Round 7, Pick 246: David Bright, OL Stanford
Pittsburgh lost Chris Hubbard to the Cleveland Browns in free agency this offseason. Typically losing a backup offensive lineman is not a huge deal but Hubbard wasn’t your everyday backup.
Hubbard’s versatility was huge for the Steelers in 2017 as he started 10 games for them, mostly filling in for the injured/suspended Marcus Gilbert. Bright can help fill this role of utility lineman.
Bright played both tackle and guard spots in his time at Stanford and helped block for a great run game. Like Gilmore the pick before, Bright’s versatility will help him get drafted as opposed to being a priority free agent.
The Steelers path through the draft is unpredictable. Their picks are hard to predict due to no glaring needs. What picks do you think they will make? Let us know in the comments!
