FOX Sports' Mike Garafolo reports the Steelers have begun long-term talks with LT Kelvin Beachum, but aren't yet progressing toward a deal.
The No. 248 pick of the 2012 draft, Beachum broke out last season, grading out as Pro Football Focus' No. 5 overall tackle. Beachum is currently scheduled to make just $1.542 million in the final year of his rookie deal. He's a tough contract case with only one above-average year under his belt, but almost certainly someone the Steelers will pay to keep. Pittsburgh has craved stability along its offensive line for years and finally has it with all five starters returning. Jul 25 - 10:09 AM

The Steelers have yet to open long-term talks with contract-year LT Kelvin Beachum.

Beachum has made 28 consecutive starts since taking over for Mike Adams. He played every snap last year, grading out as a top-five tackle by PFF. 26-year-old Beachum is due $1.54 million in the final year of his rookie deal.

The Steelers would like to extend LT Kelvin Beachum's contract.

Pro Football Focus ranked Beachum fifth among tackles last season. He provided elite pass protection while grading out as an above average run blocker. Scheduled for just a $1.542 million salary, Beachum is due for a raise. If Pittsburgh doesn't extend Beachum, his contract will expire at the end of 2015.

The Steelers are "happy" with Kelvin Beachum as their starting left tackle.

Beachum is significantly undersized for an NFL left tackle at 6-foot-3, 303 with 33 1/4-inch arms, but wins with technique and leverage. Beachum made 11 starts at left tackle in 2013, earning positive marks from Pro Football Focus in pass protection. He was a liability in the running game. From left to right, this is the Steelers' O-Line: LT Beachum, LG Ramon Foster, C Maurkice Pouncey, RG David DeCastro, RT Marcus Gilbert. Mike Adams is the swing tackle.

Kelvin Beachum is considered the favorite to enter 2014 as the Steelers' starting left tackle.

Per the Steelers' official website, "there's strong evidence" Beachum will be Ben Roethlisberger's blindside protector "beyond 2014, as well." Beachum, a 2012 seventh-round pick, can play any of the five positions on the offensive line. He was the 2013 Week 1 starter at center before starting 11 games at left tackle. Beachum received solid pass-blocking marks from Pro Football Focus.

The Steelers are giving second-year OL Kelvin Beachum some reps at center.

Beachum obviously isn't an option to start ahead of Maurkice Pouncey, but it's an opportunity for last year's seventh-round pick to improve his versatility. Beachum started five games at right tackle last season, and he can also play guard. The Steelers let backup center Doug Legursky go in free agency.

Rookie seventh-rounder Kelvin Beachum will start at right tackle at Baltimore with Mike Adams (ankle) out in Week 13.

It's another reason not to rush Ben Roethlisberger back with limited range of motion. Beachum is severely undersized (6'2/303) for an NFL tackle, and Ravens DE Paul Kruger owned Adams in the previous matchup.

Steelers GM Kevin Colbert listed G Kelvin Beachum and TE Leonard Pope as standouts from offseason practices.

Beachum, a seventh-round pick in April, is versatile enough that he will eventually be able to play all five O-Line positions. He'll compete for a primary backup job in his rookie season. Pope, 28, is the favorite to back up Heath Miller.

Steelers signed No. 248 overall pick OG Kelvin Beachum to a four-year contract.

Beachum has size (6'2/303) and strength deficiencies, but he's athletic with above-average body control and quickness. On the Board of Trustees as an SMU student, Beachum got high marks from the Steelers for his intelligence and moxie. The coaching staff will try to convert him to guard after playing the blindside with the Mustangs.

Steelers selected SMU OL Kelvin Beachum with the No. 248 overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft.

Beachum played tackle at SMU, but he's going to have to move inside for the Steelers at just 6'2" and just over 300 pounds. Beachum does have the athleticism and skill to pull and get to the second level, so he could develop into an interior swing player in Pittsburgh.
