Steelers NFL Draft Needs

  • Back race: The debate will rage over whether the Steelers should make a first choice for a rewind like Alabama’s Najee Harris or Clemson’s Travis Etienne. Pittsburgh could certainly use an upgrade in the backfield but it’s unclear if that’s the team’s top priority.
  • Offensive line: With Maurkice Pouncey now retired, the Steelers could take over a young center early on in the design. You would also be wise to bring in another device.
  • Linebacker: Because it wouldn’t be a real NFL draft if the Steelers didn’t pick a linebacker at some point.
