2023 NFL Draft

Senior Bowl Takeaways: Steelers Find Plenty of Good Lineman in Draft (+)



Senior Bowl

MOBILE, Ala — Not everything in Mobile is easy for college players, but the Senior Bowl provides them a unique opportunity to improve their draft stock prior to the NFL Combine in Indianapolis. So, who stood out in a big way for coaches throughout the entire week?

Steelers Watch Linemen, and Find Good Ones

The instant reaction I had to this group down in Mobile is that the offensive linemen were impressive. Seriously, you didn’t have Broderick Jones, Peter Skoronski, or Paris Johnson down here, but between O’Cyrus Torrence, Dawand Jones, John Michael Schmitz, Darnell Wright, Matthew Bergeron, Steve Avila, Cody Mauch, and Tyler Steen, this Senior Bowl crop was not just deep, but gave the Steelers a sneak peak at who they could get at 32 and 49 in spades.

Mike Tomlin had his eyes glued to the offensive and defensive lines all week. The defensive line appeared a little rawer in the pass rush department, but I thought they did some great things up front in the run game. Keeanu Benton, Ade Adebawore, Byron Young, and others stood out on the interior line. The trench group should be good this year, so the Steelers should feel lucky.
