Ranking the top 10 Pittsburgh Steelers heading into the 2021 NFL season

2. Minkah Fitzpatrick
When the Steelers traded their 2020 first-round pick for Minkah Fitzpatrick in 2019, no one could guessed what type of player they were going to get back. A top-five safety, Fitzpatrick is the critical piece in the Steelers’ secondary and is ranked only behind one other defender on the Steelers.
Since coming to the Steelers, he has been named to the Pro Bowl twice and has been an All-Pro twice. What is great about him is that he has already made his voice heard in the locker room and is highly respected by everyone.
Only 24 years old and entering his fourth season, Fitzpatrick has already played as if he were a veteran over the last two years and soon will be looking for a contract which could be an issue going forward, but only time will tell. However, expect to be seeing Minkah do Minkah things this season and proving the Dolphins and fans who doubted him before his trade.
