4 reasons to like Daniel McCullers

Posted May 10, 2014

For fans who love size, sixth-round pick Daniel McCullers is the guy for you

Why you should be excited about Daniel McCullers:

 

* He’s a two-down run-stuffer who, at 6-foot-7 and 352 pounds, is very difficult to move when he plays with leverage.

 

* Defensive line coach John Mitchell sees McCullers as providing for the Steelers “some flexibility,” due to a perceived ability to “play outside (at defensive end) or inside (at nose tackle).”  Mitchell said the plan is to have McCullers work inside initially.

 

* He blocked two kicks in 22 games at Tennessee.

 

* He registered 33 tackles (21 solo), a half sack and 4.5 tackles for loss while playing defensive tackle in 2013.
