The long-term answer at Right tackle for the Steelers might be Tyler Guyton

Tackle is a strong area of this draft class. There could be plenty selected on night one and a barrage more on day two of the event later this spring. Plenty of quality tackles were at the Senior Bowl trying to impress the scouts in attendance. The Steelers kept a close eye on the offensive line, but right tackle is another pressing need they have to fill this offseason.

Chuks Okorafor will either be traded or cut this offseason since Tomlin openly benched him for questioning his decisions. That should save Pittsburgh in cap savings and allow for Broderick Jones to become a full-time starter. The issue is that Jones is more comfortable on the left side, but they can't accommodate that until they find a reasonable starter at right tackle.

Getting an upgrade at the draft seems to be the most logical choice. It's possible the Steelers could find one on day two of the draft, but the position could be in play in round one. That would be back-to-back first-round picks at tackle. No fan would dare complain about it as they have seen enough poor offensive line play over the past handful of years.

Tyler Guyton is a guy that could be worthy of that first-round selection. He brings great size and would fit what Arthur Smith will try and bring to the Steeler's new offense. Guyton had a dominant week at the Senior Bowl and showed his toughness in different reps. He should remind many of Jones coming out of the draft last year, but Guyton is solely a right tackle option.
