The Pittsburgh Steelers’ offensive line came in at No. 12 in Pro Football Focus’ rankings of all 32 NFL offensive lines for the 2023 season.
“Pittsburgh started the same five linemen in every game last season but changed two of the starters this offseason with the additions of Isaac Seumalo in free agency and Broderick Jones in the draft. Pittsburgh’s line ranked seventh in PFF pass-blocking efficiency (in 2022) but was significantly worse as a run-blocking unit,” Sam Monson of PFF wrote. “There is no clear-cut standout from this group, but the best player probably comes down to either guard — incumbent James Daniels or new acquisition Seumalo.”
NFL Network analyst Brian Baldinger was checking out the Steelers’ offensive line at mandatory minicamp on Tuesday. Baldinger thinks the O-line is the key to the Steelers success in 2023.
