While most detest rankings, like the yearly rankings the NFL Network throws out where they rank the Top 100 players from the previous year, people sure do pay attention to them. For fans of the Pittsburgh Steelers, they love to see their favorite players represent the black-and-gold on the national stage for all to see.
To date, the Steelers have had three players on the Top 100, and they are:
No.48 Cameron Heyward
No. 47 Ryan Shazier
No. 44 David DeCastro
On Tuesday night, another member of the Steelers cracked the Top 20, and it was none other than quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
Roethlisberger, coming off a great season which resulted in a Pro Bowl selection, was No. 18 on the list. He moved up 4 spots from his 2017 ranking of No. 22. While not a Top 10 player in the league, again, he is still listed among the best quarterbacks in the game. Of the players who have been listed already, only Russell Wilson is ranked ahead of him (No. 11), but players like Tom Brady and Drew Brees have yet to be announced.
During Roethlisberger’s segment, you hear from JuJu Smith-Schuster as he diagrams his 98-yard catch and run vs. the Detroit Lions last season on Sunday Night Football, Calais Campbell and of course Antonio Brown.
