2024 NFL Mock Draft

Selection Comment - Pick #20

Return to Mock Draft

Pittsburgh
Troy Fautanu
20

Washington

OT



Of their 30 pre-draft visits, the Steelers spent 14 on O-linemen. A deep class for Tackle, a position of premium value, the Steelers took advantage to get a player that might be a top-15 in a typical class. Fautanu is a tenacious blocker with active hands who will help re-establish the running game in Pittsburgh, a key objective of new OC Arthur Smith. He doesn't have elite height but has an excellent wingspan with 34.5" arms to play on the edge.

Incumbent LT Dan Moore Jr. has reached his ceiling as a middling NFL tackle. The team would like to move Broderick Jones to LT and plug the rookie in on the right side.

The Steelers still have some big holes in their roster at WR and Center. This pick will lose some luster if they can't get a Center soon. Expect them to be active on Day 2 to maneuver into position to address those needs. Grade: A
