Steelers mock draft round 4: Blake Fisher, OT, Notre Dame

Offensive tackle is a big enough need for the Steelers that I wouldn't be surprised if GMs Omar Khan and Andy Weidl elected to go that route in Round 1. While Broderick Jones certainly flashes his upside and promise at the OT position, the man opposite him has been a massive liability all year.

Dan Moore Jr. hasn't shown enough improvement in Year 3 for the team to believe that he should be the bookend OT to pair with Jones moving forward. In the same way, Chukwuma Okorafor (who was reportedly benched for disciplinary reasons), was equally as bad when he was in the lineup. The Steelers could look to get out of his pricey contract early in the offseason.

Realistically, if the Steelers wait until the fourth round to address the offensive tackle position, they probably are not getting their long-term answer. However, they could use the depth and competition at the position regardless.

Blake Fisher is a big-bodied right tackle from a school that pumps out offensive linemen like nobody's business. If he happens to work out, he could allow Jones to flip back over to his more natural position at left tackle. If the Steelers haven't taken a tackle by this point, this could be the sweet spot.
