Best Pittsburgh Steelers Players Going Into the 2020 SeasonThe Pittsburgh Steelers are an interesting team. Obviously last year they were screwed over by Big Ben getting injured and thus had to rely on Devlin Hodges and Mason Rudolph neither were very reliable so the offense took a sharp hit. However their defense was surprisingly solid. There’s hope Ben Roethlisberger can come back so let’s see what happens this upcoming season maybe they can sneak into the playoffs if the cards fall in their favor
The Top Ten
Sure he missed some time but in his relatively young career he’s developed into a dangerous weapon. Easily the most consistent weapon the Steelers have and one of the best in the entire AFC. Now he’s doing well taking over the top receiver spot left by the void of Antonio Brown
Steelers made a bold move trading for him last year and let’s just say it worked out quite well for them. Miami wasn’t exactly his fit and Pittsburgh picked him up and the change in scenery oh it only led to him becoming a young stud on defense with 5 interceptions and 57 tackles it was WAY better than he ever could’ve dreamed of in Miami. See Dolphins this is what happens when you utilize talent properly. You could’ve had him but nope!
He has grown in his game following quite nicely in JJ’s footprints. Had 14.5 sacks last year and 2 interceptions earning him a pro bowl/ first team all pro bid so yeah he’s legit. The Watt legacy is strong with this one
Man this guy is fire!
He’s been a decent enough replacement for Le’Veon Bell. Had a monster 2018 season getting a pro bowl bid but took a step back in 2019 since he missed some games. Still a young running back with a lot of potential if they use him right.
This guy has been a beast he had 83 tackles last year and 9 sacks which is good enough to earn a Pro Bowl selection and not just that but first team all pro. Pretty impressive numbers for one of the most important players on their defense
Big Ben obviously missed a lot of games now this is assuming he comes back. Even in that scenario will he be the same QB? Keep in mind he’s like 38 and past his prime years. He’s still a veteran talent capable of running the offense so he’s better than those backups but that’s not saying much. I’ll rank him towards the middle until we see him play again
He’s a serviceable TE. Sure he’s missed a game here or there but when he’s on the field he can make some plays
Bush had a solid rookie campaign last year with 109 tackles a sack and 2 interceptions not bad. I think what’s even more exciting for the black and gold is he has plenty of room to fulfill his potential. A key piece on that defense
Joe Haden has really developed into an overall well rounded corner for the Steelers he had 65 tackles and 5 interceptions last year which was good enough for him to earn a Pro Bowl selection. Should expect to see that continue
Tuitt unfortunately had his season cut short last year but had a solid 2018 season. If he can stay healthy and get back to those type of numbers he’ll have a solid season arguably just as important as Heyward
