Isaac Seumalo was sneaky-good in the second half of 2023

Here's a name you might not have thought about. At the beginning of the season, many fans were wondering if Omar Khan had made a terrible mistake by throwing money at the veteran offensive guard. But late in the year, Isaac Seumalo was playing like one of the best interior offensive linemen in football.

Seumalo clearly seemed more comfortable as the season went on, and his play greatly improved on film. Pro Football Focus backs this up. Seumalo not only graded out as a top 15 player at his position, but he was also one of the highest-graded guards since Week 13.

This shouldn't be totally shocking. While Seumalo never earned a Pro Bowl in his first seven seasons with the Eagles, it doesn't mean that he wasn't deserving. Much of this has to do with the fact that he has only been healthy enough to play for a full season twice in his career (this will be the third time).

It's hard to argue against the deserving names who made the Pro Bowl at the guard position in the AFC, but Seumalo continues to be one of the more underrated offensive linemen in the NFL. He has quickly become the most consistent OL on the Pittsburgh Steelers, and every fan should be very pleased with this excellent signing during the 2023 offseason.
