For the first time that I can really remember the Steelers were going into a draft without having a big needs all along the offensive line.
Not only are the Steelers set across the line as far as their starting line but they have some solid backup options like Mike Adams (assuming Gilbert starts) and Cody Wallace.
That being said, I expected the Steelers to probably grab a late round project somewhere along to OL, if nothing else to give Mike Munchak someone that is one of “his guys.”
I’ll admit I didn’t pay much attention to offensive lineman in the pre-draft process, but have done some research since taking Johnson, and I came away really impressed.
Immediately when watching Wesley I thought, that’s Kelvin Beachum.
I’m not sure if people have noticed in my write ups yet but I have a huge fan crush on Beachum, so that’s high praise coming from me.
Wesley Johnson has a lot of the intangibles you want.
I talked about how run defense is a priority for Steelers cornerbacks yesterday… ...
