Hall could fill the Steelers hole at NT

P.J. Hall

NT, Las Vegas Raiders

Ok, maybe this is more Blockbuster circa 2010, but it still fills a major need nonetheless. P.J. Hall was a small school prospect from Sam Houston State that was taken in the 2nd round of the 2018 NFL draft. He has a similar body type to Javon Hargrave, whom the Steelers just lost to the Eagles in free agency. That said, he isn’t the pass rusher that Hargrave is, but has proven to be a very good run stopper over his 18 starts with the Raiders.

Hall would come in and be the penciled in starter this year, as he has the experience and the talent to start there. He’s young too, only 24 years old and the upside to be a steady starter. Considering he is a run stopper first though; he should be had for cheap.

Cam Sutton has become a valuable depth piece for the Steelers who saw most of his playing time in a subpackage. He is in the final year of his rookie deal and may be the basis of a player to player swap. Sutton has more value as a secondary player, so maybe the Raiders add a draft pick to sweeten the deal.

Projected trade: LVR sends P.J. Hall, 2021 6th round pick; PIT sends Cam Sutton

Davis could use a fresh start with the Steelers

Corey Davis

WR, Tennessee Titans

Corey Davis is a former top-five draft pick and a player that shined at Western Michigan during his collegiate career. His time in the NFL has been inconsistent, but that likely isn’t entirely his fault. He’s played in a consistently run-heavy offense with Marcus Mariota and Ryan Tannehill throwing him passes.

That said, with A.J. Brown shining during his rookie year and the rookie class at receiver so deep, the Titans may look to move Davis. Coming off of a year where he only posted 601 yards and 2 TD’s, his value should be decent.

With the Steelers limited draft capital, the team will likely want to send a pick and get a pick. I think the Titans would want to get that third-round pick from the Steelers to help compensate for the loss of Davis. In return, the Steelers should look to regain some later round capital.

Projected Trade: TEN sends Corey Davis, 2020 and 2021 5th, PIT sends 2020 3rd
