So True. And we just picked up the best RB in the draft by far. No one else was close.

OL was 75% of the problem. Lack of a RB was the other 25%. Harris may be good, but we have no starting caliber LT or C. We have no RT, unless you count Banner or Chuks as starting material.

2nd and 3rd round. Some very good OL still on the board.

I'm sure they will get a couple with the next few picks. When you have a shot at the best RB available, you take it. Especially when you have as bad a run game as we did

We could have picked the 6th best OL in the draft or the #1 RB. It really was an easy decision.

They better address Center and Left Tackle with 2 and 3 or picking Harris will be a waste.

This is just awesome!!! with the 24th pick of the NFL draft the steelers select.. - Page 5 3562723908 : I was watching the Penguins...kept checking back but was afraid to watch because I felt sure Harris would get taken before us. I settled in at pick 16 and kept expecting Goodell to say a name starting with N. So glad we got him with the 24th pick of the NFL draft the steelers select.. - Page 5 1948569602

Let's get OL/C next 2 picks....

Great pick. Harris really is the best RB coming out this year. The Steelers got the best player at a position they are the weakest.

Kirk who do you want to see in round 2?

I'd love to see Humphrey still there.

Normally I hate taking running backs in round 1, but with Harris still on the board we had no choice. After Javonte Williams will be drafted and that will be before 55 there simply aren't day 1 starting RB's left in this year's draft. Harris reminds me of Le'Veon Bell, but with a better head. Here's a nice piece about him:

https://steelersdepot.com/2021/04/new-steelers-rb-najee-harris-spent-most-of-draft-day-visiting-homeless-shelter/

He's also seen as a great teammate. While he was not able to perform on his pro day because of an ankle injury, he drove 9 hours just to encourage his teammates that day. He will be a great addition to the locker room.

As for 55 I would take Humphrey over Dickerson, just because Dickerson has an extensive injury history, but let's see if one of them will still be available at 55 first. I guess it's 50-50. If not, I would kick the tires on Josh Myers. It's the only other center I see who could be a decent starter from day 1. Maybe Trey Hill is an option but I don't like it that he had serious weight problems last year so that makes me believe he isn't professional enough to do the job.

Could Freiermuth be a possibility? not saying they should but some people seem to like him.

Seems like a good player but I'm surprised at the pick. Hopefully they can get a C or OL round 3. The Steelers wasted no time when it was their turn so they must really have wanted him.

Freiermuth I like. 6'5" and 250lbs.

So what am I missing about the OL? Are we that comfortable with [left to right]: Banner, Dotson, Finney, DeCastro, and Chuks?

I am NOT, but I am not in the front office, either.

Man oh man. We need help on the line. Really thought Creed Humphrey was going to be the pick.

Glad to get a stud TE but wow.

Humphrey would have been the safe pick, this is the ballsy pick. I actually like it. Humphrey wouldn't have gotten us over the hump. With Freiermuth we actually have the best skill player set in the NFL and all very young as well, 4 great WRs, Freiermuth and Harris. And even Ebron as TE2. This will give opposing defenses a lot to deal with. And yes, the OL is still a problem, but with these skill players we have a lot of options which can help out a poor OL.

I've heard the Steelers front office say many times they think the draft is deep in OL and C. maybe they figure they can still get someone decent RD 3. The team has a lot of needs with OL being top of list. TE has been a need too. Other than Ladarius Green. in between him being hurt, they've not had much at TE since Heath.

Jerry Micco said this on Post Gazette chat:

Penn State Michael Menet could be had in round 4. His problem is he's "only" 293 pounds. NFL nose guards would ragdoll him. Technically, he's very good. Put 10-12 pounds on him and he'd be fine.

I would have bet the farm on Creed. I just don't get it.

Unless...

We're going to be playing a very different style in 2021 under Canada. The personnel we have fulfill that style, or we are confident we can get those specific players really late in the draft. I shutter to think of the alternative: we were 31st in rush blocking and it can't get much worse.

Also, from Reddit: "Canada took over the Offense and said we're good with these guys. Sarrett and Fichtner just sucked that bad."
