Hunt Presents Potential QB Scenarios For The Steelers

There is no question that the Pittsburgh Steelers have serious question marks at quarterback.

Yesterday, football analyst and CEO/Founder of "Football Gameplan," Emory Hunt, presented some interesting scenarios that could help boost the Steelers quarterback room, which is in dire need of changes.

Hunt had originally suggested the idea of Jayden Daniels during the past summer, based on his projection at that time when the Steelers were going to pick in the 2024 NFL Draft. Daniels is currently a Heisman Trophy finalist after finishing the season with 3,812 passing yards and 1,134 rushing yards with 50 total touchdowns. The Steelers might be able to select Daniels as a mid-day one pick given their recent performance.

The other alternative suggested was quarterback Justin Fields, currently with the Chicago Bears. With the likelihood of the Bears moving on from Fields this offseason, it could be an avenue that the Steelers could explore if they choose not to spend their draft capital on a quarterback.

Hunt mentioned Spencer Rattler of South Carolina in his third scenario. Rattler has committed to participating in the Reese's Senior Bowl in January, so the Steelers should get a good look at him. Given that the team's passing offense lacks Rattler's aggressive style, Hunt thinks the player might be a valuable day 2 pick.

"People are going to remember that he could really spin the football. He plays aggressive, I feel that Pittsburgh right now is not playing aggressive in their passing game. Rattler makes a lot of sense."

The goal of the aforementioned recommendations was to provide depth as well as genuine competition for starter Kenny Pickett, allowing the team to more fully evaluate whether or not he is the best option to lead the franchise as quarterback.
