Steelers decide to keep position versatility at offensive line
Offensive line (9): Dan Moore Jr. Kevin Dotson, Mason Cole, James Daniels, Chuks Okorafor, Kendrick Green, Joe Haeg, John Leglue, J.C. Hassenauer
Right now, the starting offensive line seems to be set for the most part, besides left guard. Dan Moore Jr. will be the returning left tackle for the Steelers and he has been getting rave reviews at camp thus far. Mason Cole seems to have secured the starting center spot as the club hopes that he can stabilize the position.
James Daniels will be the starting right guard after upgrading the position during free agency. Right tackle will be Chuks Okorafor again after he was brought back in free agency after initially testing the waters. Left guard is where things could get interesting as Kevin Dotson and Kendrick Green have been listed as the dual starters on the first depth chart released to the public.
That is interesting as Green has seemingly been in the doghouse in Pittsburgh since he started at center in his rookie season. He will have a better chance to start for this team than many thought. Dotson seems like he should have the fast track to start, but he has had injury issues in the past and other concerns with his play.
The depth filling out this roster is based on some position flexibility as well. Joe Haeg is the swing tackle and provides some depth, although you would like better if you were the Steelers. John Leglue makes the team as he has been hard at work trying to show position versatility at tackle, guard, and center in camp. J.C. Hassenauer has been able to play both center and guard with starting experience and should make this club because of that.
