Predicting the positions the Steelers will select in the 2021 draft

It’s not about which exact player or in which round, but what positions will the Steelers draft.

On Tuesday’s episode of the Scho Bro Show podcast, the question was posed as to what positions the Steelers would select in the upcoming 2021 NFL draft. The discussion was not about which players, or determining which round each position would go, it was simply looking at what positions for Steelers would take.

Of course, it is merely speculation and basically an exercise in seeing how many each one of us could get correct. Additionally, it assumes the Steelers make eight draft selections and not either gain more capital by trading back or give up picks in order to trade up.

Here were the selections each of us made. Note that they are listed in no particular order.

Big Bro Scho:

Center
Tackle/guard
Running back
Quarterback
Outside linebacker
Inside linebacker
Cornerback
Safety

Dave Schofield:

Center
Tackle
Running back
Tight end
Outside linebacker
Outside linebacker
Inside linebacker
Cornerback

To clarify a few of these selections, Big Bro Scho specifically said he wanted a lineman that could play either guard or tackle coming out of the draft, as this was simply not trying to say it would be one or the other selected. I specifically thought the Steelers would double up on one position in this draft and I thought it would be outside linebacker since they are currently very thin at the position.

It was interesting that both of us went with four offensive players and four defensive players. This doesn’t have to be the case, but it’s simply how it worked out.

So now it’s your turn! There’s no need for names or assigning a position to a round. The question is simply predicting the positions of the Steelers scheduled eight draft picks for the 2021 NFL draft. The comments are open, you should know what to do.
