The Pittsburgh Steelers utilized their second fourth-round pick to address the offensive line, selecting Kevin Dotson. Dotson earned AP All-American honors last season playing offensive guard for Louisiana. 

With departures such as Ramon Foster and B.J. Finney, the Steelers headed into the 2020 NFL Draft with a need for depth in the interior. The team signed Stefen Wisniewski in free agency, and now have Dotson in the mix.

After selecting Anthony McFarland, the needs for Pittsburgh came down to safety, offensive line and interior linemen. The Steelers offensive line is getting no younger, and the starting guard spot opposite of David DeCastro is still up for grabs. Will they move Matt Feiler inside? Do they trust Wisniewski? Those questions remain to be answered, but the Steelers sured up depth in a position that needed it. Dotson isn't likely to start right away, but Dotson is a fundamentally strong linemen that could only benefit from being around the likes of Maurkice Pouncey and David DeCastro.
