4 bold moves the Steelers could make during the 2023 offseason
1. The Steelers could draft Joey Porter Jr
One of two things usually happens when it comes to the Steelers and the draft. Either their choice is exceeding predictable as it was with Najee Harris and Kenny Pickett, or they throw everyone a curve ball and draft someone like Terrell Edmunds in a year you least expect it.
The 2023 draft could be the latter, and there is no clear-cut direction they might go at this time. Even then, it could be a situation of who’s left on the board when the 17th pick rolls around. However, if you look at the mock drafts, one particular name seems to rise to the top in many mock drafts right now, and that is Joey Porter Jr.
Pittsburgh will have to make some decisions about their cornerbacks before the 2023 season starts. It could be a 50-50 chance that Cam Sutton leaves. Not that he’s a bad corner, but the Steelers could use an upgrade if they feel it’s a pressing need. Not that Joey Porter Jr. is the only option on the table; there is Christian Gonzales and Cam Smith, who the Steelers could take.
However, given his father’s association with the Steelers, you have some idea of the type of player you are getting if taken. If he is anything like his dad, he will hit first and ask questions later. He is also someone who would understand how to play Steelers football. He could make a valuable addition, and the selection has a certain sensibility.
One thing is certain we can not say what eventually happens in the off-season other than there should be some twists and turns we do not see coming. So, for now, we can only speculate, but developments should be interesting in any event.
