Brian O'Neill OT 6' 6 306 lbs

Round Drafted: 

Started all 13 games at right tackle...extended his streak of consecutive starts to 25 contests...while he was highly integral for Pitt's pass protection and nationally ranked running game, O'Neill actually carried the ball twice himself--scoring touchdowns each time...his initial carry came on a throwback lateral that went for a 24-yard TD in the Panthers' 37-34 win over Georgia Tech...reached the end zone again on an end-around play against Virginia Tech that resulted in a five-yard score...had two carries for 29 yards on the year (14.5 avg.) and even threw two passes (against Syracuse and Northwestern, both incomplete)...O'Neill's unconventional contributions earned him SB Nation's 2016 "Piesman Trophy," which honors offensive and defensive linemen who run, pass or catch the ball...SB Nation first team All-American...was an All-ACC selection by the coaches (second team) and media (third team).
