The Pittsburgh Steelers have a roster filled with young play-makers. Some players always generate stories, but what about the players no one seems to talk about?

The big headline story of the 2020 Steelers is the return of Ben Roethlisberger. Rightfully so, as his return will dominate headlines at training camp and into the season.

There are also other players like T.J. Watt who may get a new deal soon, Bud Dupree who is looking to prove 2019 wasn’t a fluke, and James Conner and JuJu Smith-Schuster coming off a injury-plagued seasons.

These players are going to be talked about more than anyone else on the team. However, there are a few players who deserve more recognition in the media and story-lines when discussing how the 2020 season will play out.

It is hard to determine whether it would be good for a player to be talked about more. Some players shine in the spotlight while others simply strive to work under the radar and let their play be a surprise for everyone to see.

There are always players the media and fans over-hype and fail to live up to the expectations. Sometimes, though, there are players who have little to no expectation that explode throughout any given season.

With the 2020 season fast approaching, the rookie story-lines are always there along with the ones mentioned earlier. However, the following four players deserve to have their own time in the spotlight during camp.
