MORGANTOWN, West Virginia — Former WVU center and Fairmont, West Virginia native Zach Frazier was selected in the 2nd round and #51 overall in the 2024 NFL Draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Today, Frazier officially signed with the Steelers!

Frazier, a 6’3 313 pound center, finished his decorated Mountaineer career with two All-American selections, three All-Big 12 selections, and 46 starts in 47 career games.

As a 2nd round pick, Frazier’s 4 year contract will total to approximately $7,544,214 and will include a signing bonus around $2,306,700.

“I just know how much offensive line means to the Pittsburgh Steelers, their long tradition of having great o-linemen and great offensive lines,” said Frazier. “It’s special. They already went to the offensive line in the first round. It’s special. I am excited.

“They’re getting a hard worker who is going to give everything he has to the organization to win football games. I couldn’t be more excited.”

According to the statement from the Steelers, “Frazier, who didn’t allow a sack all season, was part of an offensive line that led the Power 5 in rushing yards (2,976 yards) and was tied for No. 11 in the nation with 32 rushing touchdowns. The offensive line was ranked No. 2 among Power 5 schools for fewest sacks allowed with 10. West Virginia was the only Big 12 school to finish with more than 2,000 rushing yards in conference games.”

“It’s rare you find a guy with that kind of pedigree and his resume and the amount of snaps he has in college,” said offensive coordinator Arthur Smith. “He’s been a high achiever his whole life, and we couldn’t be more fired up to get Zach.

“He’s got a lot of experience with pulling the ball and making calls. There’s obviously going to be adjustment to the National Football League, but that experience really helps. He was telling me he does a lot of woodworking. He builds things. Just that resume is impressive. He’s a very, very mature person for that age coming in here and that helps. That’s why we want him to play center.”
