Adding a wide receiver with one of the top picks is gaining steam

One position that many want to neglect early in the draft is receiver. Most hope that the Steelers will choose to not take a player at the position within the first couple of rounds of the upcoming draft. The organization has a prior history that should account for worry if fans do not want Pittsburgh to take an offensive weapon within the top four picks.

Normally, the black and gold prefer to pick a wide receiver on the second day of the draft between rounds two and three. The Steelers could certainly be tempted to do that again this year, especially if a top talent drops from night one of the draft. If someone like Jordan Addison, Zay Flowers, or Josh Downs are available on day two at any point, they could be coming to the steel city.

Even though there is a depth problem currently on the roster of the Steelers, this is not a top-priority issue. Getting someone reliable and proven in the slot role would be a wise decision, but that could wait until later in the draft. Perhaps signing a veteran like Jarvis Landry would be the best course of action. He has a ton of slot experience and could become a leader for that young group.
