We are a little under two weeks away until players must report to Steelers training camp at Saint Vincent College. The following day is the start of fans showing up in droves as they get amped up for some football. There are always some storylines that develop before, during, and after camp that will help shape this roster.

There are a handful of players that could be on the roster bubble heading into training camp that some might not imagine. Obvious choices are still there, but many experts also think that some players on the bubble have a better chance to make this team than fans give them credit for. This pre-season should be interesting to watch as those last couple of spots on the final 53-man roster shake out.

Look out for a special teamer to potentially be a roster bubble player this pre-season

Competition could change the structure of the specialists on the Steelers completely. Chris Boswell will be back but both Pressley Harvin III and Christian Kuntz could get some scares along the way. Of the three, it seems like Harvin could struggle to keep his job most. There are certain things to like about his game, but he is too inconsistent where it matters most.

A punter's job is the direct outcome of the field position in a game. They could single-handedly change that field position in your favor or against you. Harvin has been too inconsistent to make the kicking part of his game consistent enough. He has a real challenger in Braden Mann, but Harvin's holding ability might be enough to keep him around.
