With their last selection of the 2021 NFL Draft, the Steelers picked Georgia Tech punter Pressley Harvin III in the seventh round at 254th overall.


Harvin won the Ray Guy Award as the nation's top punter in 2020, becoming the first African American to win the award. Harvin led the nation and set Georgia Tech and Atlantic Coast Conference records with a 48.0-yard punting average last year.


The Steelers released Jordan Berry prior to the start of the 2020 regular season but ultimately brought him back in Week 7, as things didn't work out with his replacement Dustin Colquitt. Harvin will compete with Berry in training camp for the punting position.
