SCB Steelers’ Quick Hitters: The “Tackle Turnstile” Edition

Good Wednesday to You Steelers’ Fans!

One of the things that I believe has gotten lost in all of the discussion over lack of an inside linebacker being drafted or the logjam at safety is the fact that the Steelers have invested a lot in their offensive tackles. To be as simple as I can, the Steelers are solid at left tackle with Alejandro Villanueva who signed a new deal last season and at right tackle where Marcus Gilbert is in the midst of his five-year, $30.8 million deal. With Chris Hubbard off to Cleveland in free agency, that means the important “swing” tackle position likely falls to former fourth round pick Jerald Hawkins.
