Steelers to Draft OL with Second Pick (+100)

I told you. Najee Harris to the Steelers was more than a possibility. Now that the Steelers have their guy, it is time to build on the obvious hole, the offensive line.

The Steelers return David DeCastro and Chukwuma Okorafor among the team's 2020 starting offensive line. Pittsburgh lost Maurkice Pouncey (retirement), Matt Feiler (Chargers) and Alejandro Villanueva (Ravens).

At 39-years-old, Ben Roethlisberger now has the most questionable offensive line of his career, dating back quite some time. His health already remains in question every time he takes the field, so this is all but a sure bet.

Big Ben has had concussions, a shoulder separation, an elbow tear, MCL sprain and tear, among other injuries. At this point in his career, the Steelers cannot afford anymore injuries to them in hopes of making the playoffs or a Super Bowl.

Pittsburgh extended Mason Rudolph on Thursday, giving the impression that they are not looking to go quarterback on day two of the draft.

The other glaring issues could be adding more defensive talent in the linebacking corps with the loss of Bud Dupree. However, Pittsburgh drafted Alex Highsmith in the third round last season for this possible scenario.

Addressing the secondary and the quarterback position could be options, but likely third and fourth-round at best.

There is no better bet than an offensive lineman here. The odds should go to -150 or better by the time the draft starts. It opened at +125 before I grabbed it at +100.

Pick: Steelers Draft Offensive Line in the Second Round (1.5u)

Options on the offensive line are: Teven Jenkins (Oklahoma State), Wyatt Davis (Ohio State), Jalen Mayfield (Michigan), Jackson Carman (Clemson), Creed Humphrey (Oklahoma) and Dillon Radunz (North Dakota State) among plenty other offensive line talent.
