Notre Dame offensive tackle Liam Eichenberg revealed during his media session today that he's met with the Steelers once, according to Nick Farabaugh of Steelers Now. Eichenberg also expects the Steelers to be at the Notre Dame pro day on Wednesday.

Per Farabaugh, Eichenberg also said that the Steelers are a "great team and great organization" and it would be a "great opportunity" to play with them.


Eichenberg was first-team All-ACC in 2020 and is projected to be a plug-and-play starting left tackle in the NFL. Eichenberg should be drafted early in the second round.


Below is a scouting report on Eichenberg by The Draft Network.


"Liam Eichenberg is an NFL-ready starting left tackle who should find assimilating to the pro game fairly easy. Eichenberg isn’t the most fleet of foot and speed rushers with wide angles can test him off the edge, but sound fundamentals and footwork should have him positioned to contest such challenges with a fair amount of success. The ceiling for Eichenberg as a prospect is tied to the offensive philosophies of his future coach. He is best when releasing vertically at the snap in the run game and either double-teaming to the second level or stepping down to collapse and create a soft edge. Gap/power teams will unleash his power at the point of attack effectively and he’ll do well to create creases as guards pull or tight ends insert to lead the ball carrier through his gap. In all, Eichenberg is a part of a talented crop of 2021 offensive tackles and his ultimate place in the pecking order will come down to team preferences. He’s more impactful in the run game than he is in pass protection, but he was rather smooth protecting one of college football’s most unpredictable quarterbacks this past season, too."
