Steelers Looking To Trade Into Top Ten?


According to Adam Schefter, the Steelers are mulling a potential trade up in the first round. 

Pittsburgh has had a gaping hole at linebacker since the loss of rangy LB Ryan Shazier and could be considering a move up for Michigan LB Devin Bush.

The Steelers might need to move into the top ten picks to acquire Bush, however. 

NFL Media’s Daniel Jeremiah previously identified Bush as a potential target for multiple teams if he slips a little bit. 

The Steelers have 10 draft picks and have openly discussed the prospect of moving up in the draft the past few weeks. Steelers GM Kevin Colbert said talks would begin to heat up closer to the draft. 

“Our scouts, the pro guys, will start making their calls starting today to visit with teams,” he said. “We talk about it informally throughout the spring, but you never really get firm answers because we don’t know what we would be trading up for and teams don’t know what they’d be trading away from. Until you really get closer – you might have some idea that this team is interested in coming up and this team is interested in going down – until you actually get on the clock, those things will not happen in any great detail.”
