a starting spot in training camp, as Chuks Okorafor was far from solid in place of Banner last year. I was tempted to take Alabama running back Najee Harris here, but the Steelers could find similar talent in the second round. -- Mark Kaboly

ESPN - Kiper (3/22)

24. Teven Jenkins, OT, Oklahoma State

The Steelers have serious salary-cap issues, which means they have had some tough losses in free agency and haven't added any players from other teams, just yet. They did retain wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster, however, and they could still bring back longtime left tackle Alejandro Villanueva, who is unsigned. I'd still address the offensive line here -- tackle Matt Feiler left in free agency too, and center Maurkice Pouncey retired -- and Jenkins is a tough pass-protector and mauler in the run game. I thought hard about Alabama center Landon Dickerson, who could be a Day 1 replacement for Pouncey.

CBS Sports - Wilson (3/22)

24. Samuel Cosmi, OT, Texas

JuJu Smith-Schuster re-upped with the Steelers, which means WR isn't an immediate need, but with Matt Feiler signing with the Chargers, O-line remains a priority. Cosmi is incredibly athletic for his size and he can play either tackle position.

PFF - Renner (3/22)

24. Teven Jenkins, OT, Oklahoma State

We rarely advocate for pigeonholing yourself in a position, but given the Steelers' roster and contract situations, they pretty much have to go offensive line. They're in luck because Jenkins is as mean as they come at tackle -- he earned a 93.6 run-blocking grade last year.
