Analyzing the Pittsburgh Steelers “other” 7th round draft pick

The Steelers didn’t draft a pass rusher in the 2018 NFL Draft, but are hoping to get something out of their “other” 7th round selection.

By Jeff.Hartman

Recently, ESPN targeted a position where a hole resides which each NFL team needs to fill. For the Pittsburgh Steelers, they suggested the outside linebacker/pass rusher position as the team’s biggest need still remaining. You can certainly make a case for this on the Steelers roster. After all, when looking at the depth chart it doesn’t scream “bookend pass rushers” like the days when James Harrison, Joey Porter and LaMarr Woodley were harassing opposing quarterbacks.

Then, as I sat down to look at the team’s roster a name popped off the screen. The name was a familiar one, considering General Manager Kevin Colbert had just labeled him as the “other” seventh round draft pick they would have on the team this year.

None other than outside linebacker Keion Adams, the team’s 7th round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Could the Western Michigan product actually be an answer for the Steelers?

The Steelers have had success with late round heroes. Maybe this will be another one in their books!

Here’s to hoping he stays healthy and can push for a spot. I am also interested in seeing how Farmington Hueggenin does in camp he was on the practice squad last year and a convert from DL to OLB that has some skills out of college. We sure could use some depth at OLB and finding a diamond in the rough would be awesome at that particular position.

All we can do at this point all we can do is hope about these guys but if I were to read anything into the fact that we didn't draft any LBs, inside or out, maybe Tomlin and Colbert know something about at least one of the two mentioned. My guess would be Adams.
