This is one of those drafts that look exactly like something the Steelers would do. Big school players and hard-working guys. One assumption you have to make if you mock Ringo to the Steelers in the first round is a contract extension couldn’t be worked out with Cameron Sutton. Hard to imagine they lock him up to go with Levi Wallace and Arthur Maulet and still draft a cornerback in the first.

If Sutton is signed and cornerback is off the table, the Steelers have a ton of flexibility based on how this all played out. Clemson defensive lineman Bryan Bresee would represent exceptional value and wide receiver Jordan Addison would reunite him with Kenny Pickett.
