One player that Steelers and their rivals need from NFL Draft
By Austin Lloyd
Cincinnati Bengals: Daniel Faalele, OT (Minnesota)
Minnesota offensive tackle Daniel Faalele may not be the biggest name in the draft, but he’s quite possibly the biggest body.
Standing at 6’8″ and weighing an ungodly 384 pounds, Faalele would be borderline immovable in the amount of time that it would take Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow to connect with one of his star wide receivers.
Especially when considering just how terrible the Bengals offensive line has been lately, Faalele’s size does half of the job by itself, while the other half stems from his experience. Being a senior out of Minnesota (a member of the physical Big 10 Conference), he will begin his NFL career with just as good of preparation as anyone else.
The Bengals are currently scheduled to pick late in the first round of the upcoming draft, and Faalele is expected to not be picked until even later. If I were them, I’d take advantage of his availability and give him a shot at preventing the disaster photographed above.
