Brian O'Neill is not an ordinary offensive lineman.
In the opening minutes of Saturday's game against Georgia Tech, Pittsburgh's 300-pound sophomore showed superb foot speed on a designed screen pass.
Most linemen are lucky to touch the football once. Maybe sneak in a one-yard dive or end-zone catch with no defenders paying attention. O'Neill, however, caught the backward pass around the 35-yard line and sprinted for a 24-yard touchdown.
It makes more sense when one realizes the Panthers standout excelled at tight end in high school. With those skills, Pittsburgh might need to feed him the ball more often.
