Steelers stay aggressive by adding some physical offensive lineman with their first two picks
Three picks have gone by since the trade back and the Steelers are back on the clock. Plenty of good options are still available for the black and gold to choose from. They settle on a different route than usual and take Kingsley Suamataia out of BYU. He is a material at right tackle and instantly upgrades the Steelers front.
Chuks Okorafor will likely be gone as a cap casualty. Ideally, Pittsburgh wants Broderick Jones at right tackle, and another option to be the starter on the right side. This would slide Dan Moore Jr. into a backup role. It would be an instant upgrade at tackle for this team and boost the offensive line. They end up investing a first round pick into both tackle positions in back-to-back years.
Seems a little early here for Zach Frazier at the moment. He will probably rank as the third-best center option in the draft when it is all said and done. Both Jackson Powers-Johnson and Sedrick Van Pran are gone by this pick. The Steelers stick to their gut and take Frazier. He should be able to fit right into what Pittsburgh wants to accomplish as an anchor to their offensive line.
He should come in and challenge Mason Cole for the starting center job on day one. Frazier is a tough prospect coming out of West Virginia, and the Steelers will like that local connection. Frazier should be someone on the rise as the draft process plays out. He is currently projected as a potential third-round option, but the Steelers worry about missing out and take him here.
