As the Steelers enter the slower season of the NFL year, there is still a lot up for grabs this offseason. The Steelers have aggressively added to their roster and in particular, the bottom of the roster has a lot of new faces. This will lead to quite a few new faces accounting for the bottom of the depth chart.

This will lead to quite a few former draft picks fighting for their roster spot. Being a draft pick can only get you so far, and the Steelers will eventually replace these players if they aren’t up to standard. While being a pick gives you a better shot, it doesn’t lock you into being with the team long-term. Here are seven former draft picks at risk of not making the roster this Summer.

Steelers may not keep Spencer Anderson

The Steelers rounded out their impressive draft class with Spencer Anderson, a less notable name amidst a talented haul. Anderson was a multi-tool on the offensive line at Maryland and possesses great size to boot. He has experience all over the place, and while he can play tackle, he seems primed to be an interior body.

The issue is the interior of the line has a lot of depth. While the versatility of Anderson will be an aid, it doesn’t lock him into a spot. He needs to get some more reps at center, and if he can prove his value as a tackle, all the better, but Anderson isn’t a lock to make this team given the depth along the line.
