Steelers draft: 5 players fans should be hoping for on day two
By Shayne Kubas
Steelers could select WR George Pickens
George Pickens’s draft stock has fluctuated wildly over the past few weeks. It started with him rising due to how many teams have a need at receiver, but concerns about his maturity level surfaced in the days leading up to the draft.
The Steelers are one of the teams who need another starting-caliber receiver, and Pickens would be a great fit opposite of Diontae Johnson. It would also push Chase Claypool into more of a slot role where his physical gifts would be easier to take advantage of.
I know fans are probably tired of the Steelers drafting receivers who have maturity concerns, but Pickens’s talent would be hard to pass on if he fell to pick 52. Like it or not they haven’t let that get in the way before, so it wouldn’t be surprising if he was the pick.
Unlike Travis Jones, I don’t think the Steelers would need to move up for him. There are enough receivers left without the maturity questions that will likely go ahead of him, so staying at 52 and taking him there would be a great value.
