The 2020 NFL draft class is loaded with talent at many positions. Here are five players who are perfect fits for the Steelers if they fall to Pittsburgh in round two.
The NFL Combine is just around the corner, and you better believe I will be planted in my seat watching every second of the four-day event. While the Combine may seem pointless to some, it helps us get a much clearer picture of players who the Steelers will be targeting in the NFL Draft.
Some players will elevate themselves beyond Pittsburgh’s reach with excellent testing this week, while others could hurt their draft status with poor numbers. The Steelers have several needs that must be addressed before the 2020 season. Here are five second-round prospects who would be perfect fits in Pittsburgh:
Jalen Reagor, WR TCU
Talk about a wide receiver who would be a match made in heaven with the players they currently have. Reagor is everything that JuJu Smith-Schuster is not – extremely fast and agile with the ability to create quick separation and make cornerbacks look silly with his ridiculous change of direction skills (think Stephon Diggs).
Reagor is incredible at the catch point and with the ball in his hands. He was also an excellent return man at TCU. His drops are probably his only red flag in his game. However, Reagor is a dynamic football player who is much more twitched up than most NFL receivers. He has the potential to be a 1,000+ yard receiver year in and year out.
I don’t think he will be on the board, but Reagor is a player who could help the Steelers win football games right now. He would also give Pittsburgh leverage in JuJu’s contract extension talks next offseason.
