After hours of study, it has become clear that the 2021 NFL draft is deep. The difference in talent the Pittsburgh Steelers will have to pick from between their pick at the end of the first round and their pick at the end of the second round isn’t going to be terribly different.
Pittsburgh has some clear draft needs and depending on what direction the Steelers go in with their first pick, should be able to snag two starters in the first 55 picks.
With the caveat that I have no access to the Steelers big board, here is my best guess of the guys most likely to be on the board and good fits for the Steelers in the second round.
QB Davis Mills, Stanford
QB Kellen Mond, Texas A&M
TE Tommy Tremble, Notre Dame
RB Michael Carter, North Carolina
C Josh Myers, Ohio State
C Quinn Meinerz, Wisconsin-Whitewater
OL Wyatt Davis, Ohio State
OT Jackson Carman, Clemson
OT Spencer Brown, Northern Iowa
EDGE Joseph Ossai, Texas
EDGE Greg Rousseau, Miami
LB Pete Werner, Ohio State
LB Chazz Surratt, North Carolina
CB Elijah Molden, Washington
CB Ifeatu Melifonwu, Syracuse
DL Daviyon Nixon, Iowa
