Round 6, 198th overall
Bravvion Roy, NT, Baylor
Bravvion Roy is a throwback to that old school style of NT, which is a blessing for the Steelers and a curse for Roy. He is short and well-built standing at 6’1, 320lbs, and he knows how to use his stature to give himself better leverage.
The value he brings is with stopping the run, as he has enough power plug up running lanes. While he popped a little as a pass rusher, he will likely be only a two-down player in the NFL and doesn’t have the versatility that an early-round option like Neville Gallimore has as a pass rusher. This makes his upside limited, but he seemingly has a high floor as well.
He likely wouldn’t be a year one starter, meaning Daniel McCullers will see the lions share of those snaps, but he could develop into a limited starter over time. A year in an NFL conditioning program will be big for Roy, and the Steelers would use him in the role he is best served to play. He won’t be as dynamic as Javon Hargrave was with the Steelers, but for a 6th round pick, he could turn into a low-upside solid starter down the road.
