The Pittsburgh Steelers could look to address offensive tackle in the first round of the 2024 NFL Draft. Many have predicted that it would come to fruition, but one player is starting to be mocked even more than before. Georgia tackle Amarius Mims is becoming quite the popular pick for Pittsburgh to land. Bucky Brooks predicted him to the Steelers in his first mock draft.
“A commitment to retool the offense could prompt the Steelers to add a massive blocker to the lineup. Mims’ size, athleticism and movement skills make him an intriguing option for a team that excels in player development,” Brooks wrote.
He’s not the first person to do that, either. Daniel Jeremiah had the team landing Mims in the first-round just days ago, and it does make sense to try and reinforce the offensive line when it appears to be rounding the corner, aside from two spots.
“The Steelers go back to Georgia after selecting Broderick Jones and Darnell Washington last year. Mims would pair with Jones as the team’s starting offensive tackles,” Jeremiah said.
If this pick happens, that is the Steelers rebuilding their offensive line, hopefully once and for all. It would give whoever is the quarterback some much-needed protection, and while Mims does not have a ton of tape on him, largely due to injuries, the tape that is out there is impressive. And he would already have some built-in chemistry with the group.
