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. May 18 - 6:32 PM

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.
