Steelers left tackle Dan Moore Jr.
Finally, we address the offensive line. Dan Moore Jr. was drafted into a starting position on a weak Steelers offensive line. Having played his first year at left tackle for an immobile Ben Roethlisberger there are weaknesses that need to be addressed in his game. However, with a fresh, young quarterback behind him and a couple of key additions on his line Dan Moore Jr. should take his game to the next level this year.
As a first-year starter, expectations were high but as the season dragged on it just didn’t seem like the Steeler’s offensive line could consistently fire on all cylinders. Roethlisberger’s immobility really hindered offensive production. Defenses were collapsing the pocket at a quick rate as the offensive line struggled to play together.
Entering his second season with the Steelers, Moore Jr. should take what he learned from last season and use it during camp and preseason to get himself right for the matchups he will see in the regular season. This is a year that Dan Moore Jr. should step up and become a leader on this offensive line.
