Steelers 53-Man Roster Projections: POST-HOF Game

By COMON Network

Each week during the preseason, and more importantly, after each preseason contest, Kyle Dawson, Donny Chedrick and Joe Smeltzer will release their 53-man roster projections for the Pittsburgh Steelers’ final 2021 roster going into the team’s week one date with the Buffalo Bills.

With that said, here are the team’s roster projections for the week. These are post the Hall of Fame Game win over the Dallas Cowboys in Canton.

The projections and players at each position are not necessarily in order for the ideal depth chart, just the players that will make the roster in our projections.
