The Pittsburgh Steelers are off to a great start in 2020 with a 3-0 record. With great teams come cap issues and turnover so needs will be filled through the draft. Here are some possible draft targets according to the experts.

The 2021 NFL Draft will hopefully be held in person this year after the virtual platform last season. The Steelers are a really good team at the moment and look to be having cap issues in the upcoming offseason. With cap issues come casualties of players being released from the team and free agents walking away to make well-deserved money. Holes will need to be filled as the team hopes to remain in contention despite their cap problems. The only way to remain constant is by developing your own talent through the draft.

This year’s draft has many talented players that could help any team across the league. No matter where Pittsburgh finishes in the draft order, they will be able to select a really solid player that could help make an immediate impact for the team.

The experts in this article were derived from three sites that are very popular amongst the mock draft community. Those three outlets include CBS Sports, Pro Football Network, and Walter Football. Each of these sites is reliable with their scouting prowess and their abilities to estimate where prospects will go in the draft. Each one picked a differing prospect and a different position for the Steelers to select. They have the Steelers selecting from the 21-24 pick range as they see the team as a playoff contender this season.
