The Pittsburgh Steelers had a plan going into the offseason for their vacant quarterback position and so far, they've executed it to perfection.

General manager Kevin Colbert spoke to some of the Steelers media on Sunday afternoon and confirmed that they didn't want to give up draft capital to get a veteran starter.

He also said that just because they signed Mitch Trubisky doesn't mean that they won't add another quarterback via the draft.

"We’ve been at top quarterback pro days for the first time in a long time because we may be in a position where we have a need," Colbert said. "Does that mean we’re taking one? Possibly.”

The Steelers have already been in attendance at Liberty's Pro Day to see Malik Willis, plus Pittsburgh's Pro Day to look at Kenny Pickett. Pittsburgh also sent the house to Ole Miss to watch Matt Corral this past week. The NFL world isn't surprised that the Steelers may take another quarterback via the draft.

The Steelers have made it known that they're interested in taking a quarterback early in the draft. It remains to be seen if they stay at No. 20 or trade up to get one.
