What should The Pittsburgh Steelers Do This Offseason!

 

 

    As the 2017-18 NFL season ended, a new season began right before our own eyes. Some teams need all the help they can get, and others can get by with what team they had last season. The Pittsburgh

Steelers came up short in the AFC Divisional Game, with a loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars, 45-42. To be possible Super Bowl LIII contenders, here are a list of things they should do:

 

1A. Re-sign/Franchise Tag Running-back Le’Veon Bell


 

Approximately half of the Steelers offense is run through Bell. He is one of the best running backs (if not the best) in the game today. He’s young (26 years old), very

dynamic, and he takes some pressure off of Big Ben, Antonio Brown, and the rest of the offense. Letting him become a free agent

would be a huge mistake. No one can replicate what does Bell does for the Steelers. Sure, he may get hurt and have been suspended a few times, but he is the

best option for the Steelers at running back.

 

1B. If they don’t re-sign Bell, focus on drafting a Running-Back in the Upcoming NFL Draft




RB – Derrius Guice, LSU RB Ronald Jones, USC RB Sony Michel, Georgia

If the Bell option falls through, the Steelers should draft a running back instead for signing a free agent.

Running Back Options:

Derrius Guice, LSU: – A Power and Speed Back that can fit the Steelers’ scheme.

Saquon Barkley, Penn State – An all-around dynamic back that can do everything. He will not fall out of top ten of the NFL Draft.

Ronald Jones, USC – A small speed back. Might not be an every-down back but will contribute to the offense.

Sony Michel, Georgia – An explosive and speed back who could fall to the Steelers in the second round

Nick Chubb, Georgia – Power back who is also an every-down back

Kerryon Johnson, Auburn – Great skill set that could compare to Bell (in my opinion).

 

 

2. Draft Players In This Year Draft

Steelers Team Needs: (ILB, QB, CB, Safety)

 

Possible Draft Picks:

ILB – Rashaan Evans, Alabama

Leighton Vander Esch, Boise State

 

QB – Josh Allen, Wyoming

Mason Rudolph, Oklahoma State

Lamar Jackson, Louisville

Luke Falk, Washington State

Riley Ferguson, Memphis

J.T. Barrett, Ohio State

Austin Allen, Arkansas

Brandon Slivers, Troy

 

CB – Mike Hughes, UCF

Carlton Davis, Auburn

Donte Jackson, LSU

Isaiah Oliver, Colorado

 

Safety – Ronnie Harrison, Alabama

Marcus Allen, Penn State    

 

 

    IF the Steelers re-sign Bell, they also need to draft quality players to fill in holes on their team. EVERYONE needs to stay healthy. If so, the Steelers could be competing again for Super Bowl LIII.
