Pittsburgh Steelers Minicamp: First Team Reps Likely Coming Soon For David DeCastro, Mike Adams

The Pittsburgh Steelers were trying out different looks for their offensive line as the team opened it minicamp on Tuesday. According to reports from the scene, a pair of new faces were on the outside at the tackle positions as the team took the field this week.

Veteran tackle Trai Essex started on the right side in workouts. On the left side was Marcus Gilbert. In the middle it was Maurkice Pouncey at center, Willie Colon at left guard and Ramon Foster at right guard. The look of the offensive line could still, and likely will, change in the days ahead.

Watching the first team take reps were a pair of highly-touted rookies. First-round pick David DeCastro was not working with the starters, and second-round pick Mike Adams was out of the mix as well. That will likely change. DeCastro and Adams will both be rotated into the mix with the first team as minicamp continues.

Players are not allowed to make contact or practice in pads during minicamp and OTAs, so this spring's work is mostly just a walk-through for linemen.
