The Pittsburgh Steelers are keeping a close eye on the Senior Bowl as one of their top picks could be participating in the All-star event.

Watch out for the Steelers as they start to display some of their intentions at this juncture of the offseason when it comes to their draft targets. It should be music to the fans’ intuitive ears as the club seems to be paying close attention to the trenches this time around as Mike Tomlin has a front-row seat.

Omar Khan is also in attendance at the Senior Bowl as he and Tomlin start their first pre-draft process together. Things could be different this time around as Kevin Colbert will not be leading the draft process like in years past. There are plenty of good talents at this event and Pittsburgh could use one of their upcoming selections on one of them.

Steelers could talk themselves into drafting a guard in the first round

Many have been impressed by O’Cyrus Torrence during the festivities down in Mobile, Alabama. The guard out of Florida has been projected as an early day two pick heading into this event, but that has seemed to elevate since the Senior Bowl began. Zion Johnson had similar things happen to him last year and that got him selected 17th overall by the LA Chargers in the 2022 NFL Draft.

Oddly enough, the Steelers hold pick 17 in the first round of this draft, and history could repeat itself. Kevin Dotson has not improved to the point where the black and gold feel comfortable moving forward with him as the only option as a starter at left guard. Taking Torrence should allow this team to solidify the left guard spot on their offensive line for years to come.
