  • Could Steelers poach an athletic developmental QB?
  • Some high picks that haven't worked out for other teams could be added depth for Pittsburgh

Steelers target from Lions: RB Jermar Jefferson

If you haven’t figured this out yet, I’m writing this post alphabetically, and to this point, the Lions have the worst potential player fits for the Steelers. Their roster isn’t bad, but their potential cuttable players just don’t line up with Pittsburgh’s needs.

I took the cop out and went after Jermar Jefferson. No, he isn’t a great player by any means, but he has shown some flashes of good play and the ability to run hard. He looks like he is on the outside looking in of Detroit's roster right now, so he should be available to the team.

I like his ability as a third running back, but the Steelers would be just as likely to stick with what they have unless those names crater. Jefferson could be a viable name to fill out the back of the running back depth chart.

Others considered: OG Logan Stenberg

Logan Stenberg wouldn’t help immediately, but it would be a case of the team going after a player they had a lot of interest in when he was drafted. The Steelers had a lot of connections to Stenberg when he was drafted, and he appears to be on the outs with the Lions. Guard is a deep spot, but Stenberg could be an interesting name.
