If they want to win now, RB has shown they can step right in the quickest and make an impact.
If Ben is healthy, I think we are ok at WR. No matter who the QB is they need a TE, would be nice to be able to get one in Free Agency. TE's don't usually just step in and produce as rookies.
if we go TE, it'll be Moss in the 2nd
Steelers need a lot of help on offense. They need a genuine RB, a TE, an OT, and a G. They can roll with the defense after they tag Bud, who turned from Dud Durpee into Bud the Stud with his 2019 performance (68 tackles, 11.5 sacks, 4 forced fumbles, 3 passes defensed).
One pick in the 5th. The extra one was used on Vannett.

TE is a position we have had really bad signings at, LaDarius Green and then the trade for McDonald have not offset the loss of Heath. The TE position has really advanced beyond a guy who can just run/pass block or a pure pass catcher. You have two teams with elite TEs in the Super Bowl this year. Its a huge position need for us to fill.
To me TE is the most glaring weakness of our offense. RB is a position we definitely need to upgrade as I can't view Conner as a long term answer given his injury history. They just spent a 4th on Snell. Not sure if they want to dip back in to get another back early but there is absolute value in drafting RBs in the first several rounds of the draft beyond round 1.
If we go WR I would be surprised, our WRs started to come together save for the Juju injury that put a damper on his season.
On defense I only see a need at NT. Barron is replaced by Bush and then you can start looking for depth behind Watt/Bud and also someone behind Vince Williams late in the draft.
So the Steelers can go Hubbard in the 2nd, Kmet in the 3rd, and OG in the 4th. Put Ben back at QB, and with DJ a year better, Juju healthy again, I think the offense can do the job.
I believe we have zero picks in the 5th. One went for Vannett, other went to Miami in exchange for a 4th in Minkah trade.
Is there a tight end out there we can draft who can start RIGHT NOW? Blocking and receiving? Otherwise I say get a free agent vet, along with keeping Mcdonald.
Tight end is a luxury position for this team.
They have 2 second rounders and a third rounder at wide receiver, so I doubt they take another in the second. If healthy, the duo of Conner and Snell isn't too bad.
You fix the offensive line and get some guys who can run block, a lot of the skill position problems will go away very quickly.

Down in a hole and I don't know if I can be saved
See my heart I decorate it like a grave
You don't understand who they thought
I was supposed to be
Look at me now a man
Who won't let himself be
