Shaun Sarrett On Chukwuma Okorafor: ‘He Took A Hold Of’ RT Position

Halfway through the seasons, it’s almost hard to remember that the Pittsburgh Steelers are actually technically on their second-string right tackle. That is in part because they did not enter training camp with a settled starter at the position, but Zach Banner did win the competition and started in the opener before suffering a season-ending ACL injury late in the opening game.

Chumwuka Okorafor has played (almost) every snap since then, starting the past seven games, and the line as a whole hasn’t really missed a beat. He competed with Matt Feiler to start at right tackle last year as well and lost, but he appears to have settled in over the past two months.
