Moving along to part 48 of our 90-part series — assuming the roster does not change before we are complete — which will break down each player of the Steelers current 90-man roster in alphabetical order. This series will encompass many aspects of each players game and their current role with the team. At the end, I’ll give some projected stats as well as their chances to make the 53-man roster.
Let’s take a look at the former Dallas Renegades center.

Likelihood of making the roster
None. As offseason and team activities shrink, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, players who weren't on roster in 2019 will have a hard time making the roster. The Steelers tend to bring along just one player to backup the interior three positions, while they could add another in 2020 it appears that both spots will be occupied. Stefen Wisneiwski and Kevin Dotson aren't getting cut off this roster, but Keenoy will have a shot at the practice squad.
Due to the possibility of a smaller roster size then normal I just don't see a world where the Steelers carry extra offensive lineman because of the level of depth at the position. I can't see Keenoy contribute in any way unless an injury deemed it necessary.
The Steelers offensive line is trying to bounce back from a down year in 2019. They reloaded the position and will return 4 of its starters from a year ago. I have a hard time imagining a world where they mess with the chemistry of the room, and for that reason I don't think Keenoy will have any role bigger then playing on the practice squad.
