The Pittsburgh Steelers are hoping their recent draft picks will be able to provide an immediate impact in 2021, but oddsmakers are so sure the additions improve their championship outlook all that much.
Pittsburgh’s Super Bowl LVI odds remained stagnant at 33/1 following the 2021 NFL Draft.
The Steelers are tied with the Cardinals, Cowboys, Chargers, Dolphins and Titans for the ninth-best odds to hoist the Lombardi Trophy next February.
Pittsburgh had the league’s worst rushing attack in 2020, but is hoping to improve that immediately with the selection of former Alabama running back Najee Harris in the first round.
The Steelers also selected former Penn State tight end Pat Freiermuth and former Illinois center Kendrick Green, as they will replace the recently retired Vance McDonald and Maurkice Pouncey, respectively.
Both should also provide a boost to the Steelers’ lackluster run game, which appears to be one of the chief deficiencies holding the team back from being a true title contender.
