Default Mock 53 man roster....

I am bored and with Training Camp approaching, I thought I would do a mock roster and Depth Chart. :)

QB #7 Ben Roethlisbeger -- Big Ben is back with a year under his belt
QB #8 Tommy Maddox -- Solid back-up
QB #2 Brian St. Pierre -- Servicable back-up, and cheaper than Batch

RB #22 Duce Staley -- If healthy, could be one of the most productive backs in the NFL
RB #36 Jerome Bettis -- The Bus is back, and its last stop is Detroit
RB #34 Verron Haynes -- Maybe could start for some teams? very effective on third down
RB #39 Willie Parker -- Will get some snaps as a change of pace back

FB #35 Dan Kreider -- A great blocker, and very underated
FB #38 Noah Herron -- Haynes is a FA in 06, I think Herron starts at FB and move in to Verron's role

LT #77 Marvel Smith -- Pro-Bowl Tackle
LT #72 Barrett Brokks -- Veteran back-up

LG #66 Alan Faneca -- Best Gaurd in the game
LG #68 Chris Kemoeatu -- Tough rookie who was very good at Utah

C #64 Jeff Hartings -- Pro-Bowler in last year, but this may be his last season
C #56 Chukky Okobi -- Very capable back-up

RG #73 Kendall Simmons -- Misssed all last season, but can be a domminating blocker
RG #74 Jim Jones -- Played on the Pratice Squad last year

RT #78 Max Starks -- Second round pick in 2003, he should be ready to play at this level
RT #79 Trai Essex -- Rookie third round pick, good quickness but needs work

TE #84 Jerame Tuman -- Solid Tight-End
TE #83 Heath Miller -- Rookie first round pick, could be starting by mid-season, has the tools to become a premier TE in the NFL
TE #87 Walter Rasby -- Veteran Tight-End and a great blocker

WR #86 Hines Ward -- One of the best all-around receivers in the NFL
WR #82 Antwaan Randle El -- Can play the X-Spot, slot, or flaker positions, and punt return
WR #80 Cedrick Wilson -- Will share time with El, but may move into Plax's role
WR #11 Fred Gibson -- Rookie fourth round pick with height and speed
WR #89 Lee Mays -- I can't see Cowher going with Young or Cobb

LE #91 Aaron Smith -- Pro-Bowler, very strong and plays hard
LE #99 Brett Keisel -- Good back-up

DT #98 Casey Hampton -- One of the best Nose Tackles in the game, missed last season with injury
DT #76 Chris Hoke -- Great back-up, played a lot last season
DT #74 Grant Bowman -- Practice Squad last season, was good at Michigan

RE #67 Kimo von Oelhoffen -- Very solid veteran, may share time with Hoke
RE #90 Travis Kirschke -- Veteran back-up
RE #96 Shaun Nua -- Rookie seventh round pick

LOLB #53 Clark Haggens -- Solid Linebacker, needs to be a more effective pass-rusher
LOLB #44 Dedrick Roper -- Very impressive in camp and in pre-season, a great athlete

MLB #51 James Farrior -- Great Middle Linebacker, runner-up in defensive MVP voting last season
MLB #50 Larry Foote -- Very solid Linebacker, not a big "playmaker"
MLB #94 Rian Wallace -- Rookie Linebacker who can play inside or outside

ROLB #55 Joey Porter -- One of the best trash talkers and Linbacker in the NFL, good pass-rusher
ROLB #92 James Harrison -- Looked great at Linebacker, and on special teams last season

RCB #26 Deshea Townsend -- Good cover-man
RCB #20 Bryant McFadden -- Rookie second round pick, very tough and he could see some playing time
RCB #24 Ike Taylor -- Could be his last season with the Steelers

LCB #27 Willie Williams -- Solid veteran Cornerback
LCB #21 Ricardo Coclough -- Second round pick in 2004, great athlete, might be the starter
LCB #29 Chidi Iwuoma -- Gunner on special teams

FS #28 Chris Hope -- Hard hitter, he should be better in his second year as the starter
FS #23 Tyrone Carter -- Very solid back-up, could see time in Dime formation

SS #43 Troy Polamlau -- One of the best Safties in the game, big playmaker
SS #33 Russell Stuvaints -- Solid back-up

K #3 Jeff Reed -- Coming off his best year, he was very consistant
P #17 Chris Gardocki -- Very good punter

Just because of his blocking.....I think with the addition of Miller, Kranchicks days are numbered, and they like to use Rasby in running situations.

Very nicely done man! Good stuff.

Im not sure I'd put Rasby over Kranchick though, I think it will be close in camp.

I didnt notice you having clint kriedwalt on your list. He's a ST demon and captian of the ST. I'd be quite surprised if Kevin Spencer doesnt have him clint around. He and Chidi were 2 huge reasons we were good on ST the last few years, and Harrison will get some less time on ST because of more duty on the defense so I think its pretty imperative that we keep clint. I think we dump Bowman and use his roster spot for Clint.

2 NT's on the roster is all we usually carry.


Good stuff man !!!

Good post BB2W. I agree with Friday and Matt. I'm not sure Rasby will edge out Kranchick. He very well could though.

I think Kranchick is gone! He is the worst blocker of all the TE's. There is no need for him with Miller and Tuman. Rasby was used a lot last year in run situations.....he is like another offensive lineman. With Miller's blocking in question, and it has always been a concern for Tuman.....I think Cowher will see that Rasby is more valuable than Kranchick.

Nice BB2, I like it.

The corners are the spot to watch, I do agree. Wouldn`t be surprised to see two different starter by years end.

I personally would like Willie Parker to see the ball alot more. I think he is exciting to watch, and a possilble game breaker.

Thanks Cleve. :)

If Coclough and McFadden impressed coaches enough to both start. That would be awesome.....like a new era. With all the trouble we have had at CB, it would be a breath of fresh air.

As for Willie....I don't know if he wants the ball after that hit Sean Taylor put on him. :o I agree. They need to get him involved a little in every game

I'd like to see parker get some more chances too..but his opportunities will most likely be limited sitting behind the big 3 again.
