The Pittsburgh Steelers have Expressed Interest in CFL OL Jovan Olafioye
The Pittsburgh Steelers have expressed interest in Jovan Olafioye an offensive lineman from the Canadian Football League.
Olafioye has played the last three seasons with the B.C. Lions. Olafioye was the best offensive lineman in the CFL in 2012 and is hoping to make an NFL roster in 2013.
Olafioye has the ability to play both offensive tackle positions. He went unstaffed out of North Carolina Central and signed with the Lions of the CFL.
Fifteen teams have worked out Olafioye, but according to KFFL the Steelers have interest in signing him.
The Steelers have Marcus Gilbert, Mike Adams, and Kelvin Beachum who can all play tackle, but they will lose Max Starks this off-season.
Olafioye is only 25 so he is equal to an older draft pick, but he already has three years of Pro Football experience.
He also possess tremendous size and is listed at 6’6″ and 325 pounds.
If the Steelers sign him they will have fewer holes to fill on the offensive line. Olafioye could also fight for a starting job if he is as good as advertised.
