Omar Khan did it again. The Pittsburgh Steelers general manager had another highly regarded draft over the weekend, landing four straight players below their predicted draft slot to start things off and checking off nearly ever box the Steelers had in terms of serious draft needs.

How is he doing it? How is The Khan Artist getting such great quality out of the NFL draft board?

Alan Saunders joined Chris Carter on the Locked On Podcast to discuss what has made the Steelers’ second-year GM so special, how he’s getting such value out of his draft classes, and how it’s different than what former general manager Kevin Colbert was doing in the latter part of his career.

Plus, they broke down how first-round offensive tackle Troy Fautanu will fit into the offense, which position he’ll play, whether he’ll be a day-one starter along the line, and if he and Broderick Jones can represent a dominant tackle duo in the NFL. The guys also talked about the legal situation of former Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Cameron Sutton, who has a hearing on Monday for his domestic battery charge, and broke down whether it would be smart for the Steelers to consider bringing him back.
