    Draft: Slot/Big Receivers vs REceiving TEs

    I have a question, why are there many mocks have us taking one TE and one slot WR or a big WR. We already have 4 young WR already on the roster. Wouldn't selecting two 2 TEs make more sense since Vance is likely gone, same for Vannette. They can split ​wide or line up in the slot, be our 5th-6th receivers, all the while learning how to become a complete TE that block.

Letís just worry about the guys in here. I know you guys have stories to write and what not. I love LeíVeon, but we gotta worry about the guys in here. Theyíre the only people that matter to me."

    Don't see us taking 2 TEs in a weak class for that position, especially having a pick or two less to spend.

    Probably because Ben and the OC prefer WR’s to TE’s.
    Tomlinís coming back so what can you do?

    The class is actually kind of deep. There just isn't a bonafide sure thing guy. I could see us taking a Receiving TE and a blocking TE. Harrison Bryant and Colby Parkinson would be a nice duo.

    My thoughts as well, and when I think that there are 4 ( Kmet, Trautman, Hopkins, H. Bryant ) names that are good fits, there is always a new name that pops up and grab my attention Mckeon, Sulivan, Breeland, and now Magnifico!

    Plus I think we have that speedster at WR in Cain. https://steelersdepot.com/2020/02/de...this-team-out/

    The Mizzu TE is a TE who imho can play the Y in our system. Okwuegbunam ( no I cant pronounce it) has some interesting tape. He shows a burst. Not sure how well he'll time but I would bet its good. Hands catcher who runs very good routes (slants n angle routes) . Quick get off and wins at the los rather easily.
    Blocking in line is a bit of a question mark. Not enough there yet to go all in on this guy but I'll say he's a starter for someone before 2020 is over.

    I don't see us double dipping at any position.
    In the last decade, 25% of the league has won a super bowl(the Steelers aren't one of them) and 25% have as many or more playoff wins as the Steelers.

    I don't either, not when we have more positions of need than we have draft choices this year:

    OL, DL, OLB, TE, RB, WR, S
