Versatility Defines The Steelers Offensive Line Rookies

If anything, Omar Khan's pre-draft press conference revealed the type of offensive linemen he wanted on his team.

In this year's draft class, the Pittsburgh Steelers selected three linemen, all of whom have experience in different positions on the offensive line. Troy Fautanu, their first-round pick, took snaps at both left tackle and left guard. Their second-round pick, Zach Frazier, played both guard and center during his time with West Virginia. In the case of Mason McCormick, their fourth-round pick, he possesses a healthy amount of experience at both guard and center.

The Steelers desire for versatility extended to Treylen Brown, who was invited for a minicamp tryout. Though he was primarily a center during his career at Jacksonville State, Brown also made four starts at right guard as a sophomore and one start as a left tackle at the beginning of his junior year before switching to center.

Having good depth will be crucial for the Steelers, particularly in the later stages of the season when injuries usually start to pile up. Khan and assistant general manager Andy Weidl have done a good job of providing their offensive line with solid options that could help them remain competitive in the trenches.
