The Steelers are about to start their training camp and these players could be the darlings that stand out among their teammates. 

The Steelers head to Saint Vincent College in Latrobe, PA. once again for another training camp. It is the first time that the team will return there and continue their annual tradition after taking a couple of years away from the campus. It is becoming increasingly uncommon for clubs across the NFL to go away for camp, but Pittsburgh is still one of the few.

There will be many different things to monitor throughout training camp and the regular season. Fans should pay close attention to starting snaps given out to certain players at positions of importance. Some of those include center, guard, quarterback, defensive line, and others.

It is going to be another competitive camp for the black and gold on the fields of Latrobe. Some players always stand out and some come out of nowhere. Those camp darlings are always some of the most impressive and that will happen again this year.

Dan Moore Jr. could take a big step forward for the Steelers

Dan Moore Jr. is entering his second season in the NFL after having an up and down rookie year. He played well in the ladder portion of the 2021 campaign and that earned him the right to be the starter at left tackle for this season. There is no competition to challenge him, but the hope is that he will take a big step forward in year two.

He has been putting in the work during the offseason and now has some experience on his NFL resume. Moore is still only 23 years old and has time to continue to develop while being a starter for this offensive line. He should be able to come into camp and show coaches his improvements, or they will have to look at other players to replace him after this season.
