The Steelers stay the same and a undrafted rookie makes the club

Quarterback (3): Kenny Pickett, Mitch Trubisky, Mason Rudolph

Kenny Pickett is going into a big year for him as he needs to show strides in his progression as a quarterback. He has shown some positives throughout his starts to this point, but he has a long way to go before anyone can consider him a top ten signal caller in the league. The backups behind him are solid options in case Pickett would go down with an injury.

Mitch Trubisky may not be the best starter that Pittsburgh has seen at the quarterback position, but he is reliable. The offense was stale when he was lined up behind the center, but he reduced turnovers and kept them in games. Mason Rudolph is a quality third option that has starting experience and could be a second stringer on most teams.

Running back/Fullback (4): Najee Harris, Jaylen Warren, Alfonzo Graham, Connor Heyward

Running back has one opening on the roster and it seems like it will be Anthony McFarland's job to lose. Alfonzo Graham might be his toughest competition heading into training camp and he has been making waves. Both minicamps have created a surge to a potential roster opening for the undrafted free agent out of Morgan State.

Najee Harris and Jaylen Warren will get most of the carries unless an injury occurs. Connor Heyward will be lining up all over the field on offense and special teams, so don't be shocked if he plays at different areas beyond full back. He will get the main job there, but it could see a revolving door of players at that spot depending on what the play call is.
