With the addition of two linebackers, including Jacoby Windmon, who demonstrated his skills with 119 tackles and 6.5 sacks at UNLV in 2021, the Steelers have strengthened their defense. However, Windmon’s role decreased after transferring to Michigan State, where he amassed 41 tackles over two seasons. Julius Welschof, formerly a situational defensive lineman at Michigan and Charlotte, is undergoing a position change with the Steelers.
