The Pittsburgh Steelers made a bold, and strong, statement in the 2023 NFL Draft by trading up to pick No 14 in the first round. With the pick, the Steelers took Broderick Jones without thinking about other prospects who might have been available when it was their turn to select, but this doesn’t seem to bother Mike Tomlin or Omar Khan.
Without looking ahead, the Steelers did something they’ve been putting off for quite a while now. That would be building the offensive line and giving their young quarterback Kenny Pickett the “Pickett fence” he needs to have success at the NFL level.
Jones was the first offensive tackle drafted in the first round by the Steelers in well over two decades.
