Steelers’ O-Line Coach Talks About His Rookies

PITTSBURGH (93-7 The Fan) – The Steelers used their first two draft picks on offensive linemen this year, and it appears that both will be starters as rookies.

On Monday, the Fan Morning Show spoke to Offensive Line Coach Sean Kugler about David DeCastro, and Mike Adams.

Sean tells us that the most important thing is to get the rookies caught up on the terminology before anything else because their capabilities will take over, but mentally they have to be ready.

Of the two rookies Kugler tells us that Adams will have a more difficult transition from college to the pros because of the athletes he will be facing on the defensive line.

For a complete report on the entire offensive line, listen to the interview below:

Steelers rookies settling in after whirlwind week


*** Discuss this article and more at our Pittsburgh Steelers forum ***


A week ago, Mike Adams was waiting for his phone to ring. On Friday the former Ohio State star walked onto the Pittsburgh Steelers practice field as a professional football player.

The second-round draft pick joined 39 other rookies for the start of a three-day minicamp. Adams says he missed playing football but comes into camp with low expectations. He will likely work as a backup tackle when training camp opens in July.

Expectations are a bit higher for first round pick David DeCastro out of Stanford. The All-American guard will likely get a chance to prove he can start right away. DeCastro isn't shying away from the attention. He chose to wear No. 66 with the Steelers, the same number worn by Alan Faneca, a six-time All-Pro in Pittsburgh.

Baron Batch unable to practice with Steelers rookies

The Steelers are holding a rookie minicamp over the weekend.  Baron Batch was expected to attend but will be unable to due to his knee injury.  Batch was cleared to practice back in March but may have encountered a set back in his recovery.  Batch is 9 months out from his surgery and still is not completely healed.
This could be bad news looking forward to Rashard Mendenhall being able to play this season.  Not everyone recovers the same way but Batch has been working hard and still is not able to go.  Mendenhall will most likely have to start the season on the PUP.  He will not play until the middle of the season if he plays at all.
