The NFL Draft is fast approaching, and many teams are taking strides to narrow down who they are going to select.
Many teams have invited select prospects to come and meet with them ahead of the draft, conducting interviews and workouts.
Per Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network, the Washington Commanders and Pittsburgh Steelers have recently brought in O’Cyrus Torrence, one of the top offensive line prospects.
Florida OL O’Cyrus Torrence is visiting the #Steelers today and the #Commanders tomorrow, per source. “Cybo” is a likely first-round pick; Washington picks 16th and Pittsburgh 17th.

Torrence has been touted by many as a potential first-round pick, given his success in college.
After spending the first three years of his collegiate career at the University of Louisiana, Torrence transferred to the University of Florida.
In his final collegiate season at the University of Florida, he was named a consensus All-American, as well as a member of the SEC’s First-Team.
The Commanders and the Steelers are both slated to have young quarterbacks under center for the 2023 season.
Kenny Pickett is the Steelers’ starter after being selected in the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft.
The Commanders may be rolling out Sam Howell as their starter this year if recent reporting is correct.
Adding a blue-chip prospect like Torrence would be a building block to an offensive line.
Even though Torrence will be a rookie in 2023, many scouts and analysts believe he is a plug-and-play option for many teams.
Whether Torrence is drafted by the Commanders or the Steelers remains to be seen.
However, the fact that both teams brought him in confirms that he is a high-value prospect, and is likely to be drafted in the first round.NEXT: Ron Rivera Makes Big Admission About Chase Young's Future
