Safeties: 6th-7th round
If there is a safety selected near the end of the draft by the Steelers in 2020, they probably stand a pretty good shot at making the roster. Sean Davis is now with the Redskins, and Jordan Dangerfield is really the only option as a backup safety.
Pittsburgh could look to address this position sooner, but it’s not a very good safety class this year, and many of the safeties will get over-drafted. instead, the Steelers could look to add a player like Brandon Jones, Julian Blackmon, or Alohi Gilman late in the draft.
Terrell Edmunds isn’t going anywhere. And while a quality depth option would be nice, the Steelers would be forced to take one much earlier than they would like to. Drafting a safety late could do the trick this year.
- Julian Blackmon, Round 7
- Brandon Jones, Round 6
- Alohi Gilman, Round 7
The Steelers don’t have the resources to fill all of these needs, but there are certain positions that poise greater value at different points in the draft. Every team has needs to address, but let’s hope Pittsburgh doesn’t ignore value in the process.
