3 next steps for Steelers after signing Mitch Trubisky
After signing Mitch Trubisky, the Steelers can focus on adding to different position groups on their roster through the draft and free agency.
The Steelers made some impressive moves this year in free agency. They have signed a handful of players to fill holes on the roster. But there is still some more work the Steelers can do to bolster and add depth to the roster.
Here are the next steps the Steelers should make after signing Mitch Trubisky.
Steelers should draft Jordan Davis
The Steelers have been known for their formidable defense since the beginning of time it seems. It’s no secret that the loss of Stephon Tuitt and Tyson Alualu’s season-ending injury greatly affected the defensive efficiency last season. This is where Jordan Davis becomes a necessary foundation for this defense.
Davis currently ranks 20th on PFF’s Big Board, which indicates that he might be available for the Steelers to draft him 20th overall. Davis would be an immediate impact player for Pittsburgh. If you think that’s a stretch, just close your eyes and imagine trying to block a 6’6″ 340-pound man. Davis would add an unreal level of size, talent, and speed to the defensive front for the Black and Gold.
By drafting Davis, Pittsburgh would give him the opportunity to play with and learn from veterans like Cam Heyward, Tuitt, and Alualu. Not only that, but drafting Davis adds depth to an already strong defensive line, which could really be beneficial in the later points of the season.
Whether you like the Mitch Trubisky signing or not, he provides a bridge for the Steelers until they have a better idea of who will become their next franchise QB. This signing allows them to be aggressive in the first round of the draft to address other areas of the roster.
