Will the Steelers Offensive Line Come Together in 2012 as the Team Wants it To?

We all know that the Steelers are counting on their offensive line in 2012 to be much better than it has been in the past several years.

The club has spent some high draft choices on the line, and today PFW says that the line needs to be a stronger unit in 2012, and they question if it will be able to come together as fast as the team needs it to.

There has been plenty of focus on what changes new coordinator Todd Haley will implement on offense, as well as how well he will work with QB Ben Roethlisberger. While these are material issues, there’s no doubting that Roethlisberger’s rare passing gifts and daring style of play all but guarantee that he will put his unique stamp on the offense no matter the coordinator — though whether Haley works to implement more short, quick passing with an eye on protecting Roethlisberger from the rush is something to watch, the way we hear it. A more pressing issue, we’re told, is how a potentially new-look Steelers’ offensive line jells. Pittsburgh could have new starters at both guard spots as well as at left tackle, with rookies David DeCastro (right guard) and Mike Adams (left tackle) possible Week One starters. Building continuity upfront can take time, so let’s see how Pittsburgh fares in that regard.

Steelers RB Jonathan Dwyer Wants To Be ‘One Of The Main Guys Contributing’


Mike Wilkening of Pro Football Weekly penned a solid piece on Steelers RB Jonathan Dwyer, and what he’s up to this off-season.

From Wilkening’s accounts, Dwyer is ready to compete for an increase in playing time, something he hasn’t had much of since being chosen six picks before Pro Bowl WR/KR Antonio Brown.

Wrote Wilkening:

Entering his third NFL campaign, “you want more,” Dwyer said Thursday. “You want to be out (there) more and more and be one of the main guys that contributes on this team.”

The article also references RB Rashard Mendenhall, whom Dwyer noted was at the facility as part of his rehabilitation from an ACL tear he suffered at the end of last season.

Dwyer won’t likely compete for a starting position this year, but as he can attest to (a broken foot toward the end of the year) as well as a late-season injury to former Steelers RB Mewelde Moore, having a deep running back unit is important in the NFL.

He showed at least some potential, having scampered for a 76-yard run against Tennessee in Week 5 last season – the seventh-longest play from scrimmage in team history.

Running back figures to be a hot battle in training camp, with back-up spots behind likely starter Isaac Redman and fill-in spots while Mendenhall is out (could be through the first part of the season) are up between Dwyer, John Clay, Baron Batch and rookie Chris Rainey.
