These Steelers players are set to be discussed in camp given their size, athleticism, and the general potential they offer to the team.

Every year teams bring in a slew of players to camp. For the more bottom of the roster guys, having some sort of unique trait or story can really set you apart and provide you more opportunities in camp.

The Steelers are no outlier here, as they have had a plethora of camp darlings, and even some of them have gone on to find success with the team. This training camp will be no different, and a few names already stick out as potential camp studs. Here are the six Steelers that possess the most intrigue heading into training camp.

Steelers Calvin Taylor

Calvin Taylor is a name that sticks out for one reason and one reason alone: his size. He came to the Steelers as a 6’9, 310 lbs. defensive end. That kind of size is rare for any player, and it likely aided in his good play while at Kentucky. Athletically, Taylor doesn’t have much going for him, but that size is something that can’t be taught.

Now, the defensive line room is extremely deep, making his odds of securing a roster spot not great. That said, he could take another year to develop on the practice squad. As well, a positional switch could be in store for Taylor, as his size screams offensive tackle. Either way, it will be hard to miss him once camp gets underway. The Steelers more or less drafted Isaiahh Loudermilk for his size, so Taylor should have a chance to prove himself in camp because of his.
