Last season the Pittsburgh Steelers spent its first-round pick on former Pitt quarterback Kenny Pickett. And despite the fact that Pickett appears to be the next great Steelers quarterback, Pittsburgh could find themselves drafting another quarterback in 2023.

The Steelers are going to have the decision to make about backup Mitch Trubiksy and his bloated salary and it’s unlikely Mason Rudolph returns. With all that, the Steelers could be in the market for a mid to late-round developmental quarterback to pair with a veteran to round out the depth chart. Here are four guys for the Steelers to consider.
