Prior to make wagers at any of the top PA Sportsbooks it is important to know the Steelers roster top to bottom.

The Offense

Quarterbacks (3): Kenny Pickett, Mitch Trubisky, Mason Rudolph.

The Steelers' quarterback selection highlights their preference for seasoned veterans over undrafted rookies. Despite Mason Rudolph's performance drop since Tampa Bay, the team values experience and depth in the quarterback position.

Running Backs (3): Najee Harris, Jaylen Warren, Anthony McFarland 

Najee Harris leads a trio of talented running backs, with Jaylen Warren showcasing growth and Anthony McFarland impressing with enhanced vision. The running back debate persists, but all three are valuable assets for the roster.

Fullback (1): Connor Heyward 

The Steelers' Kendrick Green experiment has given way to Connor Heyward's versatility, earning him a fullback, tight end, slot receiver, and more role.

Wide Receivers (6): Diontae Johnson, George Pickens, Allen Robinson, Calvin Austin, Gunner Olszewski, Miles Boykin 

Miles Boykin secures his spot with solid special teams play, making him a valuable addition alongside established veterans and emerging talents in the wide receiver corps.

Tight End (2): Pat Freiermuth, Darnell Washington 

The emergence of other positions puts pressure on the tight-end selection. Zach Gentry's prospects are dimmed, and Connor Heyward and Darnell Washington offer capable backup options for Pat Freiermuth.

Offensive Tackle (3): Dan Moore Jr., Chukwuma Okorafor, Broderick Jones 

Dan Moore Jr.'s strong showing bolsters the offensive tackle position while Broderick Jones progresses. Spencer Anderson acts as the fourth tackle option.

Offensive Guard (4): Isaac Seumalo, James Daniels, Nate Herbig, Kevin Dotson

Nate Herbig's injury poses challenges, but his initial inclusion is expected. The Steelers may consider short-term IR if needed, but the guard lineup remains strong.

Center (2): Mason Cole, Spencer Anderson 

Kendrick Green's roster spot is precarious, and Spencer Anderson emerges as a better center option, potentially contributing across the offensive line.

The Defense

Nose Tackle (2): Keeanu Benton, Breiden Fehoko

The Steelers' nose tackle tandem excels with Keeanu Benton and Breiden Fehoko, demonstrating qualities reminiscent of past successes.

Defensive Tackle (3): Cam Heyward, Isaiahh Loudermilk, Armon Watts

The competition is fierce among defensive linemen, with Jonothan Marshall showcasing promise. Cam Heyward, Isaiahh Loudermilk, and Armon Watts stand out, leaving Montraveius Adams as the odd man out.

Defensive End (2): Larry Ogunjobi, DeMarvin Leal

The defensive end lineup remains consistent, reflecting the Steelers' early summer predictions.

Outside Linebacker (4): T.J. Watt, Alex Highsmith, Nick Herbig, Markus Golden

Nick Herbig's standout preseason performance and the strength of the outside linebacker corps position the Steelers for a successful season.

Inside Linebacker (5): Cole Holcomb, Elandon Roberts, Kwon Alexander, Mark Robinson, Tanner Muse

Tanner Muse's strong showing solidifies his spot alongside inside linebacker stalwarts Cole Holcomb, Elandon Roberts, Kwon Alexander, and Mark Robinson.

Cornerback (4): Patrick Peterson, Levi Wallace, Joey Porter Jr., Outside Signing

The Steelers' cornerback position reveals gaps that necessitate post-cut signings. James Pierre and Luq Barcoo's struggles underscore the need for reinforcements.

Nickelback (2): Elijah Riley, Chandon Sullivan

Elijah Riley and Chandon Sullivan both exhibit impressive performances, likely securing spots in a position where depth is essential.

Safety (4): Minkah Fitzpatrick, Keanu Neal, Damontae Kazee, Miles Killebrew

Miles Killebrew's special teams value cements his roster spot, while the safety unit boasts a mix of experience and potential.

The Defense

Kicker (1): Chris Boswell

Chris Boswell remains the undisputed choice for the kicker position.

Punter (1): Pressley Harvin

Pressley Harvin edges out the competition with consistent performances, securing the punter position for the upcoming season.

Long Snapper (1): Christian Kuntz

Christian Kuntz's role as the long snapper is a certainty, providing stability to the special teams unit.

As the Steelers finalize their roster, a blend of seasoned veterans and emerging talents across positions ensures a competitive and well-rounded team poised for success in the upcoming NFL season.
