    Mike Tomlin attends pro day workout of OT Taylor Lewan

    Mike Tomlin attends pro day workout of OT Taylor Lewan

    By Neal Coolong on Mar 15 2014



    After having been seen at Michigan State's pro day, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin returned the favor to Michigan, along with offensive line coach Mike Munchak to watch, among others, Taylor Lewan.

    The notion of taking an offensive tackle with the 15th overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft isn't extinguished quite yet.

    It may just be a burning ember, but Steelers coach Mike Tomlin, along with offensive line coach Mike Munchak, were in Ann Arbor, Mich., this week to watch the Wolverines' pro day, which included top 15 prospect Taylor Lewan.

    Lewan had a fantastic Combine, eliminating any questions about his athleticism - initially there were some concerns, but Lewan did enough to establish himself firmly as a top half of the first round pick.

    Lewan may not be available at 15 (probably won't be, judging by most projections) but it's worth the Steelers doing their due diligence anyway. Considering the kind of zone running Munchak has employed in the past, both he and Tomlin have to love his strength and quickness.

    The Steelers got solid production over the second half of the season from left tackle Kelvin Beachum and right tackle Marcus Gilbert - who is in a contract year. Tackle isn't expected to be a priority early in the draft.

    Interesting...Mike Tomlin and Co. have attended Pro Day of all the top OT...

    OT in Rd 1 is not out of question. It seems Munchak is not convinced that Adams or Gilbert can play LT.

    I think Lewan can play...not sure about his off field issues.

    Left tackle is the most overrated and overvalued position on a football field.

    Big Ben disagrees.

    Big ben struggled when Jonathan Scott and Mike Adams were starters.

    I believe you are very wrong. Lewan at best will be an average RT.
