player. 55. David Snow is a name not too many in Steeler Nation are familiar with.  That because Snow was picked up by the Steelers last season and did not play one snap on the offensive line. Snow signed originally with the Buffalo Bills as an UDFA in 2012.  There he played in the last five games of the season as fill in for a beat up Bills line where he actually acted as the center.  The pressure is on for Snow this season during training camp.  The Steelers lost some vital backup linemen due to free agency, and Snow is one of the few left from the fallout.  He has his work cut out as he is not a very solid run blocker, which is a desired skill set for the offense this season.  He can and has played both guard positions on top of taking snaps at center, which will be helpful if DeCastro or Foster need a spell during a series or become injured short term.  But, don’t expect him to step in if Pouncey gets hurt (again).  He’ll need to rely on his good push from the snap and his ability to keep his feet moving if he hopes to have a chance being an effective backup this season.  He may seem like your Doug Legursky type, but he has far too less experience to even fall into that type of category.. G. Exp. 2yrs.. David Snow. 71
