Chris Boswell, Corliss Waitman, Kameron Canaday

This group is seemingly set, as Chris Boswell and Kameron Canaday have essentially no competition for their roster spot. The only player threatened is Jordan Berry since the team brought in Corliss Waitman as a UDFA. While Berry is still the favorite, his job is most threatened. Waitman has a decent leg but struggles with placement. If he can improve upon that, we may see a serious camp battle.

Practice Squad (12)

Kerrith Whyte, Saeed Blacknall, Kevin Radar, Jarron Jones, Calvin Taylor, J.C. Hassenauer, Josiah Coatney, Henry Mondeaux, James Lockhart, Leo Lewis, James Pierre, John Battle

These are the players I think have the best shot at sitting for a year and developing. This list is the hardest one to make, as the team usually adds options from cutdowns as opposed to using just their roster. That said, this will keep their depth chart deep as they will be just one call away if an injury were to strike.

As is usual, roughly 80 percent of the roster is set, meaning that the last 20 percent will be fought for by the back end of the roster players. With camp set to be a unique one considering the shortened offseason, the Steelers should see some top talent compete for the last few roster spots in just a few months.
