Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert feels that all NFL teams will try to trade back to gain more picks in the upcoming NFL Draft.

Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert believes that every team in the NFL will try to trade down in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Analysts and GMs alike are convinced that the upcoming class has one of the deepest pools of talent ever seen, and believe that teams will try to trade back to gain value and more selections when the event gets underway in May.

"It makes more sense in this Draft than trading up," Colbert told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "I'm sure everyone shares the same thought."

The Steelers hold the 15th overall pick in the first round of the Draft.
