Steelers get on the Board!

Having no first round pick since 1967, the Steelers picked yesterday for the first time in the 2020 draft.

The Steelers passed on specific need and grabbed two high ceiling skilled propsects:

Chase Claypool, WR, Notre Dame – A big physical receiver who ran a 4.42 40 at the combine. Has good hands and can be a crushing blocker. It was a strange pick because of the time, but given his size and versatility, he will contribute early.

Alex Highsmith, Edge, Charlotte – This was a classic Steelers pick. He will replace Anthony Chickillo in the Steelers defense as a situational pass rusher and he fits that 3-4 outside linebacker mode. He is strong on technique and athleticism and has a complete skill set to play in the NFL.

It was a good haul, if unspectacular. The downside is they didn’t address any specific needs, like CB, Offensive line depth and a Running back.

The Running Back market looks thin on Day 3 as you would expect, there are still some nice looking tackles and o-linemen available, Cornerback can still be a place to make a move.
