Let’s take a look at a Steelers Draft prospect who could provide Pittsburgh with some much needed D-Line depth: Michigan DE Chris Wormley.
Currently the Steelers defensive line’s success revolves largely around the performance of two players: Cam Heyward and Stephon Tuitt. Luckily for Pittsburgh, these are two All-Pro caliber players who perform at an exceptionally high level.
However, both Heyward and Tuitt play upwards of 80% of the snaps most games and it would be beneficial for the Steelers to find some help to lessen their snap loads and reduce their chances of injury. Heyward was injured in the Steelers Week 5 blowout of the New York Jets and now Pittsburgh must turn to Ricardo Mathews and Javon Hargrave to fill his role.
In our next edition of Steelers “Draft Watch” lets preview a possible solution to the Steelers D-line depth issues: Michigan’s Chris Wormley.
