We all tend to have a pretty high opinion of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ offensive line around here, and it is certainly not without reason. For starters, they have a pair of first-round draft picks up front, and another from the second round, so they have the pedigree. They just sent three linemen to the Pro Bowl, and two of them have been first-team All-Pros, either currently or in the recent past. Those are some solid bona fides.
It is fair to wonder, however, just how great the offensive line really is. For starters, they are a better pass-protecting unit than they are a run-blocking one.
