Steelers offseason roundup

I’m not going to lie, this offseason didn’t go as I planned it to. In particular, I thought I was going to land Christian Wilkins, but I thought anything that far over 20 million a season was a hard pill to swallow for a player with one really good season under his belt.

I was also confident in landing one of the top three center prospects, and more than likely Frazier in the second round. I find it hard to believe that he goes that early, especially after not testing at the combine, but I’m not going to cheat the simulation.

The quarterback position is still blah, but again, I’m fine with going down with the Pickett ship. It puts me in a position to land a top quarterback prospect next year. If Travis can recapture some of his college hype, you could have something there as well (although I would doubt that).

The offensive line did get a nice boost, and while there may be some growing pains at center, I think this should be a strength for the team moving forward. The defensive line also has some help now, and if Smith develops properly, you could have a long-term starter there.

Next. 5 offensive studs from the combine Steelers should be infatuated with. 5 offensive studs from the combine Steelers should be infatuated with. dark

I really like the secondary as well. You have one of the best slot cornerbacks join the roster and a three-way battle for the second outside cornerback spot. The safety room gets a big boost from McKinney as well. But that is all I have for my time as the GM. Let me know what you think, and let's all get excited for the actual offseason to begin next week!
