With the Steelers' 2019 season now complete, the team will turn to the offseason and everything it brings, including the draft.

The Steelers were quite active in 2019, sending future picks to the Broncos to move up in last year's draft for Devin Bush, to Dolphins to get safety Minkah Fitzpatrick and the Seahawks for tight end Nick Vannett. They also acquired a fifth-round draft pick for quarterback Josh Dobbs from the Jaguars, which they sent to the Seahawks for Vannett.

So what will that leave the Steelers with when it comes time for the 2020 Draft? They'll be without a pick in the first and third rounds, but that should change -- at least in the third round.

They Steelers are expected to pick up a third-round compensatory pick for the loss of running back Le'Veon Bell in free agency last year, but those won't be announced until a later date. That was one of the reasons the team released wide receiver Donte Moncrief before Week 10, to ensure he would not count against their compensatory formula.

But they are expected to receive just one compensatory selection, and those will push back the slot of their picks after Round 3, so those positions will change depending on how many compensatory selections are awarded.

But that won't be announced until later this spring. So, here is what the Steelers currently have based on their finish and the trades that they made.
