Steelers mock offseason: Steps to the best possible roster in 2021
By Andrew Falce
Day three selections
Our acquired pick from the Bengals is an easy selection, as Quinn Meinerz becomes the selection. He gained his fame from the senior bowl and with the recent report that the Steelers had a presence at his pro day, and if the team can find a starting center in free agency, adding Meinerz to develop would be a wise move.
Patrick Jones II out of Pittsburgh is the move next, as the Steelers look to add depth to their pass rushers. He is more in the mold of a Bud Dupree as a bigger and athletic option, but he will need to develop as an every-down player. To close out the fourth round, the team selects Amari Rodgers from Clemson. He is a natural slot option and another body to try to fill in the void that JuJu Smith-Schuster will be leaving behind.
Three picks left, and at 217, the Steelers select DJ Daniels, the corner out of Georgia. Nothing special about him but has inside/outside flexibility and decent athleticism. Khyiris Tonga is the following pick, as the BYU defensive lineman has incredible strength and could bulk up as a nose tackle down the road. The final pick is Kenny Yeboah, the tight end out of Ole Miss. I actually had him in my last mock. The Steelers have shown some interest and Yeboah is an adequate blocker.
With that, the Steelers wrap up their first offseason under their new GM (me). What do you all think? Could you have done better? Comment below what you would have done differently and where you think improvements could have been made.
