Losing to the Jacksonville Jaguars the way they did in the Divisional Round made it clear that the Pittsburgh Steelers need to make a few adjustments on the defensive side of the football if they had any intention of bouncing back as Super Bowl contenders next season. On paper, the Steelers were considered one of the best overall teams in the NFL, and rightfully so when looking at the talent they had to work with on both sides of the football.

With that being said, the Divisional Round game against Jacksonville made it clear that Pittsburgh has a few areas to improve on when it comes to the defensive side of the football, especially at the safety position. If only the Steelers’ defense had played at a decent level against the Jaguars, they could actually still be in the running for representing the AFC in this year’s Super Bowl.

Instead, Pittsburgh is left wondering what could have been along with wondering what safety would be worthy of joining the team this late in the first round. Luckily. Alabama’s Ronnie Harrison is athletic enough to fit in right away for the Steelers with the potential to make an impact right away as a rookie.
