The Pittsburgh Steelers are finishing their third week of organized team activities on Thursday before Manditory minicamp next week. With the workouts being volunteer, and the NFLPA encouraging players to not participate, exactly who and how many players showing up for the Steelers each day remains to be seen.
With limited access to information during these workouts, we here at Behind The Steel Curtain are doing our best to compile the information into one spot as to what is going on at the UPMC Rooney Sports Complex as the Steelers begin their on-field preparation for the 2021 season. Below is a compilation of information from various Steelers beat reporters who have limited attendance during the workouts. Information will come in chronological order from top to bottom to the best of our ability.
Chuks Okorafor said after today's OTA session even though he is taking snaps as the 'starting' left tackle he still has to earn the job. He also said he and @ZBNFL are pushing each other this year, just like last year, even though they are now competing on opposite sides.— Teresa Varley (@Teresa_Varley) June 10, 2021
Asked to explain some of the schematic or technique differences from last year to this year for the Steelers OL, Chuks Okorafor stresses that it's all about "attack, attack, attack" whether they're running inside zone, outside zone or gap blocking.— Brian Batko (@BrianBatko) June 10, 2021
Steelers move to Heinz Field next week for minicamp, so this is the last time we’ll get a view this good of the running back drills. pic.twitter.com/Or1ki3iZeX— Brooke Pryor (@bepryor) June 10, 2021
Steelers OTAs are now complete and minicamp will start on Tuesday. What better time than now for a Steelers Mailbag?— Mark Kaboly (@MarkKaboly) June 10, 2021
