The Pittsburgh Steelers’ offseason started early again, and the fan base seems to be running out of patience.
The team desperately needs to get better on offense, and the NFL Draft always presents a solid opportunity to do so.
That’s why it was so nice to see that HC Mike Tomlin and GM Omar Khan took some time to make the travel to Mobile, Alabama, to watch the Senior Bowl and all practices (via Nick Farabaugh on Twitter).

While this game usually featured only junior players who had met graduation requirements, they opened up the door for all underclassmen who have declared for the NFL Draft this time.
Among the most notable prospects invited and set to take place in the game, we find Oregon State OT Taliese Fuaga, Toledo CB Quinyon Mitchell, Penn State CB Kalen King, Missouri CBs Kris Abrams-Draine and Ennis Rakestraw, Houston OT Patrick Paul, Texas DT Byron Murphy II, Washington QB Michael Penix Jr., Oregon QB Bo Nix, Washington OT Troy Fautanu, Duke OL Graham Barton, Oklahoma DT Tyler Guyton, Ohio State DT Michael Hall Jr., and TCU CB Josh Newton.
The Steelers have several positions that need to be addressed in the upcoming NFL Draft and the offseason as a whole.
And while Tomlin and Khan have often built the team starting with defense, it’s about time they make a splash on the other side of the field as well, although they’re still expected to stick with Kenny Pickett at quarterback for at least another season.
