The Washington product has had an incredible two years as a starter for the Huskies. Both running and catching, Gaskin become one of the primary parts of his college offense and helped lead them to a Pac-12 Championship in 2018.
Averaging 4.9 yards per carry last season, Gaskin showed he’s capable of making every run worth it but also possesses the skills to be a dynamic pass-catcher out of the backfield. Using both sets of skills, he’ll fit in well with James Conner and Jaylen Samuels.
Pittsburgh doesn’t need another superstar runner, but wouldn’t mind having three options in the backfield. If it means keeping Conner fresher for the postseason and still having the same production from two backups, Gaskin will be on their radar once they fill their immediate needs.
