4 Steelers whose jobs are in jeopardy after the 2020 NFL Draft
If the Steelers would have taken a defensive tackle early in the draft, I would have been sure that Dan McCullers had played his last season in Pittsburgh. Now, I’m second-guessing myself, as they ignored the position until the 7th round of the draft.
Still, McCullers is a player that has been on the roster bubble nearly every season since entering the league as a 6th round pick back in 2014. However, he provides nothing in terms of pressure on the quarterback, and his defensive snaps are typically reserved for goal-line formations.
McCullers played 12 percent of snaps or less over the past two seasons, and he is hardly an essential asset to the team. If a young player like Carlos Davis or XFL stud Cavon Walker proves to be beneficial, McCullers could finally be gone this year.
