Depth at center and interior offensive line could use a boost in Pittsburgh
Trying to find quality depth across the offensive line is no easy task, but it is getting tougher nowadays. For one reason or another offensive line play seems to be getting sloppier across the entire league. The Steelers might have one of the top units in the NFL this year, but they seem to struggle at different points.
Mason Cole is the top center, and he should be installed there for the entire season barring injury. Nate Herbig will probably be the immediate choice for backup guard and center if injuries start to happen. The center spot for Herbig is new and the club would be foolish to not search for an upgrade behind Cole for that center spot.
With Kendrick Green being traded to the Texans earlier today, the interior offensive line depth is getting thin. There are a couple of center and guard options that could make a lot of sense if they were to become available via trade or their release. Logan Bruss is an interesting option as he can play either guard or tackle if the need is there.
A couple of top choices at center that would make sense if they get released by their current employer would be Jimmy Morrissey or Pat Elflein. Both have a lot of experience at center and could play guard too. Another name that was recently dropped by Mark Kaboly is Michael Dunn, who would be a good backup guard for the Steelers.
