Film Room: Roman Wilson adds speed to Steelers offense

As the NFL Draft approached, it was painfully obvious that the Pittsburgh Steelers needed to add another playmaker on offense. The result was Michigan’s Roman Wilson being selected in the third round with the 84th overall selection. After a stellar senior season that ended with a national championship ring, Wilson continued his rise through the pre-draft process with a very strong performance at the Senior Bowl before posting a 4.39 in the 40 yards at the NFL Combine.

SN Analyst Derrick Bell breaks down Wilson’s game: his skills, his fit with Arthur Smith’s offensive scheme and areas that still need development. It stands as an early contributor and a complementary article with plenty of room to grow. The encouraging part of his profile is the intangible factor that certainly excites Mike Tomlin and the rest of the Steelers staff.
