The Pittsburgh Steelers used their second sixth round pick to build (potential) depth at one of the thinnest spots on their roster when they selected defensive tackle Dan McCullers of Tennessee. It is not known immediately where the Steelers will use McCullers, but his 6’6” and 352 pound frame would seem to suggest that he’d be a nose tackle.
- Per ESPN, McCullers recorded 33 tackles and a half sack for the Volunteers in 2013.
It would see that if Emmanuel Kant had lived in 2014, his phislsophical peral of wisdom would be “I have a YouTube video highlight package therefore I am,” and in that light McCullers certainly qualifies:
McCullers joins a position area which in the space of a few years has gone to being one of the Steelers oldest to one of the youngest. The average age of the Steelers defensive line in the Debacle vs. Baltimore on opening day 2011 was 34, with Brett Keisel as the youngster at age 33.
