The Pittsburgh Steelers have missed the playoffs for two straight years, and the Steelers Nation won't be happy with another 8-8 season. SI.com's Chris Burke writes that "because of how decimated the Steelers have been by salary-cap issues over the past couple of offseasons, they cannot afford many misfires" in this year's NFL draft.

The power running game that the Steelers have been known for over the years was nowhere to be found last season. But defense is the bigger issue. Another receiver to help take the pressure off of Antonio Brown wouldn't hurt either.

Needs: Defensive end/tackle, cornerback, wide receiver

Here is the list of the Steelers' picks in this year’s draft:
