Despite the Steelers opting-out of voluntary OTAs, several players showed up to workout

Handout Photo The plot thickens between the NFL and the players. The Pittsburgh Steelers made a statement on Friday, both figuratively and literally speaking, regarding the NFL’s plan to move ahead with in-person offseason workouts. Here is what the Steelers’ statement read, via the NFLPA: “We should not be made to compromise our health and safety,” the statement said. “With the current pandemic still affecting our communities and country, and the lack of clear protocols and protections regarding returning to work at full capacity, the players of the...

If the Steelers don’t get a tackle early, Samuel Cosmi could be their guy

If the Steelers don’t get a tackle early, Samuel Cosmi could be their guy

Scott Wachter-USA TODAY Sports For teams who are looking for an offensive tackle in the 2021 NFL Draft, Samuel Cosmi might be a prospect to keep an eye on. The Pittsburgh Steelers are one of many NFL organizations who could be looking at an offensive tackle in the upcoming 2021 NFL Draft. However, unlike the other franchises who are looking to add to their current offensive line depth chart, the Steelers possess the 24th overall pick. Not really conducive to getting a top tier prospect, but after players like Penei Sewell and Rashawn Slater, there are a lot of talented...

Alejandro Villanueva slated to meet with the Ravens this week

Alejandro Villanueva slated to meet with the Ravens this week

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports The Pittsburgh Steelers could be seeing another player leave within the division if Villanueva signs with the Ravens. The Pittsburgh Steelers had a long list of pending free agents entering this 2021 league year, and the vast majority of those free agents have signed a contract somewhere. Some, like JuJu Smith-Schuster and Cam Sutton, have opted to stay in Pittsburgh, while others, like Mike Hilton and James Conner, have found new homes elsewhere. One of the bigger names which remains on the free agent list is left tackle Alejandro...

Mock Draft Monday: The Steelers take one of the top centers with their first pick

Photo by Scott Winters/Icon Sportswire via In the latest mock draft, the Steelers look to lock in the middle of the offensive line in the first round of the 2021 NFL draft. The 2021 NFL draft is now only 10 days away. With free agency winding down and all eyes on the upcoming NFL draft, the Steelers will have a lot of different draft scenarios which could shake out before making their first draft selection. Because the NFL combine will not be held, pro days were the best option to get player information. With the majority of these pro days concluded, it’s still...

2021 NFL Draft: BTSC Big Board, the Cornerbacks

2021 NFL Draft: BTSC Big Board, the Cornerbacks

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports Ranking and analyzing the top 33 cornerbacks in the 2021 NFL Draft. After Steven Nelson was released by the Steelers, cornerback became one of the flashy needs for the Steelers. It is unknown how high the Steelers will address it, but I think we would all be shocked if it was not addressed at all. I am still a believer in Justin Layne and think he would be fantastic in man coverage schemes. Unfortunately, the Steelers have been primarily a zone team during the Tomlin era, which is why he may become yet another blown pick at that position....

Which NFL teams are more likely to still make moves prior to the 2021 NFL draft?

Which NFL teams are more likely to still make moves prior to the 2021 NFL draft?

While having salary cap space is important, there is another factor which could come into play this time of year. It’s that time of the NFL season with the draft is all but here and free agency has dried up for most NFL teams. With the NFL losing revenue in 2020 due to the global pandemic, the 2021 salary cap took the hit and decreased for the first time ever. This is made for a very interesting situation with many teams, while others were able to take advantage. Right now, many teams appear to be in a holding pattern when it comes to signing new players. While the...

Najee Harris made Alabama’s offensive line look better than it actually was

Najee Harris made Alabama’s offensive line look better than it actually was

Photo by Alika Jenner/ The likely first-round pick’s best trait may be turning near-disasters into monster gains. After the Pittsburgh Steelers were humiliated by the Cleveland Browns in the AFC Wild Card Game, speculation swirled much earlier than expected about what the team would address in its looming offseason. With James Conner a free agent and little firepower at the position, running back became a sure-fire need. As March arrived and GM Kevin Colbert eschewed available backs such as Aaron Jones, Marlon Mack, Kenyan Drake and Chris Carson, it became evident...

Pittsburgh Steelers Fact or Fiction: America “You Can Do Magic” edition

Photo by Joe Sargent/ BTSC takes five burning questions regarding the Pittsburgh Steelers and labels them as fact or fiction. There’s always so much to talk about when it comes to the Pittsburgh Steelers. But the inquiries surrounding the black-and-gold are definitely ever-evolving, especially this week with Vince Williams returning, Josh Dobbs coming back too, the Steelers opting out of OTAs and the Draft right around the bend. It seems like the musical selection that best fits this week’s Fact or Fiction could be the early 80s top-ten hit from 1982, “You Can Do...

2021 NFL Draft: Steelers 7-round mock draft, post free-agency

Photo by Jonathan Bachman/ Predicting who the Steelers will pick with their eight selections in the 2021 NFL Draft With most of their priority free agents off of the market, and Vince Williams and Josh Dobbs having recently signed with the team, it feels as if the Steelers pre-draft wave of free agency may finally be winding down. And with the draft less than two weeks away, it feels like a good time to release my second (and final) mock draft of the year. Like my last mock draft, I won’t use a simulator to make the picks, but will do my best to ensure the players...
