What the Steelers should do with the 49th pick
#2 Jonathan Greenard, OLB, Florida
This is a player I would love to see the Steelers get. He could very well be a first-rounder because of his production in Florida. He is a guy who could fit into their scheme well because he can stand up on first and second down as an OLB and play with his hand in the dirt on third down as he said on Sirius XM radio.
Greenard has sneaky power for a pass rusher and that could help him get pressure on the QB. The Steelers might not have the money for Bud Dupree and so that leaves the option for the Steelers to go OLB at 49. He is a Steeler type pick with good character and production in the SEC. The Steelers have always liked Florida players like Maurkice Pouncey and Joe Haden.
#3 Justin Jefferson, WR, LSU
Justin Jefferson is a player I have written about before. The Steelers need to add to the wide receiver room and so Jefferson is that guy. He had great production in 2019 with the LSU Tigers going undefeated and winning the National Championship. He also has some route-running ability which will help him get separation.
There is plenty of depth in this class at wide receiver and that should give the Steelers an opportunity to improve the receiver room. They have drafted the position a lot on Day Two historically in the Kevin Colbert era and it has been a consistent trend recently.
