The Steelers wrapped up their preseason schedule for the 2023 calendar by shutting out the Atlanta Falcons on the road. They were able to finish undefeated and the starters were able to give the fans hope that this club could make some noise in the NFL this year. Some great performances overshadowed some of the bad ones in this third game of the preseason.
This is where everything either comes together for a player or falls apart. They either play one of their best games of their lives with the hope that they can stick on the final 53-man roster because of it. Others cannot live up to that pressure and continue to struggle during their final chance of catching the eyes of the organization in a positive light.
Le'Raven Clark has been losing ground since day one of camp
One player that has been falling down the depth chart in recent weeks has been Le'Raven Clark. He has fallen behind after starting training camp as the primary backup at right tackle. Things have not gone smoothly for him since then and Dylan Cook has seemingly jumped ahead of him on the roster. Clark does possess some good qualities, but it might be hard to keep him around.
Cook will not make this roster either, but he will be brought back on the practice squad if he can clear waivers. Clark could always be kept on the initial 53-man roster, but the Steelers should be on the lookout for external options as they become available. It has not been a good summer for Clark as he continued those struggles throughout preseason games.
