One need look no further than this year’s Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks for evidence of that.
If the Steelers are to avoid a third straight underwhelming season, they must get back to uncovering hidden gems on the second and third days of the draft.
Fortunately for the Steelers, there are several players who fit the bill in this year’s draft class. Many of those players weren’t considered top-flight prospects heading into the combine, but if their performances at the event are any indication, that may have been a mistake.
Of course, working out in shorts is by no means the be-all, end-all to identifying football talent. Still, if these players prove successful at the next level, it will have begun with what they showed at these workouts.
