How high should QB Michael Penix Jr. be on the Steelers NFL Draft big board?

Ranking the Steelers options at QB from worst to best

Photo by John Fisher/ Ranking the best options for the Steelers at quarterback Can we just get to March? Now, I’m not going to get my hopes up that the Steelers will do anything well at the quarterback position this spring. The closer we get to the new league year, the more it just feels like it will be the same old Steelers. They’ll roll Kenny Pickett out and have their most uninspired season since 2003 when Tommy Maddox was under center and they went 6-10. And while I’m dreading what feels inevitable, there are so many options that will be available at...

Steelers should learn from 49ers, Eagles’ mistakes at QB

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports Steelers must “know when to fold ‘em” with quarterback Kenny Pickett... As the wise Kenny Rodgers once sang, “You gotta know when to walk away.” The Pittsburgh Steelers used the 20th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft on quarterback Kenny Pickett.
