Estimating the impact each Pittsburgh Steelers rookie will have in 2022
By Tommy Jaggi
Chris Oladokun: No impact
It was certainly interesting that the Pittsburgh Steelers elected to use their final draft choice to double up on the quarterback position. This was no doubt for financial reasons and gaining the benefit of a scout-team quarterback on a rookie contract.
As we currently stand, Chris Oladokun doesn’t have a chance to crack the 53-man roster, as the Steelers have Kenny Pickett, Mitch Trubisky, and Mason Rudolph ahead of him and Pittsburgh isn’t about to keep four quarterbacks.
Even if Pittsburgh finds a way to move on from Rudolph prior to the start of the season, Oladokun is a game-day inactive at best and it would take a series of unfortunate events for him to see an NFL field during the regular season as a rookie. He won’t have an impact on the team at all this year.
It will be interesting to see if these predictions come to fruition. Based on the current roster, and each player’s draft status, we can make a fairly accurate prediction when it comes to the path to playing time for the Steelers this year.
