In case you don’t remember, the Pittsburgh Steelers didn’t have a first-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. They used their 2020 first round to acquire safety Minkah Fitzpatrick from the Miami Dolphins. A move that turned out to be brilliant for the Steelers.
However, that doesn’t mean that this 2020 NFL overhaul by our friends at Draft Wire doesn’t matter to Steelers fans. In fact, looking at the 2020 NFL Draft through a new lens really does give some perspective on the quality of the Steelers Draft.
In their redesign, Draft Wire has Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool at No.19 overall for the Las Vegas Raiders. Claypool has had an impressive rookie campaign and looks set to become a superstar in 2021. Claypool led the Steelers in touchdowns (9), total number of touchdowns (11) and was second in yards (873) . Claypool also led the team in yards per take with 14.1 which is an even more impressive number considering that as a team they only average 9.6 yards per take. .
