2022 NFL Draft
CBS Sports Projects Steelers Will Draft Texas A&M OL Kenyon Green
Draft prognosticator Ryan Wilson of CBS Sports projected that the Steelers will address their offensive line in his mock draft early last week. Wilson predicted that the Steelers will use the 20th overall selection in the first round on Texas A&M offensive lineman Kenyon Green.
Green is a 6-foot-4, 324-pound lineman that played both tackle and guard for the Aggies this past season, including the left tackle spot that was vacated when the Steelers drafted Dan Moore Jr. in the fourth round this spring.
Green most likely projects to be a guard at the NFL level, though he could also possibly fit at right tackle. The Steelers’ right guard Tre Turner and right tackle Chukwuma Okorafor are both set to hit free agency in March.
Wilson had the Steelers taking Green over fellow lineman Trevor Penning and quarterbacks Carson Strong and Sam Howell.
Green was also projected to the Steelers by ESPN back in November, before the team was locked into the No. 20 overall selection.
