Steelers Interested In Pursuing Hosting NFL Draft ‘At The Appropriate Time’ – But When?

It was just over six years ago, during my first month with Steelers Depot, during which Pittsburgh Steelers owner Art Rooney II expressed his interest in perhaps helping the city of Pittsburgh host the NFL Draft at some point in the future.

“Sure, I’d like to see the draft move around (to other cities), and I would love to see it come to Pittsburgh some time”, he told the team’s website in an article no longer accessible. “It’s a great event and attracts tremendous fan interest. It would be a fun event for Pittsburgh to host, and I think our city could do a great job with it”.
