NFL Combine - Day 2

The 2020 NFL Draft is in the rear view mirror, and fans around the globe are now assessing who their favorite teams have added to their roster. Will the draft picks become big-time players? Will it be what is necessary to put teams over the top and become Super Bowl contenders?

That has yet to be determined, but for the Pittsburgh Steelers fans, they are studying the six new players the team drafted this past weekend.

A recap of the draft class:

Round 2, pick 49: Chase Claypool, WR, Notre Dame

Round 3, pick 102: Alex Highsmith, OLB, Charlotte

Round 4, pick 124: Anthony McFarland Jr., RB, Maryland

Round 4, pick 135: Kevin Dotson, OG, Lousianna

Round 6, pick 198: Antoine Brooks Jr., S/ILB, Maryland

Round 7, pick 232: Carlos Davis, NT, Nebraska

With no first round pick, how does the vast Steelers fan base view the most recent additions to the roster? We here at SB Nation asked fans what grade they would give the draft class, and Steelers fans seem to agree when it comes to the overall group.

The latest FanPulse results certainly paint a pretty accurate photo of how fans truly feel:

A ‘B’ grade certainly seems to be the most consistent, outside of the rogue fans who gave the group a failing grade, but the biggest question on everyone’s minds is whether this group will be able to make an instant impact in 2020?

Will Claypool, McFarland or Highsmith be able to step onto the field and contribute? Or will the Steelers’ rookies be considered more as projects?
