Steelers could land the top interior lineman

While I highly doubt the Steelers go after a significant interior lineman after adding two starters there last season, if they do, they need to go all out. Kevin Dotson is a very hot and cold starter, and it would make more sense on paper to add a rookie there to compete and push Dotson. If you go the veteran route, they need to be brought in as the clear starter.

The top prize along the interior this offseason is Nate Davis. The former third-round pick has quietly established himself as one of the best-ascending guards in the league. He has the size to maul people, the athleticism to move and block in space, and he is a capable run and pass blocker along the interior.

Do I ultimately think Davis, or really any top guard ends up signing with the Steelers? No, but if that is the free agent route they go, they need to target a top name. Davis, to me, is that. He can still ascend higher given his age and position, and he has already proven himself as a quality blocker.
