I don’t remember a time when there were so many Pittsburgh Steelersposition battles arriving until the last moment as there are this season. For most of these guys, it’s less about skill and more about a numbers game. This means that the guys on this list, if they don’t make it to the Steelers, could quickly find themselves on another list. Here are the six we’ll be looking at.
OT Dylan Cook
Cook has looked strong in limited action, so much so that he was working with the second team on Thursday against the Falcons. If he doesn’t make the team, Pittsburgh will only have one true offensive tackle as a backup for both sides.
Herbig has been very good in training camp and in the preseason, but a shoulder injury could keep him off the starting 53-man roster.
Tre Norwood had little chance of making the team with the additions at safety, but being injured didn’t do him any favors.
I really hope James Pierre makes the team. But his spot will depend on how many inside linebackers and/or safeties the Steeles keep on the roster.
I’ve seen multiple projections where the Steelers opt to stay. Montravio Adams either armon watts about Fehoko. It would be a tough call given how strong Fehoko is against the run.
One of the biggest surprises of training camp was the outstanding performance by Kenny Robinson. Unfortunately, the production of special equipment from Miles Killebrew will prevent Robinson from joining the team.
If the Steelers don’t use the fullback spot to Connor HeywardZach Gentry will be out and Connor will take his spot on the depth chart.
