- The Pittsburgh Steelers seem to have some interest in Devin Lloyd. The Steelers' first-round pick is #20 overall. This means they are preparing in case Lloyd slides a little bit or they could consider trading up to draft him.
- Lloyd also has Packers fans excited. With the Packers’ first-round pick at #28 overall. Trading up would almost certainly be a necessity to get Lloyd.
