The Steelers aren’t really in need of a fullback after signing Derek Watt last month.


I do think they draft a running back at some point, but someone that can be more of a feature back– not a fullback.


Boston College’s A.J. Dillon is an intriguing running back prospect and some might call him a fullback.


Scouts have called him a bruiser…he’s proved he can be a power back… He seemed to like Heinz Field last year, running all over Pitt’s defense for 178 yards.


Dillon put up some big-time numbers the last two seasons at BC, including 1,685 yards and 14 touchdowns on the ground in 2019.


He could be there and worth taking a chance on in the later rounds.
