The Pittsburgh Steelers are through with OTAs and will be off until training camp next month. There were some players who impressed and some who did not and I will be trying to predict who makes the roster by week one.
The Pittsburgh Steelers offseason activities are complete. With that said, the 53 man roster is a long way from being solidified. However, after OTAs, it is a fun time to try and predict things to kick off the home stretch before football returns.
Minicamps and OTAs are just football in shorts. However, they are a good gauge to see how fast new additions are acclimating to the team. Without further delay, here is my prediction.
Ben and Mason are obvious plays here for the QBs. The only question is whether or not the Steelers finally cut Jones or give up on Joshua Dobbs early.
With the experience Jones has as a backup, I think Pittsburgh opts to go with Jones. Do I agree with it? No, I don’t but I think they will make a move like this. I would love to see them cut ties with Jones and see what they have in Dobbs and Rudolph as the two and three.
The most likely scenario is Pittsburgh trying to sneak Dobbs onto the practice squad. Obviously, some team would scoop him up and he would be gone but then they could say they tried.
