Depth at center and the starting tackle jobs will be the star of the show at camp

Offensive line (9): Dan Moore Jr., Broderick Jones, Isaac Seumalo, Mason Cole, James Daniels, Chuks Okorafor, Kevin Dotson, Nate Herbig, Ryan McCollum

Most will be watching closely regarding the starting tackle competition in camp, but there are other things to watch out for. The backup spots at tackle and across the interior of the offensive line could see a couple of different outcomes compared to years prior. There will be some shuffling across the trenches for Pittsburgh and that should be a good thing.

All eyes will be on the left tackle battle between Dan Moore Jr. and Broderick Jones as soon as practices start. Jones will get his fair share of snaps against the first team as the pre-season rolls on, but Moore will likely get the start. Most fans will hate the idea of Moore staying at left tackle to start the year, but the Steelers probably don't want Jones to have his first start against Nick Bosa.

If Jones can find a way to take Moore's job on the left side, it seems like Moore could challenge Chuks Okorafor for his starting spot on the right side. That would be an interesting development to watch play out. Finding answers at key depth spots could become an issue depending on how the current roster is constructed.

Backup at center will come between Kendrick Green and Ryan McCollum for now, but it seems like a position that could see an addition once teams start making cuts. Unless Nate Herbig or Kevin Dotson show some newly founded position flexibility, the backup behind Mason Cole still needs to be found. Center is an interesting position that still needs some help.
