The Steelers have had the luxury of fielding one of the best and most consistent offensive lines over the past decade thanks in large part to the high investment in the starters as well as finding key developmental players with next to no investment. Matt Feiler falls into the latter category, as the UDFA out of Bloomsburg didn’t even initially land with the Steelers. After two years on and off the Texans practice squad, the Steelers finally added him to the roster.
His path to stardom didn’t start there, as he still found himself fighting just to make the practice squad. His big break happened in 2018 when he got to start 10 games. He showed off his talent and has since become a versatile and consistent starter. While he may kick inside still, this shouldn’t deter people from seeing him as a top option on this line.
While he doesn’t have the stardom associated with him like some of the other players on the line, Feiler has become a dependable player both at OT and OG. There is some uncertainty about his future with the team since he is scheduled to be a free agent next year, but that shouldn’t take away from what he has done for the team. Feiler went from a player struggling to make the practice squad to one that has become a stalwart on the offensive line.
