Steelers beef up the offensive line

In this week’s NFL Draft Notebook, I mentioned how addressing the center position is a must for the Steelers this offseason. This is due to the subpar play they saw from this spot last year. Mason Cole who was the starter the past two seasons was Pro Football Focuses worst pass-blocking center in 2023 and has already been released.

"He’s gonna set the standard with how he works. He’s extremely intelligent. From a football standpoint, for us, he was a quarterback for our offensive line. He made all our identification, in both the run game and the pass game. He has a deep understanding of making sure we get our five on their five."

WVU HC Neal Brown on Frazier

West Virginia’s Zach Frazier has the football character that screams Pittsburgh Steelers. He is a tough player who plays with a mean streak and does a great job of finishing his blocks. He also plays with great leverage which he learned during his stellar high school wrestling career which saw him be named a state champion four times and only lose two matches during his career. He is also an extremely smart player who should be able to start from day one.

In the third round, the Steelers address the offensive line with their second consecutive pick in the 2024 NFL Draft. Finding someone to replace Dan Moore Jr. should be a priority as he gave up seven sacks last year, and earned low grades most of the year. The team does have 2023 first-round pick Broderick Jones who is capable of playing either right or left tackle.

BYU’s Kingsley Suamataia is an impressive athlete who can play either tackle spot. He is coming off an impressive NFL Combine that saw the 326-pound lineman run the 40-yard dash in 5.04 seconds. He also posts impressive strength numbers bench pressing 225 pounds 31 times which was the third-best number among offensive linemen.
