The Pittsburgh Steelers' Antonio Brown saga is officially over - finally. The AFC North franchise put the final touches on a trade that sent Brown to the Oakland Raiders.

Sure, the actual trade occurred over a month ago, but the Steelers finally cashed in picks from the Oakland Raiders.

In the trade for Brown, the Steelers received a third and a fifth-round pick.

So, who did Pittsburgh draft with those selections?

Well, the Steelers seem to have found a replacement for Antonio Brown by drafting Toledo wide receiver Diontae Johnson - who, ironically, was compared to Brown in the pre-draft process.

Pittsburgh also landed former Michigan tight end Zach Gentry with the fifth-round pick from the Raiders.

The trade with the Raiders also gave the Steelers an opportunity to trade up for star linebacker Devin Bush in the first round.

With an early third-round pick in hand, Pittsburgh felt comfortable losing a second-round pick this year for the chance to fill a major hole at middle linebacker.

The Raiders and Steelers will now move forward with their respective trade hauls.

But who won the trade?

We'll have to wait to find out.

Stay tuned for the latest from the final day of the draft.
