In episode six of the Last Word on Steelers Podcast we focus on nine prospects a piece. Three that are over-rated, three that are under-rated, and three that are sleepers. Not all of these players are necessarily being associated with the Steelers prior to the draft, although some do have visits to Steelers headquarters scheduled. Things can quickly change at the draft, especially if one of these players becomes the best available player at their position or is drafted too early by a team that thinks very highly of the prospect. Some of the players discussed are Kareem Hunt, Tim Williams, Budda Baker, Brad Kaaya, Marlon Humphrey, Montravius Adams, Ryan Anderson, Teez Tabor, Patrick Mahomes II, Derek Rivers, Dwuane Smoot, Nico Siragusa Tanzel Smart, Connor Harris and more!
