Steelers like sixth-round pick Travis Feeney's, uh, aggressiveness. "He puts his body in some reckless places and does it without concern," said GM Kevin Colbert about the pass rusher out of Washington. "He's exciting. He flies around."

Steelers focused on secondary

Mel Kiper Jr. singled out the secondary as Pittsburgh's biggest need, and apparently their front office agreed. What grade did Kiper give the Steelers for their efforts in the draft? NFL draft grades (Insider)

Steelers' best pick: Javon Hargrave

A third-round choice, the defensive tackle from South Carolina State has the highest ceiling of any developmental prospect in this class. Hargrave has the first-step quickness and power to push the pocket from the interior. Todd McShay (Insider)

Steelers used the draft to add speed to their secondary, but that's not all. "Playmaking as well," coach Mike Tomlin said. "Speed's just one element of it."

Steelers' draft boosts secondary but lacks sizzle on offense (1:28)

What will Davis do in Pittsburgh?

We're not quite sure yet. Our Todd McShay gave Sean Davis a fourth-round grade, but the Steelers took him in Round 2. Mike Tomlin does have a knack for getting the best out of his talent. Best/riskiest picks of Day 2 (Insider)

Jeremy Fowler ESPN Staff Writer 

Here are the Steelers' picks so far through four rounds: 1. Artie Burns, CB, Miami; 2. Sean Davis, S, Maryland; 3. Javon Hargrave, DT, South Carolina State; 4. Gerald Hawkins, OT, LSU.

Jeremy Fowler ESPN Staff Writer 

With fourth-round pick Jerald Hawkins, the Steelers get a swing tackle who adds depth to an already stout offensive line. He's a multi-year starter at LSU with length. Steelers could have gone offensive playmaker but they are already well-stocked there.
