Offensive line and outside linebacker are both pressing offseason needs for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Outside linebacker Bud Dupree could exit in free agency and the offensive line is aging and needs an upgrade. The Steelers are looking at two players from Boise State that could fill both spots.
According to Draft Wire writer Justin Mello, Pittsburgh is planning to have private visits with offensive tackle Ezara Cleveland and edge rusher Curtis Weaver.
Cleveland is an interesting developmental prospect. He’s athletic and light on his feet but is very raw in terms of technique and needs to get some quality time in an NFL strength program to stand up to massive 3-4 defensive lineman in the league.
Weaver is a big, strong edge defense who might want to slim down a bit to help with his flexibility and bend. But his technical tools are elite, especially his hand usage and football IQ.
