5 players Steelers must select in the third day of the draft

Steelers best fit #3
After the re-signing of Terrell Edmunds, there wasn’t as desperate of a need for the Steelers to draft a safety early in this draft. With them not coming away with a safety option on day two, the odds are they look for a developmental name to help fill out this depth chart for next season. A name that makes a lot of sense is Toledo’s, Tycen Anderson.
The former Toledo safety has the athleticism and hard-hitting nature that this team covets in their strong safety. He uses his size and speed to make plays in the running game. The closer he plays to the line of scrimmage, the better his play is. He lacks the coverage skills to start right away, but in time he could at least hold his own there.
Anderson could serve as a depth safety early and even play some in the box initially if the team wanted to test him on defense. Next year, assuming Edmunds is only here for the one season, Anderson can attempt to throw his name into the starter hat. He has the tools to get there, but he is very much a work in progress at this point.
