The Pittsburgh Steelers didn’t have many surprises on their initial depth chart of 2017.
Like usual, Pittsburgh kept it pretty simple in their first depth chart release. Ben Roethlisberger as their starting quarterback, a lot of veterans missing from the list, and a few rookies getting their chance to shine early.
There was still some shockers, though. While, for the most part, this team is easy to figure out, position battles like receiver have left everyone guessing. With this initial depth chart release, these answers are some what answered, but still leave a lot of space for interpretation.
As the team heads into their first preseason game against the New York Giants, they’ll be making adjustments, and moving players accordingly. With position battles only being tested in this opening game, there is still plenty of motion ahead in this depth chart.
While the team continues to sculpt the best 53-man roster they could, players will be cut, and some will be added. When superstars like Martavis Bryant and Le’Veon Bell return, will be the first time we see a depth chart to really be concerned about.
Until then, though, we take what we can get from the opening depth chart of the 2017 season.
