The 2023 NFL Draft is officially in the books, and the Pittsburgh Steelers have several new faces within the organization. Take a look at all of the news players that the Steelers brought in: 

And according to analyst Mel Kiper, their overall haul was good enough to earn them a grade of B+. Take a look at his reasoning below: 

"With three picks in the top 50, the Steelers entered the draft with a real chance to come away with multiple new rookie starters. They need help on both sides of the ball. And I'm a fan of what they did on the first two days of the draft. They traded a fourth-round pick to move up three spots in Round 1 to grab Broderick Jones (14), who will start at one of the tackle spots. He had an elite 2022 season."

"Pittsburgh had just three picks in the last four rounds, with Nick Herbig (132) the most notable. He is my No. 7 inside linebacker. The light Day 3 keeps this class under an A -- teams that have more picks obviously have greater chances to find those diamonds in the rough -- but there are some instant-impact players here."
