As camps begin, the Pittsburgh Steelers will begin trimming their roster to form the 53 men they believe can take them to the Super Bowl.
The Pittsburgh Steelers have wrapped up the draft and signed their undrafted free agents. They now head into mini-camp and we will see who of the tryout players is signed. Here is a look at who could be on the roster and practice squad for Week One against the Cleveland Browns.
- Ben Roethlisberger
- Landry Jones
- Mason Rudolph
The Steelers biggest change to this group is adding Mason Rudolph. I still think you keep your backup in Landry Jones so that you avoid having to throw Mason Rudolph into the fire before he is ready. Barring an injury, I think Josh Dobbs is the odd man out in Pittsburgh.
Running Backs (3)
- Le’Veon Bell
- James Conner
- Jaylen Samuels
I think the biggest battle for this group will be between Fitzgerald Toussant and Jaylen Samuels. They both have the tools to play on special teams, but I think Samuels gets the nod because of his versatility.
- Roosevelt Nix
This is pretty strait-forward. Nix was a Pro Bowler last year and has earned himself a second contract.
