The Pittsburgh Steelers’ 32nd overall pick is reportedly a subject of interest among multiple NFL teams looking to draft Will Levis out of the second round after getting to use their first-round picks on more pressing needs.
It appears the Steelers could luck out on the Kentucky star’s slip as they would walk away with additional assets should they opt to deal the first pick of the second round.
According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, four teams have shown interest in the privilege of going first on Friday, though the Steelers aren’t all that keen on trading and will only consider a worthwhile offer.

ProFootballTalk also notes that the Tennessee Titans, Atlanta Falcons, and Las Vegas Raiders all made an aggressive attempt to trade back into the first round on Thursday. However, it’s unclear as to whether any of them did so with Levis in mind.
Despite not getting picked on Thursday night, Levis has been the talk of the draft as he was left to watch while 31 names were called, absent his own. The QB had been billed as a top-five prospect and was the favorite to go second overall the day before the draft.
While there may be interest from a number of teams, it’s clear none of them felt he was good enough to use a first-round pick on.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
