Adding a couple depth pieces still remains a priority for the Steelers

Offensive line (9): Broderick Jones, Dan Moore Jr., Isaac Seumalo, Mason Cole, James Daniels, Chuks Okorafor, Nate Herbig, Kendrick Green

One would have to imagine that the Steelers are going to keep their eyes peeled to improve some of the depth spots on this part of the roster. Center is particularly a weak point behind Mason Cole and the club could use a boost there. Another thing that will be monitored closely is how many starting snaps are given to which players during camp.

There are a couple of starting gigs that seem already set with the likes of Isaac Seumalo, Mason Cole, and James Daniels locking down the interior. Both tackle positions are where things could get newsworthy up in Latrobe, PA. Broderick Jones is the rookie that Pittsburgh traded up for in the draft and people are itching to see him play.

He will have to beat out Dan Moore Jr. for that job in camp, but the coaches could give him some time to sit behind a starter. Moore also has another opportunity to start at right tackle if he cannot hold onto his spot on the left side. That could spell disaster for Chuks Okorafor if Jones wins the left side and Moore dethrones him on the right.

Ideally, the Black and Gold can bring in a guy that has experience starting at center and guard to kick Kendrick Green off the roster. Right now, there are not too many options on the roster that will likely kick him off the club. If they cannot find an upgrade internally or outside the team, then you better pray that Cole stays healthy all season.
