Brian O’Neill, OL, Pittsburgh

Height 6-7

Weight 305 lbs

40 - 4.82

Projected Round: 3-4

“O'Neill's athleticism helped him win honors as Delaware High School Defensive Player of the Year (five sacks, 13 pass deflections, also 33 receptions, 614 yards, and eight touchdowns as a tight end) in football and the state's basketball Player of the Year award. His talent came as no surprise since his father was a running back at Dartmouth and his mother a swimmer at Northeastern University. O'Neill was a tight end during his redshirt season in 2014 and the following spring but moved over to offensive tackle before the 2015 season. He played in all 13 games, starting the final 12 (one at left tackle, the rest at right tackle). O'Neill continued his improvement on the line, starting all 13 games at right tackle and earning second-team All-ACC from league coaches. Injuries on the line caused him to move to left tackle for his junior season, where he started all 12 games and garnered first-team all-conference honors. Pitt coaches used O'Neill' athleticism as an offensive weapon as a rusher (two scores, one on a lateral and the other on an end-around) and passer (0-for-2). He won the satirical "Piesman Trophy" in 2016 for one of his touchdowns.”

Another “Go Hard” pick is Brian O’Neill and this guy is special. Personally I would pick this kid up as well. What a character. I love watching an offensive lineman with an attitude. When they take their work personal it just makes them more effective. “5 Thumbs up” all the way for Brian O’Neill. Check the video I think you’ll see what I mean. Great pick Go Hard!
