Team Needs

Priorities

Unlike previous offseasons, the Steelers will be looking to replace starters in several key areas.

With the retirement of C Maurkice Pouncey, and allowing OT Alejandro Villanueva and G Matt Feiler to leave in free agency, offensive line appears to be the biggest draft need for the Steelers, despite bringing in several veterans during free agency.

Most draft analysts concur that the Steelers will go with a running back as well, with a majority predicting the same name as their first round selection.

Depth at outside linebacker and cornerback are some holes to fill on the defensive side of the ball.
