If you are a fourth-round rookie offensive tackle, you don’t necessarily expect to be a starting left tackle right out of the gate. However, it is a role Pittsburgh Steelers offensive tackle Dan Moore Jr. has accepted and done his very best.

On Sunday, Moore had a very tough draw with Cleveland Browns edge rusher Myles Garrett. Garrett is one of the best pass rushers in the league and Pittsburgh didn’t give Moore as much help as you might have assumed but he held his own. Nevertheless, despite this, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was very happy with how Moore performed.

“I thought Dan did a great job,” Roethlisberger said. “It’s tough to ask a rookie to go against that guy, and what he did today was pretty special. I can’t say enough about the line, run game and pass pro, they are the heart of this group.”

The Steelers are on the verge of being forced to make a decision about the tackle position going forward with the return of Zach Banner. Moore hasn’t been perfect by any means but has he been worse than starting right tackle Chuks Okorafor? Let us know in the comments which guy you think Banner will replace or do both guys keep their jobs.
