Steelers Rumors: Steelers to trade down, secure extra picks in draft?

In Steelers rumors today, there is a distinct possibility that the Pittsburgh Steelers could trade down from the #15 spot in May's NFL Draft, in order to address needs throughout the roster.

So says's Scott Brown in a recent mailbag:

"If there is a significant drop-off after the Steelers' top-rated players at cornerback and wide receiver and both of those players (Darqueze Dennard and Justin Gilbert) are gone before No. 15 then they would look at other options, including trading down. The problem with trying to trade down is a lot of other teams may try to do it since this draft would be a good one in which to collect extra picks."

The Pittsburgh Steelers have been heavily connected to former Michigan State cornerback Darqueze Dennard, along with potential interest in former Pittsburgh defensive tackle Aaron Donald.

However, if the Steelers can swing something to get extra picks in one of the most loaded NFL Drafts in years, there is a good chance they could if their desired list of names is snatched up by other teams.
