Needs of Steelers NFL Draft

  • Return: Debate will rage over whether the Steelers should pass a first-round pick on a running back 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 a young center early in the draft. It would also be wise to bring in another tackle.
  • Linebacker: Because it wouldn’t be a real NFL Draft if the Steelers didn’t select a linebacker at some point.
