The Pittsburgh Steelers are not looking to move up in the first round of the draft.

The Steelers last traded up eight years ago to select Santonio Holmes.

The Steelers have the 15th overall pick in the draft that begins Thursday night in New York, and Colbert said Monday that trading up in the first round is not an option because they traded away their third-round choice a year ago to draft safety Shamarko Thomas in the fourth round.

The Steelers, however, could trade down.

“We won’t be trading up because we can’t,” Colbert said at a pre-draft news conference with coach Mike Tomlin at the team’s South Side facility. “We can still trade down and, with the depth of the draft, that’s a real possibility. Or, at least, it’s an option that’s available to us.”

Would be damn near a perfect partner to trade up with.
