The Pittsburgh Steelers 2019 season is officially over. After finishing the year 8-8, the Steelers, and their vast fan base, has another long offseason awaiting them. Just because the games are done doesn’t mean we stop providing you with features, commentary and opinions to tide you over throughout the offseason!

Today in the black-and-gold links article we take a look at how TCU wide receiver Jalen Reagor might just be the dynamic playmaker the offense needs!

Let’s get to the news:

  • The 2020 NFL Draft has one of the most prolific wide receiver classes in recent memory. Even without a first round pick, the Steelers could get a play maker in Jalen Reagor.

In JuJu-Smith Schuster, James Washington and Diontae Johnson, the Pittsburgh Steelers have one of the youngest wide receiving trios in the NFL.

If the organization follows through on its intention of grabbing another playmaker on the second day of the NFL Draft, that group could get even younger and become a quartet in 2020.

Although the Steelers have used a second- or third-round pick on a pass catcher in each of the past three drafts, they want to upgrade what was one of the NFL’s worst offenses last season and could take a receiver with the No. 49 or No. 102 overall choice.

Of the three starters on an offense that averaged 18.1 points, which ranked No. 27 in the league — minus franchise quarterback Ben Roethlisberger for much of the year — Washington is the oldest at 24. He is entering his third season. Johnson, coming off his rookie season, will turn 24 in July. Smith-Schuster, despite heading into his fourth NFL season, is the youngest. He won’t turn 24 until November.

  • Why the Steelers should start Stefen Wisniewski, but they probably won’t.

Mark Madden: Steelers should start Stefen Wisniewski at left guard, but they won’t

By: Mark Madden, Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

There won’t be OTAs or mini-camp. Training camp is a long way off. There might not even be a 2020 season.

But when the NFL does play, the Steelers will make a big mistake. The right decision is so obvious. It’s equally obvious the Steelers will make the wrong one.

Ramon Foster retired after a terrible 2019 season at left guard. The Steelers signed Stefen Wisniewski out of free agency.

The Central Catholic and Penn State product started at left guard for Kansas City in the Super Bowl. The Chiefs won. Two seasons prior, Wisniewski started at left guard for Philadelphia in the Super Bowl. The Eagles won.

  • My how the NFL Draft has changed...

Stallworth: ‘It was unique’

Fourth Round

1794 NFL Draft

Leading up to the NFL Draft, current and former Steelers’ players will be sharing their Draft Day Memories, from the time they went to the NFL Scouting Combine, through the moment they were drafted. In this installment, Hall of Fame receiver John Stallworth shared his story.

John Stallworth’s Draft Day Memory:

When John Stallworth was taken in the NFL Draft, things were much different. There was no NFL Network, no ESPN coverage. The draft was barely a blip on the radar as far as media attention went.

”It’s a whole lot different now,” said Stallworth. “You didn’t have all the hoopla then that goes along with it. There were no fly-ins to see teams. There was nothing like there is today.

”I talked to Bill Nunn, who was the scout with the Steelers back then. I talked to Bill maybe three or four times. I never got a chance to talk to anybody on the coaching staff. I didn’t know where I was going, how I was going.”
