Center continues to be the nexus of value and need for the Steelers in this CMD. Over the offseasons from 2010-2012, the Steelers rebuilt their O-Line, adding 5 starters that would form the spine of a stable and effective unit. Thanks to that transition, Ben went from a scrappy competitor being sacked 40-50 times a season to an average of 26 sacks a season since and 4 straight Pro Bowls from 2014-2017. Center Maurkice Pouncey and Guard David DeCastro are the lone holdouts from this 2010-2012 group. They need to execute a similar rebuild to extend Ben's career as much as possible and lay the groundwork for a successful transition.

Last season, Pouncey's performance slipped a bit and the Steelers have no young depth at Center. While other teams might debate who goes on their Mount Rushmore, Steeler fans can talk about who belongs on the Mount Rushmore just for centers. Ray Mansfield, Mike Webster, Dermontti Dawson, and Pouncey defined excellence for this team with a combined 26 All-Pro seasons. The team values the position and is accustomed to a high level of play.

Humphrey is an NFL-ready, proven commodity and should be at a premium in this draft cycle. He's an intelligent team leader with a powerful body and the coveted wrestling background. Check out the entire roster of picks at the Steelers Team Page!

STEELERS HISTORICAL DRAFT PICKS

Reach/Value (R/V) Explained
The difference between where a player is selected in the NFL draft versus where the player was listed on the final Drafttek Big Board for the season in question.
Example: A player who was listed at #50 on the Big Board and was selected at #35 will be a "Reach" of -15. Alternately, a player listed at #35 on the Big Board who was selected at #50 is a +15 "Value".

Simply put: a positive number is a Value pick, a negative number is a Reach.
