Pay attention to how the Steelers show interest in Offensive linemen

It seems more likely that the Steelers will invest another high selection into their offensive line in the upcoming draft. If they make enough cap space available, then they could always add to the trenches during free agency too. They have to add a center and right tackle to finish their rebuild of the offensive line once and for all.

Mason Cole was just let go, which was somewhat surprising since he was their starting center for the past two years. There is a giant hole at the position and the club will be looking at free agency and the draft to add there. Chuks Okorafor is also gone, and fans are demanding that Broderick Jones move back over to left tackle. That can only happen if the Steelers find an upgrade at right tackle.

Pittsburgh may use two higher-end picks on center and right tackle when the draft finally comes around. Omar Khan wants to finish building this offensive line group once and for all. There are plenty of quality offensive linemen coming out of this draft class. Some of them are great fits for what they are searching for.

They want size and athleticism both at center and tackle. Some names to keep an eye on this week with plenty of rumors about the Steelers are Jackson Powers-Johnson, Tyler Guyton, Zach Frazier, and Armarius Mims. Each one of those names could be a top pick by the Steelers in the upcoming draft. Each one will have varying degrees of participation this week, but Pittsburgh will show interest.
