Members of the Steelers who might have a safer job than expected
Most of the starting offensive line will likely still be intact next season
It would be nearly impossible to find another group on this roster that has been under more scrutiny than the Steelers offensive line. These trench guys have not been able to do a great job as a unit. They have gotten better as the weeks have gone by, but there are some significant weak points that desperately need to be upgraded.
Kenny Pickett is supposed to be the franchise guy, so you will need to invest in the guys that protect him. You do not want the young signal caller getting hit on a routine basis and taking a toll on his body. He needs protection so finding some upgrades this offseason will need to be at the top of Khan’s to-do list.
Even though this group is not going to wow anyone, they have shown some positive signs in the run blocking department. Despite this positive, Dan Moore Jr. and Kevin Dotson seem like two starters that should be replaced for this group. Neither has developed to their potential and Dotson seems to be in the doghouse with the coaching staff.
Those two could still be the starters come next season no matter what the fans hope and pray for. Moore is still a young guy, but if an upgrade cannot be found then the coaches will be fine with him there. Finding a guard seems like a spot where the Steelers will prioritize over left tackle, especially if the draft and free agency falls a certain way.
