The Pittsburgh Steelers have continued to work this offseason on building the roster heading into training camp. Here’s our latest starting projection for the offense.
Quarterback - Kenny Pickett
The offense belongs to Kenny Pickett and this team goes as far as Pickett can carry him.
Running back - Najee Harris
Najee Harris is the starter and will get the bulk of the carries but look for plenty of touches for Jaylen Warren.
Fullback - Connor Heyward
We are giving Connor Heyward the nod here but his role will be much more than as a lead-blocking fullback.
Wide receiver - Diontae Johnson
Diontae Johnson is the lead receiver on the team and should see the most targets among receivers.
Wide receiver - George Pickens
George Pickens should continue to expand his role in the passing offense well beyond just the occasional big play.
Slot receiver - Allen Robinson
We should see speedy Calvin Austin III in this role some but the experience of Allen Robinson is too valuable to keep him off the field.
Tight end - Pat Freiermuth
Freiermuth will see plenty of help from guys like Zach Gentry and Darnell Washington but he is the No. 1 receiving option, especially in the red zone.
Left tackle - Dan Moore Jr.
At some point this can and will switch to Broderick Jones but for not we have to leave Moore in this spot.
Left guard - Isaac Seumalo
Isaac Seumalo was the Steelers big free-agent addition on the offensive line and really solidifies the run game over Kevin Dotson.
Center - Mason Cole
We have Mason Cole returning as the starting center but this one could be a training camp battle if Nate Herbig and Kendrick Green step up.
Right guard - James Daniels
James Daniels returns as the starting right guard and is still the best all-around offensive lineman on the team.
Right tackle - Chuks Okorafor
Chuks Okorafor returns as the starting right tackle and we hope he continues to develop.
