Over the past weekend, the NFL draft took place. The Steelers completed the seven-round process of choosing undrafted free agents.

For those who missed the draft and want to know who the Steelers picked, here’s your list.

Round 1 – Terrell Edmunds, Safety, Virginia Tech

Round 2 – James Washington, Wide Receiver, Oklahoma State

Round 3 – Mason Rudolph, Quarterback, Oklahoma State

Round 3 – Chukwuma Okorafor, Offensive Tackle, Western Michigan

Round 5 – Marcus Allen, Safety, Penn State

Round 5 – Jaylen Samuels, Running Back, North Carolina State

Round 7 – Joshua Frazier, Defensive Tackle, Alabama

For the 1st round pick, Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier walked out on stage to announce who the Steelers have chosen.

For those who do not know, Shazier suffered from a spinal injury during a game against the Bengals this past December. ESPN reported in February that Shazier has started to walk again, but not many had seen him do that before Thursday night.

This was a very exciting moment for Steeler nation.
