Steelers 2021 NFL Draft: 3 players they need to consider on day two
The first round has just concluded and the Steelers will need to make some solid choices on day two.
The Steelers chose Najee Harris out of Alabama with their first-round selection. It was a high choice for a running back and some needs are desperately left to be fixed with the remainder of the draft. Today will consist of rounds two and three as the black and gold currently hold selections 55 and 87.
Pittsburgh will need to find players at the center, tackle, tight end, edge, corner, and other positions to play on this team. There is still a lot of work to do ahead before this draft concludes. So watch closely as this team still tries and fill the voids left behind in free agency as many good prospects are still available after night one.
Quinn Meinerz, OC, Wisconsin-Whitewater
Quinn Meinerz has been a name most Steelers fans have kept their eyes on ever since Senior Bowl week. He is a very promising young prospect that could anchor the middle of an NFL offensive line for years to come. He will have a very long and prospering career at the next level and that is something the black and gold are currently searching for. If a guy like Landon Dickerson falls to them at 55 then he could also be an option but Meinerz would be hard to pass on.
The need for finding a starting center is one of the highest of the team’s needs during the offseason. Selecting this player here will sure up the depth chart and find a player that can play on day one. His unique personality and playing style fits in perfectly with the team. This would be a nice selection on day two of the NFL Draft.
