2. Steelers must target Outside Linebacker

This was a position I expected the Steelers to target on Day 2. Luckily for them, they got great value with the rest of their picks. However, they still need to find a competent third rusher behind T.J. Watt and Alex Highsmith.

Right now, Pittsburgh is dangerously thin at outside linebacker. They know how an injury to one of their starters can spell doom for the entire defense. The Steelers brought back former draft selection Quincy Roche this offseason, but only have Emeka Egbule after cutting preseason standout, Jamir Jones.

This would be the position I would expect to spend their fourth-round pick on. The edge defender class is very deep this year with lots of different types of body types and play styles. Because of the Watt and Highsmith, Pittsburgh can afford to roll the dice on players who are rawer and need more development.

Possible Targets: Tavius Robinson, Ochuan Mathis, Robert Beal
