Jacob Cowing could be a superb slot receiver option in the upcoming NFL Draft

Receiver might not seem like a need right now for Pittsburgh, but it probably will be come draft time. We know the Steelers have a good track record of drafting at the position, and they will need to continue that trend with this draft class. They don't need an outside receiver option unless they opt to trade Diontae Johnson and George Pickens for an unknown reason.

One name to watch during the Senior Bowl is Jacob Cowing. He is smaller in stature, so many have projected him to start in the slot at the next level. That is tremendous news for black and gold as they have been trying to find an effective solution there for years. It seems like there are going to be massive changes in the position yet again.

Allen Robinson II was a decent blocker, but he didn't produce enough. The Steelers will save a ton of cap space if they cut him, and that seems like the logical choice to make. Calvin Austin III has not been great during his first healthy season. He did some nice things in the return game but didn't do much on the offensive side of the ball.

Cowing is someone who has always produced quality numbers during his college career. He started at UTEP before transferring over to Arizona for his final two years. Separation is key in the NFL and Cowing can do that once he gets past defensive backs. He should be able to test well at the combine. The Steelers will likely show interest in day two or day three draft prospects at this position and Cowing is a great prospect.
