With the 24th pick of the 2021 DBN Community NFL Mock Draft, the Pittsburgh Steelers select...

Najee Harris, RB, Alabama

The selection and write-up were made by Mean Ol’ Pete:

The Pukesburgh Stoolers have more roster holes than you can fill in one draft. Questions at Center and Tackle on the offensive line, Running Back, Corner, Edge and Quarterback (with the impending disintegration of Roethlisberger). Connor just wasn’t any good last year, he couldn’t generate any yards on his own and the running game suffered for it. They haven’t spent a first round pick on a running back since Rashard Mendenhall in 2008, and I hope this one works out the same.

Pokorny: “My instinct was that I think a running back would be a bad decision in the first round for Pittsburgh — and then in the Kiper mock draft that I just read, he had Harris going to the Steelers, so what do I know. I see problems stacking up for Pittsburgh, and I don’t know what the solution is, but I just don’t envision a first-round running back being the answer.”

The Jacksonville Jaguars are up next, led by Topanga Jeff.
