The Steelers make a few shocking moves on the offensive line

Offensive line (9): Dan Moore Jr., Broderick Jones, Isaac Seumalo, Nate Herbig, Mason Cole, Veteran backup center, Kendrick Green, Chuks Okorafor, Le'Raven Clark

It has been announced that Dan Moore Jr. will get the start at left tackle to open training camp. Broderick Jones will have to earn his way onto the field and overtake Moore as the starter on the left side. It will be a battle that many fans will be invested in. Isaac Seumalo and James Daniels will be the two starting guards along the offensive line.

Another interesting tidbit coming out of camp recently is that Seumalo and Daniels could be backup options at center if no one else emerges. Chuks Okorafor rounds out the starting bunch at right tackle, but his spot could come into question if Moore cannot hold off Jones. That would be a great theatre to watch play out.

Battles for the remaining openings on the roster for offensive linemen will come in the trenches. Center seems to be thin and the news about Seumalo or Daniels potentially becoming the primary backups is concerning. It seems like a veteran backup could be the best course of action for the Steelers after each team trims their roster from 90 to 53.

Nate Herbig is going to make the club as the primary backup at guard and Le'Raven Clark adds some extra depth at tackle. Perhaps the biggest surprise would be Kendrick Green doing enough for coaches to keep him around for another year. He makes the team over Kevin Dotson as he seems to be unhappy in Pittsburgh.
