The veteran offensive lineman earned the starting job at left tackle, starting all 13 games for Alabama in 2022. He earned second-team All-SEC honors from the league’s coaching, following a year of 25 knockdown blocks. Steen allowed 4.5 sacks, but he protected Bryce Young to 3,328 passing yards and 32 touchdown passes. He also helped Jahmyr Gibbs and Jase McClellan record over 100 rushing attempts and 500+ rushing yards. Both players totaled seven rushing touchdowns.

Steen participated in the Senior Bowl and had a good week of practice.

The 6-foot-6, 321-pounder grades at 6.13 by NFL Draft pundits, meaning “good backup with potential to develop into a starter.” Jim Nagy, the executive director for the Senior Bowl, gave his prediction on which round Steen could be selected in.

Nagy says the consensus from pro scouts is the former Crimson Tide lineman will be a second-round pick.

Steen will perform his workout at Alabama’s Pro Day.
