With a unique and unusual draft upon us, the Steelers have a lot of work to do in ensuring that the 2020 draft class isn’t a dud.
With the NFL Draft just two weeks away, the Steelers are likely busy finalizing their big boards and finishing their scouting for the year. Considering how unique this draft will be, with all of it set up to be done virtually, the Steelers are trying to adjust to this new style and be as well prepared as they can be for the draft. As well, with Pro Days and prospect visits now being conducted virtually, decisions will have to be made with little face to face interactions being completed.
This will lead to an NFL draft like no other, as players who are seen as “top guys” may fall farther than many fans thought possible. With all of the shock and awe that will likely happen, the Steelers can still have a successful draft.
Minus their 1st round pick and with only six total picks in the draft, many fans are fearing for the well being of the Steelers 2020 draft. While the Steelers are pretty well off in terms of starters, there are a lot of long-term issues that need to be addressed.
By following this shortlist, the Steelers can ensure that they will leave the 2020 draft as winners even with the limited capital in it. While some of these may seem like common sense for the team, following an easy set of guidelines like this will help ensure the right players are brought into Pittsburgh.
