Bringing in some competition at safety will be another draft target

Keanu Neal was signed during the free agency portion of the offseason, but that should not lead to complete neglect of the position during the draft. There are some interesting names that could be had on day three that might become role players for the Steelers. None of these guys would likely start this season, but they could develop behind Neal before they were ready to provide significant snaps.

One player that makes a ton of sense entering the draft is Ji'Ayir Brown out of Penn State. As stated earlier in this article, a ton of personnel was present at their pro day and Brown was spotted conversing with plenty of coaches. Joey Porter Jr. might be the prize prospect from that program, but Brown would fit the bill for what this team is looking for.

Daniel Scott is another safety that the black and gold have expressed interest in during the pre-draft process. He could be a late round choice as he has shown great ability on special teams, which this club is desperate for right now. DeMarcco Hellams is another name to monitor as the Steelers sent the house to the Alabama pro day. Hellams fits the mold for what the Steelers look for in a strong safety, but his mold should make for a quality special teams player.
