The Pittsburgh Steelers have had a quiet weekend as they prepare to wrap up their OTAs this week. With the additional salary cap space heading their way, it will be interesting to watch to see if they reach extensions with any of the players currently under contract. If they were, cornerback Cortez Allen or center Maurkice Pouncey would make a lot of sense.

 Of course, with future salary cap considerations, clouding the offensive line make up, the Steelers have added some offensive linemen to the fold to boost competition. In the draft, they added tackle Wesley Johnson and to this point, they have added three undrafted rookie free agents. The latest addition is Mississippi offensive tackle Emmanuel McCray.

McCray projects as an interior offensive lineman. At 6-4, 324-pounds he is quick off the ball and has some explosion in the run game. A wide body, he has an underrated skill set and plays better on game day than his measurable may indicate. He does need some technique work and time in the weight room, but has the potential to develop into a serviceable lineman.
