The Pittsburgh Steelers will be focusing on depth in this projection. They are looking to solidify their depth at several key positions such as cornerback, along the offensive and defensive lines as well as throughout their linebacker corps. Versatility is valued with Mike Tomlin, and why several players have roster spots rather than going to the practice squad.

Some difficult decisions were made as Terence Garvin did not make the final cut, but Jordan Zumwalt did. Punter Jordan Berry beat out fellow Aussie Brad Wing and Robert Golden kept himself employed by beating our Ross Ventrone. 2014 training camp phenom Howard Jones also saw Shawn Lemon steal his chances of being a member of the Steelers as Lemon wins the chance to make his first NFL roster.
