PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The Steelers will be targeting a guard at some point in this year’s draft, and there are some with versatility – something the team really likes.
At the top of the list is the Rashawn Slater in the northwest. It seems like he can play any position on the line. Some scouts think he’s too young to play tackle in the NFL.

Another prospect who can play either Left Attack or Guard is USC’s Alijah Vera Tucker. Both Tucker and Slater could be available to the Steelers in the first or second round.

In the middle to late round, coach Mike Tomlin and Company identified two pairs of teammates. The Steelers were in Ohio to see Wyatt Davis and Thayer Munford.
Davis began the last two years for the Buckeyes and Munford has played since his junior year. Mumford played left attack but works as a guard on the next level.

The Steelers like Notre Dame Players and the Fighting Irish also have two guards to keep an eye on Aaron Banks and Robert Hainsey. Both purchases are big and dependable in the floor game – something the Steelers need help with.
