Thus far I was thinking heavy BB rows, heavy 1 arm rows, and adding in power shrugs.

Any and all help is appreciated! Thanks in advance as well.
Good question.

If you can do low rack pulls in a rack do them. You can also do low and high rack pulls with power shrugs as a combo move.

Beyond this, here are other sound choices:

1) Dimel deadlifts
2) Romanian deadlifts
3) Good mornings (powerlifitng style, not bodybuilding style)
4) Zercher squats

You could do 2 of these one week, 2 the next, like:

Week 1
Zerchers
Dimels

Week 2
Good mornings
RDLs

I would back this with heavy rows and shrugs.

You can also add power cleans or heavy high pulls from the floor. Another good choice is the Reeve's deadlift.
