Has PFF lost their mind? They have mocked the Steelers taking two edge rushers in round 1 and 2
There have been some pretty interesting mock drafts in the 2021 offseason so far. None have come close to Pro Football Focus new mock draft. They have the Pittsburgh Steelers selecting EDGE Gregory Rosseau from Miami in the first round and EDGE Payton Turner in the second round from Houston. I think I have a bigger chance of winning the lottery than the Pittsburgh Steelers drafting two edge rushers in the first two rounds of the 2021 NFL draft.
PFF on the Steelers No. 24 Pick (EDGE Gregory Rosseau): "Rousseau is far from a polished prospect, but the former Miami defender is a high-end athlete with ridiculous size and length for the position (6-foot-6, 260 pounds). He earned a 76.2 PFF grade playing up and down the line of scrimmage for the Hurricanes in 2019 and can immediately step in as a chess piece in Pittsburgh's defense while he develops his pass-rushing skill set."
Pro Football Focus does not explain why the Steelers would be picking another edge rusher in the second round, but they did have the Steelers selecting EDGE Payton Turner from Houston with their number 55 pick. If the Steelers decide to take two edge rushers in the first two rounds then Ben Roethlisberger should just pack it up and retire. Just ride off into the sunset because the Steelers need some serious help with their running game going forward. The better pick would be a running back and an offensive lineman in the first two rounds. Fix the offensive line and get a premier running back then the Steelers will instantly become a contender in 2021.
