While the Pittsburgh Steelers appear to have addressed some of their more pressing concerns with the addition of linebacker Devin Bush and cornerback Justin Layne in the opening few rounds of the 2019 NFL Draft, there are still a few areas on the roster that could benefit from some help on day three.

Looking at the list of names currently available ahead of the start of round four, there seems to be plenty of talent that could interest the Steelers this Saturday, with quality options at running back, safety, linebacker, defensive line and tight end still on the board.

The Steelers may already have the inside linebacker they wanted in Bush, but there could always be room for another one, with Alabama prospect Mack Wilson arguably the highest ranked player at the position still out there. Projected by many experts to be one of the first five linebackers selected this year, Wilson should come off the board early in round four.

Florida safety Chauncey Gardner-Johnson is another player that appears to have been more highly rated by the mock draft experts than the actual teams doing the picking, still waiting to hear his name called on day three when many projected him as a possible late first-round pick. Gardener-Johnson could make an interesting selection for the Steelers if they are looking to add some more talent to their secondary this offseason.

And for a team that showed clear signs of interest in the running back class this year, there are currently a whole host of options available to Pittsburgh on the final day of the draft. A group that includes names like Dexter Williams of Notre Dame, Bryce Love of Stanford, Trayveon Williams of Texas A&M, Justice Hill of Oklahoma State and Benny Snell Jr. of Kentucky among many others.

Adding another wide receiver might not be high up on the Steelers list of priorities after taking Johnson on Friday, but the talents of players like Hakeem Butler of Iowa State, Kelvin Harmon of N.C. State or David Sills of West Virginia may be too good for the team to pass up.
