The Pittsburgh Steelers have had a pretty quiet offseason with the biggest highlight being when they re-signed young wideout JuJu Smith-Schuster for what looks like a bargain of a one-year deal.
Pittsburgh was a buzz saw early last season, but it all came crashing down towards the end, before finally getting the boot from the plays via the Cleveland Browns. Nevertheless, the Steelers are still a team to watch out for next season.
Below are three options to help make Pittsburgh have a longer postseason stay in 2021.
1. Najee Harris, RB, Alabama
To say the Steelers’ ground game last season was pathetic is an understatement. Even if they are a pass-heavy team, their running backs struggled to get anything going. As longtime quarterback Ben Roethlisberger ages, Pittsburgh would be wise to have a decent rushing attack to round out the offense.
Najee Harris would provide an immediate impact on the Steelers offense. He has a violent running style and is an absolute bruiser. Harris wears down defenses and at 6’2, 230 pounds, he is tough to bring down even for bigger linebackers. Crimson Tide fans could rest easy during goal-line situations knowing they had Harris who can punch a hole in the defense for a touchdown with relative ease.
