Offensive line shows that Pittsburgh needs to add to the trenches
Offensive line (9): Dan Moore Jr., Kevin Dotson, Mason Cole, James Daniels, Chuks Okorafor, Joe Haeg, Kendrick Green, J.C. Hassenauer, outside free agent tackle
This was one of the most focused on positions for the Steelers during the offseason. This group really struggled during the 2021 season and could not find much ground in the run game. The goal was to revamp the unit and improve it and that seems like it happened since the last time the black and gold stepped on the field.
The starting five seem pretty much set up right now with Dan Moore and Chuks Okorafor returning as the tackles. Kevin Dotson and James Daniels will be the people movers at the guard spots and Mason Cole will be the starting center. There could be some competition during camp for a starting spot or two, but it does not seem likely.
Joe Haeg is the only proven backup tackle on the roster now. Looking at veteran free agents to help solidify the position behind the starters should be high on the priority list for Pittsburgh. Otherwise, they would have Chaz Green or someone else unproven behind them on the depth chart.
Kendrick Green will get a shot at winning a starting spot at center or guard, but that probably will not happen after the early going of the pre-season. J.C. Hassenauer rounds out the depth at the interior of the offensive line for now. He beat out John Leglue in this scenario since he had more experience both at center and guard.
