The Pittsburgh Steelers’ offseason has begun. The focus on the draft here at Still Curtain is full speed ahead and with that, I bring you the Film Room series covering a new prospect at a position of need for the Steelers every time.
The Pittsburgh Steelers now have a glaring need at the safety position. With the first day of the new league year came the release of Mike Mitchell and Robert Golden.
J.J. Wilcox is safe for the time being but his roughly $3 million salary may earn him walking papers soon. This means the only safeties on the roster with any game experience are Sean Davis, Wilcox and Jordan Dangerfield.
Dangerfield is a career special-teamer thus far in his career and Wilcox had a bad 2017 campaign. The Steelers have a starting hole at one of their safety spots and will need to fill it in the draft or free agency.
There are a few safeties that could intrigue the Steelers enough to pick them. One of those players is Ronnie Harrison from the 2018 National Champion Alabama Crimson Tide.
Harrison could be available when the Steelers are on the board at pick number 28. The Steelers have two obvious needs on their defense that will be looked at there: inside linebacker and safety.
