2023 Steelers Prospect: Florida Offensive Lineman, O’Cyrus Torrence

Ranked By: Joe 412 and John Toth

O’Cyrus Torrence is one of the NCAA’s top interior offensive linemen

entering the 2023 draft. With great measurables, Torrence will bolster the inside

of an offensive line for years to come.

Torrence began his collegiate career at Louisiana-Lafayette, then

transferred to Florida, following head coach Billy Napier to the Swamp. He’s

played at both Left and Right Guard (mostly at Right) which gives Mike Tomlin

some positional flexibility if Torrence is the “pick.”

Torrence projects well at the next level and will quickly become a force for

any team’s run game. Watching his game film, Torrence dominates, pushing

defenders back off the ball for Florida’s running attack. And if the Steelers decide

to spend their first-round pick on a “road grader” type, he will surely help them

improve their ability to control the line of scrimmage. Draft 412 can see Najee

Harris smiling already from ear to ear, dreaming of someone like Torrence

clearing the way for him.

For a monster of a man, Torrence is nimble, helping with pulling

assignments and is a good “trap” blocker. If there are questions about his play, it’s

a need to improve his blocking for pass protection. Although he gave up no

quarterback sacks his last three seasons in the NCAA, NFL pass rushers may be

able to beat him inside. He will benefit from NFL offensive line coaching and

should improve as he enters the NFL game.

Here is a look at O’Cyrus Torrence’s pros and cons:

OL – O’Cyrus Torrence Measurables:

Height: 6’5”

Weight: 345 lbs.

Hands: 11” (waiting on combine measurements)

Arm Length: 33” (waiting on combine measurements)

Span: 84” (waiting on combine measurements)


  • Size and strength are NFL ready

  • Very physical in the run game

  • Strong enough to pick up blitzes

  • A grinder who can be nasty when needed


  • Speed and athleticism, lacks top skill

  • Slow foot work, trouble moving around in pass protection

  • Technique is sloppy at times, can be off balance.

Final Analysis

Draft 412 projects Torrence as a first rounder and perhaps the first guard off the

board in April. Torrence has room to improve but barring injury, he should enjoy a

long and successful NFL career. He projects as a day one starter for a team

seeking offensive line help and will benefit from NFL coaching.

Projected Draft Position

O’Cyrus Torrence is #17 on the Draft 412’a (powered by Sportsvival) top 50

prospects. Expect the big man to go off the board in the mid to late first round in the upcoming draft.
