Linebacker is another area where it’s hard to say exactly where the Steelers will go. We know they aren’t going to go into the season with just three inside linebackers, and I think these four will be their guys, barring any late offseason acquisitions.
Devin Bush and Vince Williams are slated to start alongside each other in Pittsburgh’s base 3-4 defense, but Williams no longer has the ability to be more than a two-down player for Pittsburgh.
Ulysees Gilbert could emerge into Mark Barron’s role this season for Pittsburgh, as he possesses solid athleticism and coverage skills. I have special teams standout Robert Spillane, who played 8 games for the Steelers last year, rounding out this group.
