Typically I am highly critical of these draft simulations but it’s hard to argue against this one. Brian Branch, Anton Harrison and Siaki Ika are year-one contributors and Tyrique Stevenson is a great developmental cornerback. Can’t fault the sim for giving the Steelers Ricky Stromberg when Pittsburgh just signed Isaac Seumalo the night before. Overall there isn’t a bad pick in this group and it would be a draft Pittsburgh could really build from.
