Monday Mock Draft: Pittsburgh Steelers – Way Too Early?

Team needs & why:

OT

  • 31st lowest total spending on OL in NFL
  • Run game to the left has been poor
  • Build from the trenches

CB

  • Defensive scheme thrives with lockdown corners
  • Every CB is only under contract through 2024 or sooner
  • Deep CB draft class

DL

  • Alualu, Wormley, Heyward all 30+ years old
  • Defensive scheme needs deep rotation
  • Build from the trenches

First idea:

Invest in the trenches early like they did ten years ago, and find an aggressive player to handle isolated coverage.

Peter Skoronski

Emmanuel Forbes

Siaki Ika

Will McDonald IV

Second Idea:

Follow the Steeler way and follow the family ties from Joey Porter to his lockdown, uber talented son. Then overhaul the offensive line (and you can never have too many Pickens).

Joey Porter Jr.

Broderick Jones

O’Cyrus Torrence

Zacch Pickens

Third Idea:

Draft the best overall player available, taking physical attributes, positional value and potential productivity into consideration.
