4 AFC North draft moves that would spell disaster for the Steelers draft class
Bengals take one of the final remaining top offensive tackle at 28
Paris Johnson Jr., Broderick Jones, and Peter Skoronski are considered to be the top tackles by most experts. They will likely go within the top 15 picks in the NFL draft, but the Steelers will hope for one of them to fall a couple more selections. Finding a premier offensive tackle in today's NFL is no easy task as everyone is looking for a quality player to block for their quarterback.
Beware of a certain scenario taking place where Pittsburgh decides to pass on a tackle in round one, like Darnell Wright. That could lead to a trickle-down effect which leaves the team without many choices by the time their 32nd pick rolls around. Plenty of teams, like the Bengals will be searching for a potential tackle late in the first round.
Everyone knows that the black and gold are desperate for a tackle in this draft, and that could lead to a late run-on tackles in the ladder part of the first round. Cincinnati would be a hard place to see Wright go if he fell all the way to their choice on night one. Some other names that the Steelers could target like Anton Harrison and Dawand Jones could also sneak into the first round because of this same rationale.
