Mac Jones is sky rocketing up draft boards, but should he be?

Mac Jones is sky rocketing up draft boards, but should he be?

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports For teams who are looking for a quarterback in the 2021 NFL Draft, is Mac Jones an NFL ready quarterback? The Pittsburgh Steelers are one of many NFL organizations who could be looking at a quarterback in the upcoming 2021 NFL Draft. However, unlike the other franchises who are looking to add to their current quarterback depth chart, the Steelers possess the 24th overall pick. Not really conducive to getting a top tier prospect at the most important position in the game. Every year there are players, for whatever reason, who see their...

2021 Draft Position Rankings: Top 10 Prospects at each Position (Defense)

Photo by Rich von Biberstein/Icon Sportswire via Taking an in-depth look at the defensive prospects as the 2021 NFL Draft approaches. The NFL pre-draft process has been rather quiet thus far, but that could change in a hurry. The EXOS Combine, led in part by former Buccaneers GM and current Stadium analyst Mark Dominic, took place February 26-27. Trey Lance, Ja’Marr Chase, and Gregory Rousseau headline the list of players that participated in the event. Unfortunately, I have only been able to get the results for a few players. If anyone here has found results from...

Mock Draft Monday: The Steelers have a quarterback fall to them with their top pick

Mock Draft Monday: The Steelers have a quarterback fall to them with their top pick

Photo by Mike Ehrmann/ In the latest mock draft, the Steelers take a player few expect to be there at pick 24. The 2021 NFL draft is now less than two months away. With free agency looming followed by the NFL draft in April, the Steelers will have a plethora of decisions and moves to make before making their first draft selection. Because the NFL combine will not be held, pro days are the best option to get player information. It will be interesting to see what limited information ends up being available in regards to draft prospects this year. When talking about mock...

Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports BTSC takes a look at the top free agents at each position, whether or not they are in the Steelers price range. Here are the Cornerbacks. Disclaimer: The author realizes that the 2021 Steelers are probably going to be burning in Salary Cap Hell and can’t pony up much money for free agents. However, you never know what they have planned and it’s the author’s responsibility to highlight the free agent options. The Steelers have very good, but high-priced talent, at the cornerback position in Joe Haden and Steven Nelson. Both will be free...

Steelers reportedly have meeting with dynamic Auburn wide receiver

Steelers reportedly have meeting with dynamic Auburn wide receiver

Photo by Daniel Dunn/Icon Sportswire via The Pittsburgh Steelers are doing their diligence at the wide receiver position heading into the 2021 NFL Draft. The Pittsburgh Steelers don’t necessarily have a huge need for a wide receiver, but if they are unable to retain JuJu Smith-Schuster, the need for another wide receiver becomes amplified. For the global Steelers fan base, this should be something you are comfortable with. After all, there is a reason the Steelers are considered a wide receiver factory under General Manager Kevin Colbert. Leading into the 2021 NFL...

A lowered salary cap means second tier free agents will cost next to nothing

Photo by Hannah Foslien/ Money will quickly dry up forcing talented players to either play for nothing or not play at all We are just a few short days away from the NFL announcing it’s 2021 salary cap. The situation which was rumored to significantly drop now has cause for optimism with deals between the NFL and TV networks reportedly nearing completion. The influx of cash may just save the salary cap, and keep it headed in a positive direction. However, there is still a real opportunity in which that number drops. No matter where it falls, between $180 Million and...

Get ready Steelers fans, the next two weeks should be very interesting

Philip G. Pavely-USA TODAY Sports With March now upon us, the Steelers have half a month to make their decisions known.

There is a lot of work to be done and tough decisions to be made. The Steelers have at least $15 million to shed...

How did 2020 work out for the Steelers lost free agents from last year?

Photo by Justin K. Aller/ For the players who moved on from the Steelers for greener pastures in 2020, how did things work out? The Pittsburgh Steelers are set to have 19 players become unrestricted free agent on March 17. While the Steelers can still sign some of these players before this date, many of them will hit the open market.
