Pittsburgh Steelers Select OT Jerald Hawkins In Fourth Round

The Pittsburgh Steelers have selected LSU offensive tackle Jerald Hawkins in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft.

Hawkins weighed in at 6’5/5 309 pounds with 34 1/4 inch arms. He was a 37 game starter for the Tigers. 25 starts at right tackle and 12 on the left. He was one of two tackles brought in for a pre-drat visit. He’ll look to compete with Ryan Harris for the #3 OT spot. There may also be a chance Hawkins is moved inside to guard. Stay tuned with Steelers Depot for comments from Mike Munchak, who should provide clarity on the Steelers’ plan.
