Steelers loading up on defense in NFL draft

PITTSBURGH (AP) The Pittsburgh Steelers entered the offseason set on revamping a defense that was the weak link on a playoff team a year ago.

The process picked up considerable steam during the first two days of the 2016 NFL draft.

Pittsburgh has four more picks on Saturday and will likely look for depth at inside linebacker and perhaps wide receiver with Martavis Bryant suspended for the entire 2016 season for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

The Steelers took defensive players with each of their first three picks. Pittsburgh grabbed cornerback Artie Burns out of Miami in the first round, safety Sean Davis from Maryland in the second and defensive tackle Javon Hargraves from South Carolina State in the third.
