Steelers still need a better nose tackle

Pittsburgh went out and signed Breiden Fehoko and Armon Watts to provide another body at the nose tackle position, but he is just that: another body. While I like his intensity and the reps I’ve seen, he was never a full-time starter. I like the depth and competition that he adds to the room, but he shouldn’t be counted on as the starter in 2023.

Instead, this draft is riddled with potential nose tackle options. The second and early third days of the draft have a wide range of prospects, from the traditional run pluggers that won’t offer much as pass rushers to potential top names if they can develop. There are even some players that could start at nose tackle and eventually move to an end spot.

While Fehoko is a new face, it shouldn’t stop them from adding more capable bodies to the mix. A rookie can still compete and potentially start while Fehoko doesn’t force the team to add a player there early. I like what Fehoko adds to the roster, but he shouldn’t stop this team from adding some new faces to the mix.
