4. Shaquil Barrett, EDGE – Currently with Denver
The Steelers got after the quarterback tied with Kansas City for the best clip at 52 sacks on the year. That marks the second year in a row they have been, or tied to be, first in the league in sacks after a 56 sack year last season.
While they have had success sacking the quarterback, not many of those sacks are due to their edge rushers. T.J. Watt was the bright spot leading the team with 13 sacks off the edge.
Bud Dupree showed a big flash forward in 2018 but still has not become the player most thought he would. Shaquil Barrett wants to be a starter and he could get that opportunity here beating out Dupree.
Barrett could thrive in Pittsburgh opposite Watt and form a very dangerous pass rush duo off the edge. Couple that with a possible new defensive coordinator or even just new position coaches and the sacks for Pittsburgh could once again total out to number one in the league in 2019.
