Anthony McFarland Jr.
RB - PIT
Expert NoteView More Notes
The Steelers have already said that if James Conner is healthy, they want him to be that "lead back" that Mike Tomlin has always leaned on. They also said they believe Benny Snell can be that guy if something were to happen to Conner. That doesn't mean McFarland will be chopped liver, but it does mean he's not going to be a 10-plus touch running back without injury. I've compared McFarland to Chris Thompson, which would make sense based on the Steelers' comments on the power running backs. If he gets 6-10 touches per week, he has enough explosion on a per-play basis to make an impact at times, but nothing you want to rely on consistently.

Anthony McFarland Jr. selected No. 124 by Pittsburgh Steelers
The Pittsburgh Steelers have selected running back Anthony McFarland Jr. with the No. 124 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
The Steelers take the speedster running back from Maryland with the 124th pick in the Draft. McFarland Jr. showcased flashes of brilliance at times in college, but wasn’t ever utilized as a true workhorse back. He’s a speedy back with quick feet and great hands and could be a nice compliment to RB James Conner in Pittsburgh. The Steelers got a good one in McFarland Jr. and he should be able to contribute immediately in a variety of ways.
