On Friday, the NFL released the full order of the 2021 NFL Draft, which includes all of the compensatory picks.


The Steelers have a fourth-round compensatory pick (140th overall) in this year's draft, due to Javon Hargrave signing a three-year, $39 million deal with the Eagles last March. In total, the Steelers have eight picks in this year's draft.


They have no fifth-round pick this year due to trading it to Baltimore last April when they acquired Chris Wormely. In that same trade, they received a seventh-round pick (254th overall) in this year's draft. Their other seventh-round pick (245th overall) this year came from the Minkak Fitzpatrick trade with Miami in September of 2019.


The Steelers' sixth-round pick (245th overall) in this year's draft is from the Jerald Hawkins trade with Tampa Bay in August of 2019.
