2014 Outlook: Quality Backup

Last updated on Jun-30-2014 by Mark Morales-Smith

The Steelers defense was not as strong in 2013 as we have all become accustomed. They did begin to play better late in the season. though. The Steel City is lacking a star power, especially under the age of 30. In the past, the Steelers would make stars out of linebackers they pick up off the scrap heap. They added former Defensive Payer of the Year James Harrison after he went undrafted and was cut multiple times. The Steelers opted to get younger and faster. They most notably added first round pick Ryan Shazier, a speedy athletic linebacker out of Ohio State that the Steelers hope can wreak havoc on opposing offenses. They also have a new look secondary, which is a huge question mark. Pitt also has questions at the tackle position and their ability to stop the run against power-running teams. Pittsburgh is an above-average DST2. They should be backups in most standard league formats.
