2018 NFL Mock Draft: Should the Buffalo Bills take Lamar Jackson if he falls?

With no argument the Steelers need to find Roethlisberger’s replacement, the next topic of discussion is when the team should find this particular signal caller. Should the team look in the early rounds to find his replacement? Or are there other pressing needs which should take precedence?

On the negative side, taking Jackson, or any quarterback, would mean the team is pushing back their needs on defense. Inside linebacker, safety and even outside linebacker are areas the Steelers could address in Round 1, and while the Steelers have drafted several NFL-ready players over the past two years on defense, some might view taking a quarterback, although great for the long-term, as hindering the team in the short-term.

What do you think about the pick? Do you think Jackson is a quarterback Pittsburgh should take if available? Or do you think the team has more glaring needs to pick a quarterback on Day 1? Let us know in the comment section below!

See what they say about the pick:

Lamar Jackson, QB, Louisville Teams believed Lamar Jackson would return to school, but he has opted to declare for the 2018 NFL Draft. Jackson has amazing upside because of his huge arm and great mobility, but he needs to work on his mechanics and ball placement. Sitting behind Ben Roethlisberger for a year or two would be ideal.
