3 Steelers who need to make a leap in 2021

The Steelers will need plenty of help if there are going to reach the Super Bowl. I think the help is there, just everyone needs to continue to improve on the roster. Doesn't have to be a 'huge improvement, however, there are certain players who I think can help make this happen. I am mainly going to focus on the players who were on our roster last season.


Terrell Edmunds: I personally think Terrell player very well last season. Still, there are some blemishes in his game. However, the man has remained healthy and he has continually proved that he is a solid piece next to Minkah Fitzpatrick on the back-end of that Steelers' Defense.


Eric Ebron: I really liked this signing by Pittsburgh when it happened. However, you knew he would have haters. Still, it seems like the fan base is mostly behind him and I really enjoy having him in our uniform. I would just like to see him increase his numbers just a bit and potentially double his touchdown count. He had 13 in 2018 which might be unrealistic this season. However, I would definitely settle for 8 touchdowns in 2021.


Alex Highsmith: Okay Alex, Bud Dupree is gone. It's your position now. He has a lot to prove. I definitely think he has what it takes. Bud Dupree is definitely a huge void to fill based on his production last season. However, I think Highsmith is up to the task. What he needs to do, is take off all the heat on TJ and start getting some attention on himself. He needs to start being a game wrecker.
