The Steelers have all kinds of holes in this year's roster and will have even more next year with the presumed loss of Ben, Ju Ju and Joe Haden. Rumor-level reports point to the Steelers picking up a veteran QB so we'll set that aside for the moment. For most teams, an across-the-board talent deficiency would be perplexing.

The Steelers, however, tend to just draft a linebacker most of the time anyway (5 of the last 8 draft picks). Given the lackluster performance of Devin Bush, they have a chance of doing so again. Bush who has rehabbed remarkably from his ACL has had issues getting his head straight. There were random social media outbursts in the summer and his game performance has led respected Steelers alumni to call out his lack of heart.
