The Pittsburgh Steelers signed offensive lineman Chukwuma Okorafor, their second of two third-round picks on Tuesday.

Financial terms on the four-year deal for the former offensive tackle from Western Michigan were not disclosed.

“He is a guy that is going to fit what we are looking for,” Steelers offensive line coach Mike Munchak told the team’s official website. “He can play right or left tackle. Great size, great strength. I am excited about the opportunity to work with him. I am excited to add someone of his caliber, someone who has a chance to grow, improve.”

The 6-foot-6, 320-pound Okorafor was the 92nd overall pick in the draft. He started 39 games at Western Michigan and was a first-team All-American in 2017.

"It’s time to just learn. It’s me just putting my head down and getting to work,” Okorafor told Steelers.com.

Okorafor is the fifth of the Steelers seven picks in this year's draft to sign.
