At pick number 49, the Steelers must address the offensive side of the ball. Being that they will miss out on most of the top players, the organization must choose wisely, and select a player that will provide for the future.
This upcoming off-season looms large for next seasons Steelers. There are holes on this roster that need to be addressed, specifically on the offensive side of the ball. With cap space limiting the team’s ability in free agency, the Steelers must nail this year’s draft to fill these holes.
Outside of the Running Back and Wide Receiver position, the offensive line and quarterbacks rooms are full of aging vets who are about to or already have, hit the twilights of their respective careers.
With the Steeler’s first selection in this year’s draft being in the middle of the second round, the team can not afford to miss on that pick. There are plenty of talented offensive players that if available will be worthwhile for the Steelers to select.
Any of these three players would be an attractive option at 49. All have the talent to be successful players in the NFL. Even if these players don’t make a huge impact next season, they will all have the means to develop and significantly add to the future of the franchise.
With the offensive line room aging, and clearly in decline, based on their performance this past season, adding a player such as Trey Adams would be a significant boost to the locker room.
