The Pittsburgh Steelers brass has met with numerous players at the NFL Combine. Here’s who could be on their radar prior to the 2022 NFL Draft.

It’s no surprise which positions the Pittsburgh Steelers will be targeting early in the NFL Draft. Their future Hall of Fame quarterback recently retired, and Kevin Colbert would probably love nothing more than to be able to leave the team in good hands with the next franchise passer.

However, there’s no guarantee that the Steelers are going to go this route, and they have certainly been doing their homework on all the available draft prospects this year. Pittsburgh’s brass met with many players at the Senior Bowl, and that list has vastly expanded at the 2022 NFL Combine.

Here are the players they have met with so far in Indianapolis, according to numerous sources reporting live from the Combine:

This is quite the list. While many of these have been formal sitdown meetings with NFL Draft prospects, some have been short, informal meetings. Either way, Pittsburgh’s brass is putting in the work in what could prove to be one of their most important offseasons in a long time.

Who are the Steelers targeting?

As they did at the Senior Bowl, the Steelers have met with all of the top quarterback prospects at the NFL Combine, and I still feel that this is their most likely target with the 20th overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.

Pittsburgh met with a few later-round running backs and tight ends, but wide receiver is a position that could be in play as early as round two. Many of the top prospects will be gone by then, but look for names like George Pickens, Skyy Moore, and Christian Watson as possible candidates if they look to address the WR position in the second round.

The Steelers have also met with numerous offensive linemen who are considered to be first-round picks this year, including Charles Cross, Trevor Penning, Kenyon Green, Zion Johnson, and Tyler Linderbaum. Likewise, Pittsburgh met with the talented Georgia DL duo in Jordan Davis and Devonte Wyatt, as well as other day-two players.

Steelers did not meet with any of the top edge defender prospects this year but did have formal meetings with some early-round off-ball linebacker prospects. This is a position that will be on their radar on day two.
