Training Camp

2019 Steelers Training Camp Stats: First Four Practices

After every off day, our goal is to comb through our daily notes to calculate training camp stats. Like I said before this year began, we’ve added yards to the numbers this year in order to offer better context. To be clear, the yards aren’t 100% exact, sometimes off by a yard or two, but they should provide valuable information to round things out. Here are the numbers from the first four practices.

For quarterbacks, we have completions, attempts, completion %, yards, yards per completion, touchdowns, and picks.

Quarterbacks

Ben Roethlisberger: 35/50 (70%) 406 yards (11.6 YPC) 6 TDs 1 INT
Mason Rudolph: 35/48 (72.9%), 238 yards (6.8 YPC) 6 TDs 1 INT
Josh Dobbs: 19/47 (40.4%), 168 yards (8.8 YPC) 2 TDs 4 INTs
Devlin Hodges: 19/26 (73.1%) 158 yards (8.3 YPC) 0 TDs 1 INT

– Quick thoughts. Roethlisberger doing well, as always. Rudolph has been more conservative, bumping his completion percentage but dragging down his yards per completion.┬áHe is the only QB not to have a 20+ yard pass.

Dobbs has been the opposite but wow, that sub-41% completion rate is abysmal and an area he’s always struggled in. 55.2% last year. Rudolph has seen a big upgrade, 57% last year to 73% right now.

– Dobbs threw four picks last year and had six last camp. One or two of those weren’t his fault though. to be fair. Numbers don’t always add crystal clear context.

– Like I said before, Hodges better than your typical #4 quarterback. Pretty good numbers.

Running Back Carries/Yards

Malik Williams: 6 carries, 34 yards (5.7 YPC)
Ralph Webb: 9 carries, 50 yards (5.6 YPC)
Benny Snell: 14 carries, 73 yards (5.2 YPC)
James Conner: 6 carries, 21 yards (3.5 YPC)
Trey Edmunds: 6 carries, 16 yards (2.7 YPC)
Jaylen Samuels: 7 carries, 13 yards (1.9 YPC)
Diontae Johnson: 1 carry, 15 yards
Ryan Switzer: 1 carry, 5 yards

– A lot more useful stats with the yards involved. Blocking has a lot to do with success/failure but Williams, Webb, and Snell have been impressive in run sessions and their numbers reflect it. Burst to hit the second level or win the edge. No fumbles either from the entire group which is really critical. Numbers highlight Samuels’ quiet start to camp.

Wide Receiver Catches/Targets/Yards/Touchdowns

– Catches, targets, yards, touchdowns, followed by catch %.

JuJu Smith-Schuster: 13/21 207 yards 3 TDs – 61.9%
James Washington: 10/19 107 yards 1 TD – 52.6%
Donte Moncrief: 13/17 125 yards 2 TDs – 76.5%
Diontae Johnson: 8/14 63 yards 3 TDs – 57.1%
Vance McDonald: 8/13 48 yards 1 TD – 61.5%
Diontae Spencer: 7/11 107 yards – 63.6%
Tevin Jones: 4/8 28 yards – 50%
Jaylen Samuels: 6/7 33 yards – 85.7%
James Conner: 6/7 24 yards 1 TD – 85.7%
Ryan Switzer: 5/5 39 yards – 100%
Kevin Rader: 2/5 11 yards 1 TD – 40%
Trey Edmunds: 5/5 9 yards – 100%
Ralph Webb: 4/4 33 yards – 100%
Trevor Wood: 4/4 24 yards 1 TD – 100%
Zach Gentry: 3/4 26 yards – 75%
Christian Scotland-Williamson: 2/4 9 yards – 50%
Eli Rogers: 2/3 29 yards – 66%
Xavier Grimble: 2/3 18 yards 1 TD – 66%
Benny Snell: 2/3 15 yards – 66%
Travon McMillan: 1/2 8 yards – 50%
Malik Williams: 1/2 7 yards – 50%
Johnny Holton: 1/1 10 yards – 100%
Roosevelt Nix: 1/1 6 yards – 100%
Trey Griffey: 0/1 0 yards – 0%

– Did update my numbers from the article I wrote on JuJu yesterday. Missed two receptions the first time through (these take a long time to put together with a lot of cross referencing).

– Diontae Johnson doing his damage underneath. No reception over 12 yards.

– Good numbers for Washington and Moncrief.

– Despite three fewer receptions, Eli Rogers has just ten fewer yards than Ryan Switzer. Which kinda feels how both guys play. Switzer’s receptions are: 6, 8, 7, 5, and 11 yards. Rogers has catches of 10 and 19.

– Scotland-Williamson has two receptions already this year. Had just three all of last camp.

– Trey Griffey….yikes. Quiet as a church mouse.
