Adding a center could be a top priority for the Steelers in this draft

Mason Cole is the current starting center for the Steelers heading into the 2023 campaign. His contract does expire after this season concludes, so there is a real possibility that this team enters the offseason without a starter at that spot. Cole could also be re-signed so there are a lot of things that could happen at the anchor spot of the offensive line between now and the 2024 NFL draft.

James Daniels is another player that could take over the center duties after this year as he has prior experience there. One should imagine that the Steelers will investigate adding a center through the draft after they spent countless time scouting the position this time around. They were not able to add to the interior of the offensive line through the draft besides a late seventh round pick plus an undrafted free agent signing.

One center that could be an interesting option is Sedrick Van Pran out of Georgia. Another Bulldog on the black and gold would be an interesting case to watch unfold. It is more likely than not that Van Pran would have been one of the top centers in this class if he left college this year. He returns as a top center prospect with hopes of becoming a first round pick, which is becoming less common for the position.
