The Pittsburgh Steelers will have plenty of impactful players to choose from even in the back half of the first round. This deep draft class gives Pittsburgh plenty of options to address needs like running back or offensive line with the No. 24 overall pick.

The Steelers' top targets for their first-round pick have been revealed ahead of the NFL Draft.

Steelers NFL Draft Rumors

Pittsburgh is reportedly "locked in" on targeting three players at No. 24: Alabama running back Najee Harris, Oklahoma State offensive tackle Teven Jenkins, and Alabama center Landon Dickerson. It's been theorized that the Steelers will pursue RB or O-line with their top pick, and these targets fit that line of thinking perfectly.

The team is in desperate need of a new lead back with James Conner walking in free agency and Harris could immediately fill that role. Harris rushed for 1,466 yards and a whopping 26 TDs in 2020 for the Crimson Tide. He also showcased dual-threat potential with 43 receptions for 425 yards and 4 TDs as well.

Dickerson, Harris' teammate, is considered the best prospect at his position heading into the draft. He earned a standout 91.3 overall grade from ProFootballFocus for the 2020 campaign. One knock is that he's coming off of a torn ACL, the second such injury of his career.

Jenkins is among the second tier of OTs available in this stacked draft class. He particularly shined in the run game, earning a 93.6 run-blocking grade from PFF.

Pittsburgh's targets showcase they're ready to address some of their key needs in the draft. They have the chance to strengthen this roster for a bounce-back 2021 season.
