Draft position over/unders for some of top remaining prospects in the 2020 NFL Draft have been released, courtesy of BetOnline.ag.
The list includes potential offensive selections for the Steelers with their 49th overall pick.
With only one running back selected in the first round Thursday night, many of the team’s top prospects at the position are still available.
While it is believed that Georgia running back D’Andre Swift will be selected well before the Steelers get a chance, Wisconsin’s Jonathan Taylor and Ohio State’s JK Dobbins are projected to be available, with their lines set at 44½ and 50½, respectively.
Pittsburgh has not indicated that a quarterback is in play at No. 49, but they could have some options available if they chose to select an heir apparent to Ben Roethlisberger.
Former Oklahoma quarterback and Heisman finalist Jalen Hurts is projected right around where the Steelers will select, as is former Washington quarterback Jacob Eason. Hurts’ line is set at 51½. Eason is right behind him at 52½.
The Steelers do not appear to have a realistic opportunity to pick one of the top remaining receivers. Baylor’s Denzel Mims is slotted at 39½, while Clemson’s Tee Higgins is set at 41½.
The second round of the 2020 NFL Draft gets underway tonight at 7:00 PM.
