3. Pittsburgh Steelers

The Pittsburgh Steelers are in a very similar situation as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Steelers have a good roster to build around a quarterback and have a hole at the position with Ben Roethlisberger retiring. Pittsburgh doesn't feel like a likely destination for Aaron Rodgers but the team could absolutely still trade for Jimmy G or could even make smaller moves, such as Jameis Winston or Gardner Minshew.

The Steelers feel more likely to draft a quarterback in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft, though. The Steelers have the 20th overall pick and they are not that far behind the Chargers but competition for quarterbacks could force them to move up three spots.

As already mentioned, the Saints are a wild card and if there is a QB that the Steelers really like at 17 then they might not want to chance it with New Orleans. The Eagles are not going to pick a quarterback, so the Steelers don't have to worry about that.

There is also the potential of there being competition with a team like the Bucs. If so, Tom Telesco could really leverage it to get the Steelers to pay more to outspend Tampa Bay while the Bolts would only be moving down three spots.

Unless there is someone who the Bolts really love and cannot pass up at 17, with this draft class, it might be best to move down some and get better draft capital.
