In the build-up to the 2018 draft, USA TODAY Sports will take a look at each NFL team’s situation and needs.聽
1. They were a different team after defensive anchor Ryan Shazier went down with a spinal injury late last season. The Steelers have drafted a linebacker with their first-round selection in three of the past four years. They may very well make it four of five.

Advice:聽This draft is deep at running back and might even offer players with three-down skill sets close to Bell’s. USC’s Ronald Jones, Georgia’s Sony Michel, LSU’s Derrius Guice and San Diego State’s Rashaad Penny could Womens William Gay Jersey be available on Day 2, though it’s not likely any will last until the Steelers are on the clock at No. 60. Colbert would probably have to make some kind of move to get one of them.
Josh Allen, QB, Wyoming:聽Yup, the latest buzz links Allen and his ballistic arm to Cleveland. But before you dismiss the notion,聽consider that new Browns GM John Dorsey traded up last year, when he was running the board in Kansas City, to select Patrick Mahomes, who, like Allen, probably had the biggest fastball and most upside 鈥?and risk 鈥?of any incoming passer. And even though arm strength remains a dubious trait when forecasting NFL success, it’s definitely a nice attribute for quarterbacks who play in the AFC North’s cold and windy climes.聽Like Mahomes, Allen would also reap the benefits of joining an up-and-coming roster while sitting behind a veteran, Tyrod Taylor in this case.
Sam Darnold, QB, USC:聽OK, let’s have some fun. Buffalo didn’t believe in Taylor and certainly didn’t invest in AJ McCarron at a level that would suggest team brass believes he’ll replicate his championship feats at Alabama. But with Darnold, widely regarded as the best overall quarterback in the draft, on the board in our scenario, GM Brandon Beane has to complete his systematic trek to the top of the board to get the long-awaited successor to Jim Kelly.
