We are off. Off to see the beginning of the 2017 Pittsburgh Steelers season. Our fearless leader, Dave Bryan, has led the way and already given his post-draft 2017 Steelers 53-man Roster prediction: LINK
Since our above average Steelers blogger has set the example; as an average Steelers fan, I will follow his lead. Do your own and we can even grade these to see if we have any A+ prognosticators. Easy to pass; just need 37 correct. Get 43 right and your grade is a B. 48 or more and you’ve earned yourself an A. Perfect 53 and you are a Steelers Depot Valedictorian!
