With their first of four picks in the seventh round, the Steelers drafted Valley High School graduate Toney Clemons, a wide receiver from Colorado.
Clemons is the cousin of Woodland Hills High School product and NFL veteran wide receiver Steve Breaston.
"He was a guy we were all kind of crossing our fingers on," said Steelers wide receivers coach Scottie Montgomery.
"He has a unique combination of size and speed."
Clemons, who has been clocked at 4.37 seconds in the 40, is listed as 6 feet 1, 210 pounds.
The Steelers completed the draft today by using their three compensatory picks on the seventh round to take a tight end, a cornerback and an offensive tackle.
Tight end David Paulson (6-3, 245) of Oregon, cornerback Terrence Frederick (5-10, 187) of Texas A&M, and Southern Methodist tackle Kelvin Beachum (6-2, 303).
