The Steelers plan at running back is an intriguing part of the upcoming season

The Steelers plan at running back is an intriguing part of the upcoming season

James Conner is the feature back, but what does that mean within the 2019 Pittsburgh Steelers offense? Since the Pittsburgh Steelers drafted Le’Veon Bell, they have been a one back football team. You have your feature back, and you have those who can spell him if he is injured or needs a break. Even in situations where players like DeAngelo Williams performed well in his stead, Bell was the man the coaches never took off the field. With Bell now gone, the Steelers have turned their attention to James Conner as the feature back, but Conner has yet to play all 16 games of a regular season....

Benny Snell Jr. to prove to the Steelers he is more than just a power running back

Benny Snell Jr. to prove to the Steelers he is more than just a power running back

When the Pittsburgh Steelers drafted Benny Snell Jr., they knew they got a pure power running back. Snell is out to prove he can do more than just power running. With Le’Veon Bell now a member of the New York Jets, the Pittsburgh Steelers running backs all have their own areas where they excel. James Conner, probably the most complete of the Steelers running backs, is best suited for a one-cut downhill style of running attack. In contrast, Jaylen Samuels proved last year he might lead the group in versatility. With the ability to run routes and catch passes out of the backfield, Samuels...

Chuks Okorafor losing in hopes of gaining a starting spot on the Steelers’ line in 2019

The Pittsburgh Steelers second year offensive lineman has slimmed down in hopes of separating himself from his competition. The starting right tackle spot on the Pittsburgh Steelers’ offensive line is up for grabs. When you think about it, it has been a long time since there has even been a battle to be had along the formidable front that protects Ben Roethlisberger and opens holes for James Conner. But with the trade of Marcus Gilbert to the Arizona Cardinals for a 6th round draft pick, there is now a starting position up for grabs. Who will win it? It is between Matt Feiler, Chukwuma...

NFL Network releases teaser video of James Conner being in the NFL Top 100

The Pittsburgh Steelers starting running back will be a part of the NFL’s Top 100 series. Some people love lists, and other people despise them. As for me, I thoroughly enjoy watching the NFL Network’s Top 100 series every summer as a lead up to the NFL season. With the NHL and NBA playoffs over, sports fans aren’t left with much other than the wait for football to start. I always want to see where the various members of the Pittsburgh Steelers rank, but I’ll honestly watch fellow players talk about their peers seven days a week and twice on Sundays.
