The (Very Early) Steelers’ Depth Chart

Day Three of camp, Day One of pads. Life is good, you guys. But Day One of pads feels like a clean slate, back to looking for “everything,” when the defense gets turned loose and can hit back. So I wanted to take things in a different direction. It’s been just two days and obviously, players are going to move around during camp, but just to help give some clarity, I wanted to run through a quick depth chart based on what I’ve seen during the first two days of camp. This is strictly based off how I’ve seen them line up in camp, not what I project.

Like I said in last night’s podcast, I wanted to put all my thoughts on paper to make it more digestible than listening to me or teasing it out throughout my daily camp reports. There are some things I’m not 100% sure on but generally, we have a good feel for how the team is opening up. And of course, we’re always looking for changes. Something different is something interesting.

Generally, I will not double-up with names on this list, though you’ll see one or two exceptions.
