Steelers 2023 NFL draft: Top late-round prospects Pittsburgh could target
The Steelers will take a quarterback with one of their final picks in the draft
Most of the signs are pointing toward Pittsburgh taking a quarterback in the upcoming draft. They took two last year, but only one of those two remains with the team. Kenny Pickett is the guy moving forward but there are only two quarterbacks currently listed on the roster. The club could always be patient and wait to see what happens with Mason Rudolph, but a backup plan needs to be in place. If someone is not drafted at the position, this team should be a prime candidate for leftover undrafted free agents.
There has been some decent action regarding the black and gold and their interest shown in this quarterback class. Other than the top names that will go in the first round, there is not a ton of quality in this group. The Steelers do not need a perennial all-star to enter the game, but they need someone that could mold into a solid backup behind Pickett in the next year.
Jaren Hall is someone that got some attention from the organization, and he could have a higher ceiling than other names on the list. Stetson Bennett might make the most sense on this list as his age and experience at the position should create a good environment to become a reliable backup at the next level. inTune was brought in for a pre-draft visit and would be another quality third stringer that has the potential to become a decent backup in another year.
