NFL Draft 2014: Steelers GM thinks everyone wants to trade down


The NFL Draft was pushed back to May in 2014, which means there is more time than ever for teams around the league to consider their options and draft strategy. From looking through potential options with your draft selections to discussing trade options to better position your team to select their targets, it appears that there is more discussion than ever about how the draft will play out.

As far as Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert is concerned, most of the teams will be wanting to trade down in this year’s draft.

“It makes more sense in this draft than trading up,” Colbert said of trading down, via Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “I’m sure everyone shares the same thought.”

With a handful of teams outside of the top five who could be high on the elite players in the draft class, we may get to see plenty of movement within the first ten picks.

    That’s about the only thing he has said or done lately that makes sense… that is why the Steelers will get stuck at 15 and pick a player that should go at like 26…
