ESPN's Dan Graziano expects the Steelers to look at adding a QB in the Draft but not early on


Who is going to replace Ben Roethlisberger in the future at the quarterback position in Pittsburgh down the road? That has been one of the biggest questions during the 2021 offseason even though the Steelers locked up Ben Roethlisberger for another season and could even bring him back in for the 2022 season... The Steelers will eventually need to find Ben Roethlisberger's replacement and I believe the Steelers organization are at least 3 years behind in regards to finding one. That could haunt them in the future because it will take some time for their new quarterback to adjust in Pittsburgh.


ESPN's Get Up recently debated whether the Steelers will try to make Dwayne Haskins the successor to Big Ben. Dan Graziano says the Pittsburgh Steelers will probably look to address the quarterback position in the 2021 NFL draft, but it won't be early on. He says looking for offensive line help early on makes a ton of sense because when you look at the Steelers and their history their center just retired and the Steelers really prioritize that position.

Typically Steelers center's go to the Hall of Fame and when you look at the Steelers history that matters a lot to the organization. Graziano feels the Steelers should look at adding a center before a running back because he believes the Steelers feel the center position is more important than the running back position. Dan says he wouldn't be shocked if the Steelers went with a center or tackle in the first round and then went to find a running back in the second or third round.


It sounds like Dan Graziano is not sold on Dwayne Haskins becoming the guy in Pittsburgh. He feels as the draft moves along the Steelers should look to make a move like they did for Mason Rudolph and add another quarterback. Even though the organization already has 4 quarterbacks going into the 2021 season already.
