Last season, many of the problems with the Pittsburgh Steelers offense centered around inconsistent play by the offensive line. Rookie running back Najee Harris finished fourth in the league in rushing yards but nothing came easy and his yards per carry was near the bottom of the league.

This offseason, Pittsburgh signed a pair of free agents, Mason Cole and James Daniels, both of which should start and be upgrades on the interior offensive line.

But this wasn’t enough to impress Mike Renner of Pro Football Focus. He ranked all 32 offensive lines and he has the Steelers unit at No. 30. Only the Chicago Bears and Seattle Seahawks trail them.

In other AFC North news, the Cleveland Browns are No. 2, the Cincinnati Bengals No. 8 and the Baltimore Ravens are No. 17.

Pittsburgh did nothing to address the offensive tackle position this offseason despite having plenty of salary-cap space. With a new starting quarterback set to take over, not upgrading either side could prove to be a problem with a new signal-caller under center.

Let us know in the comments if you agree with these rankings and tell us if you think the Steelers did this offseason to fix the problems on the offensive line.
