– Mason Rudolph’s stats don’t look great. What’s as interesting is the day-to-day use. Rotating between heavy rep days (19 attempts on Day Three, 4 attempts on Day One and Five).

– Nice to see Josh Dobbs’ completion percentage healthily clear 60%.

– No question the team is getting a long look at Conner and Samuels. Those two make up 51.1% of the RB carries. Comes at the expense of a guy like Stevan Ridley, who has only eight.

– James Washington with a lower completion percentage. Coty Sensabaugh providing some sticky coverage. Damoun Patterson’s numbers match his impressive play.

– Jaylen Samuels 2nd of all RBs with seven targets. Roosevelt Nix the only one with more. James Conner also a perfect 6/6. Not bad.

– DHB already has more catches this camp (10) than he had all of last camp (9).

– Through only five practices, the Steelers defense has already recorded eight interceptions. They had only 12 through 16 of them in 2017. Last year, only William Gay had multiple interceptions. This year, there’s two. Burns and Edmunds.
