Round 2:

The Steelers need to add some more talent to the S room, and even after adding Johnson in this mock scenario, the Steelers look to find a more permanent running mate for Minkah Fitzpatrick. Andre Cisco was one of the top ballhawks in college over the past two years, and many are expecting him to be one of the top S prospects entering the draft next year.


Right now, it seems like there is a logjam of prospects vying for that top spot, and it could lead to the group tumbling as they did in 2020. Assuming Cisco fell to the latter part of the second round, he would make a lot of sense for the Steelers.

The combination of him and Fitzpatrick would allow for Terrell Edmunds to enter more of a sub-package role close to the line of scrimmage. The continued investment in the secondary has paid off for the Steelers, so keeping the room youthful and stocked with talent is a must. Cisco has some struggles in the run game, but assuming he can bulk up a little, he should be an early favorite to start in his rookie year.
