The tight end out of Texas A&M had a major breakout performance in 2018 and decided to leave early before he had to replicate it next season. With 832 yards and 10 touchdowns, Sternberger seemed like the top option for the Aggies and proved to be a solid receiving target.
The Steelers are going to lose Jesse James this offseason and can’t replace him with Xavier Grimble. Instead, they’ll look towards the middle of the draft to find a replacement, but with this year’s class they should have no trouble doing so.
Sternberger will be around towards the third-fifth round of the draft and can step in and be a contributor immediately. Working with Vance McDonald, the rookie should develop even better route running skills and at 6’5, 250 pounds he should have no trouble blocking in the NFL.
