Steelers awarded draft picks
The Steelers were awarded three compensatory picks on Monday, giving them 10 total in this year's draft.
Pittsburgh got three extra seventh-round selections, getting the 33rd selection (pick 240), 39 (246) and 41 (248).
The Steelers likely won't make a deal in the first few rounds, but moving up or down in later rounds is certainly a possibility.
While the compensatory picks cannot be traded, the extra seventh-round selections will give the Steelers the option of dealing some of their picks in the middle rounds to move up a little higher.

The fact that he signed just a two-year deal is somewhat surprising, however.
Bryan McFadden also signed a two-year deal with Arizona and found himself back in Pittsburgh a year later.
Now, he might wind up being out of football.
In my estimation, Gay is a slightly better player - because he can play in the slot - but two-year deals don't offer a lot of stability.
The Steelers expected to lose Gay, however.
With Keenan Lewis, Cortez Allen and Curtis Brown in the mix behind Ike Taylor, they're fine at cornerback.
