Steelers 2021 mock draft: Pittsburgh loads up on offensive talent
Round 2: Brevin Jordan, TE, Miami
Jordan is another younger prospect that the Steelers could snag. This will be a huge need with Vance McDonald probably leaving after this season due to cap issues. Eric Ebron will return after the stellar season he had but the depth after him will be slim. Just like any young player at his position, Jordan will need to work on his blocking ability at the next level. He is a huge target that every Quarterback in the league would covet. He has continually gotten better each year at Miami and that growth should continue at the next level.
This season he compiled stats of 38 receptions, 576 receiving yards, and seven receiving touchdowns. He was able to do this on a talented Miami team. His growth can be seen on tape and in his numbers. He is young and will continue to grow but he is already an impact player at this position and an upgrade over what the team has currently on their roster.
Round 3: Javonte Williams, RB, North Carolina
Williams is coming off a historic season in the North Carolina program as a running back. He has topped records and come close to breaking others. He has shown the amazing burst and power for an NFL running back. He can be an all-around player as he has grown into more than a one dimensional player after the season he just displayed.
He totaled stats of 1,140 rushing yards, 305 receiving yards, 19 rushing touchdowns, and three receiving touchdowns. Williams is an all-around player that could be an immediate upgrade over what the team currently has. He brings a unique skill set that no other backs have in the stable. With James Conner leaving after the season, the Steelers need a spark in their running game as well as an addition to the room of players on the roster.
