The Steelers head coach tells all.

The 2024 NFL Draft is officially in the books, and the Steelers have themselves several new faces in the organization that they hope will play roles in their future successes. Among the new players arriving in Pittsburgh are Washington's Troy Fautana at No. 20 overall, West Virginia's Zach Frazier at No. 51 and South Dakota State's Mason McCormick at No. 119 overall.

Meanwhile, the franchise underwent an overhaul on the offensive side of the ball, bringing in new offensive coordinator Arthur Smith while also bringing in quarterbacks Russell Wilson and Justin Fields after the trade of Kenny Pickett to the Philadelphia Eagles.

For Tomlin, things are going well so far. 

"It's going really well," Tomlin said about Smith and the QBs. "All three guys, to be really transparent, are somewhat scalded. They got something to prove professionally. But we as a collective feel the same way. We have something to prove, and I just think that is a good frame of mind to be in as individuals and as a collective as we prepare ourselves for the 2024 season. It's not fun to relocate or get fired or things of that nature. But as competitors, it always motivates us in the right way, and I'm excited about working with the men that you mentioned. And we as a collective have got some questions to answer, so I'm excited about that, as well."

Steelers fans, what is the biggest question mark heading into the 2024 season for you?
