The Steelers recently hired Adrian Klemm to run the offensive line going forward. He has not been an offensive line coach in the NFL but is getting tons of good reviews from his former players. He was the assistant to Shaun Sarrett for 2 years. Klemm also helped develop Kevin Dotson during the 2020 season. Another player Klemm has helped develop is Kelvin Beachum. Long time Steeler fans will remember he played for the Steelers from 2012-2015. He was a seventh-round draft pick by the Steelers in the 2012 NFL Draft.
Pro Football Focus predicts the Steelers will sign Kelvin Beachum in the offseason to a $4.5 million dollar contract in the offseason. PFF has Beachum ranked as the No. 75 offensive tackle in the NFL currently. Beachum also says he wouldn't be in the NFL if it wasn't for Adrian Klemm. Klemm coaches Beachum on the offensive line in college at SMU so they have strong ties together.
Kelvin Beachum on Adrian Klemm: “I wouldn’t be in the NFL if it wasn’t for Adrian Klemm," said Beachum. I still call him to get tidbits, just tips on how to be a pro. That’s the same for all the guys who played for him. Adrian’s a great evaluator, He was one of the top college recruiters, so he knows talent, and he knows how to develop talent.”
It would make sense for the Steelers to bring back Beachum. Although he is 31 years old he is very familiar with the Steelers system. Plus the Steelers offensive line needs as much help as they can get because Villanueva, Pouncey could leave and David DeCastro has one more year left on his contract. It would not be surprising if Kelvin Beachum returns to the Steelers in the offseason.
