By all accounts, the first round couldn’t have played out any better. Fleeting thoughts of Prince in Pittsburgh aside, the Steelers wound up sitting tight and having Cam Heyward fall in their laps with the 31st pick. So that settles any concerns about depth along the defensive line.
Now we turn our attention to cornerback, offensive line and BPA depth. We talked about it early this morning on the podcast, but the consensus seems to be that Pittsburgh should target a cornerback in Round 2, hopefully without selling the farm in any trade-up scenarios.
Wex was on the radio Friday morning and pointed out that Gosselin thinks Brandon Harris could be around when the Steelers go on the clock. Even if he’s not — and even if there’s an early second-round-run on CBs — that should mean a few quality offensive line options at 2.63.
While we wait for the festivities to start, you might as well get caught up. You’re welcome:
