6 offensive linemen Steelers should be enthralled with after Senior Bowl
The Pittsburgh Steelers got a good look at the offensive linemen at the Senior Bowl, and they should have come away very impressed by these NFL Draft prospects.
In past years, Pittsburgh Steelers fans have fallen in love with some impressive prospects who participated in Senior Bowl week in Mobile, Alabama. In 2021, football fans everywhere were infatuated by how dominant Creed Humphrey was in OL vs DL drills, and Quinn Meinerz emerged as one of the most impressive players of the week. In 2022, it was OG Zion Johnson who really impressed among others.
While the top three offensive line prospects this year are all underclassmen, there was an impressive group of offensive linemen at Senior Bowl week this year, and Pittsburgh’s brass better have taken notice. Here are six OL prospects the Steelers should be enthralled with after watching them perform at the Senior Bowl.
1. Steelers should target Florida OG O’Cyrus Torrence
O’Cyrus Torrence was one of the biggest names at the Senior Bowl in 2023, and he didn’t disappoint. At Florida this past season, Torrence graded out as the best guard in the nation, according to Pro Football Focus. It’s not hard to see why.
Torrence is the total package thanks to his impressive size (6’4 3/4”, 377 lbs, 84” wingspan), athletic traits, and well-rounded skillset. While his feet have a tendency to get a bit lazy at times in pass protection, foot quickness isn’t an issue, and looked outstanding in OL vs DL drills — rarely losing a rep all week.
Unfortunately, his strong performance may have played him out of contention for Pittsburgh’s top pick in the second round, as there’s a good chance he’s gone before that point now. If the Steelers really interested in Torrence (and they should be), they might want to consider trading back in the first round — something assistant GM Andy Weidl is very familiar with doing during his time with the Eagles.
