Watching Barkley play, I'd say it's probably close to legit. Hopefully he doesn't get dinged for being a PSU RB because that kid is special.

Another guy who I like right now as our Round 1 pick next year, his playing style reminds me of Karl Joseph. Really look forward to seeing his senior season.



I was also impressed with this guy as well, he would be a great addition to this offense. He's going to be a Round 1 guy as well.

Safety or corner in the first.

CB might not even get drafted next year. I think they're going to finish the year with 4 really good young guys, plus two of the serviceable Cockrell, Gay, or Sensabaugh.

Safety, on the other hand-- I could see that. TE, Safety, QB, and probably RB all will be in play.

If Ben sticks around QB wont be drafted
OL seems to be riding a nice wave all around
TE seems acceptable to the Steelers
If JuJu makes a mark WR isnt a huge priority and Bryant is here til 2019
Tuitt signs and that takes DL off the list.
Just dont see the Steelers putting primo investment at FS. I cant remember the last time they invested large there

That leaves RB OLB ILB CB SS as either wait and see or priority needs

I think Bud and TJ will be given at least til the 2019 draft til the Steelers spend premium picks at OLB again and if Burns continues to impress I think CB is gonna be flyer and or developmental picks.

Everyone wants Davis to be the answer at SS. Hasnt really happened yet. ILB is puzzling to me right now. RB I just dont believe in handing Bell 12M per year plus longterm. I hope the Steelers look to draft his replacement and tag him a 2nd and final time next year.

I think the first 3 RDs the Steelers are looking for at least 2 of RB ILB SS.

Sean Davis is gonna be fine-- truly, he's more FS type, but Mitchell isn't versatile enough to be exposed in coverage as a SS.

I would take another hybrid type S just like Davis in a heartbeat. Perhaps Brian Allen is that guy. That could work at some point.

2018 Starters: CB Burns-FS Davis-SS Allen-CB Golson-CB Sutton

Reserves: S Stafford, CB Cockrell, CB Gay, CB Sensabaugh

Damn good.

I like that idea but until I see Allen listed at S I think the Steeler will only ever play him at CB which is unfortunate.

That could be a helluva 2ndary

Unless they get lucky with Allen and Golson they will still need a starter at either outside corner or slot. Both Gay and Cockrell need to go.
A coverage safety is needed to replace Mitchell.
Could go inside linebacker, depending on how Williams looks as a starter.
Unless they suck they would have to trade up using a lot of picks for the qb which is not like the Steelers.
TE is in play but they didn't show any interest upgrading this year knowing the were parting ways with
Mr. Injury.

1.S
2.CB
3ILB
4.OLB
5.TE
6.DT
7.G

Thing about CB is: They have Burns, Golson, Sutton, Allen, and Cockrell. All are young. All have either draft investment or experience as a starter here. True, we have no real idea what any of them are going to be long-term, but I think odds are pretty damn good that 3 of those 5 become serviceable starters or better. Sutton, Allen, Golson, or even Cockrell could turn out to be a plus outside CB. Any of them could potentially play inside. I like the group's potential a lot.
