The Steelers made seven roster cuts yesterday, getting their offseason number down to 83. Released were WR Jason Chery, K Piotr Czech, LB Derrick Doggett, P Adam Graessle, NT Cordarrow Thompson, C Bradley Vierling, and CB Trae Williams.

Three additional players will need to be released when the final four unsigned rookies (Pouncey, Worilds, Butler, Scott) are signed to their entry contracts. The team needs to be at the 80-man roster limit when training camp opens on July 30th.

Let's revisit what the Steelers depth chart and camp battles are looking like now that spring workouts are done and some cuts have been made:



QUARTERBACK
LOCKS (3): Ben Roethlisberger, Byron Leftwich, Dennis Dixon
QUESTION MARKS (1): Charlie Batch (Will they keep 4 QBs through Ben's suspension?)



RUNNING BACK
LOCKS (2): Rashard Mendenhall, Mewelde Moore
LIKELY (2): Frank Summers (got lots of first-team reps in minicamp), Jonathan Dwyer
QUESTION MARKS (3): Issac Redman (looking like Redman has to beat out Dwyer for a spot), Justin Vincent, Demetrius Taylor (the only true fullback will get his shot to blow people up in Latrobe)



WIDE RECEIVER
LOCKS (2): Hines Ward, Mike Wallace
LIKELY (3): Antwaan Randle El, Arnaz Battle, Emmanuel Sanders
QUESTION MARKS (5): Antonio Brown, Stefan Logan (in trouble if Wallace, Sanders, and/or Antonio Brown take his return duties), Tyler Grisham, Brandon London, Isaiah Williams



TIGHT END
LOCKS (1): Heath Miller
LIKELY (2): Matt Spaeth, David Johnson
QUESTION MARKS (2): Sean McHugh, Eugene Bright



TACKLE
LOCKS (2): Max Starks, Willie Colon
LIKELY (1): Jonathan Scott (was running second team RT in minicamp)
QUESTION MARKS (2): Tony Hills (second team LT in minicamp, but needs to show big improvement in Latrobe), Kyle Jolly



GUARD
LOCKS (3): Chris Kemoeatu, Trai Essex (also can play tackle), Maurkice Pouncey (replaces Essex at starting RG in Week 5?)
LIKLEY (1): Ramon Foster (2nd team LG in minicamp)
QUESTION MARKS (3): Chris Scott (the 5th round draft pick will have to show promise at guard or tackle), Kraig Urbik (see center position below), Dorian Brooks



CENTER
LOCKS (1): Justin Hartwig
LIKELY (1): Doug Legursky (was running 1st team center at minicamp with Hartwig coming off shoulder surgery)
QUESTION MARKS (1): Kraig Urbik (taking reps at second team center in minicamp, in addition to third team left guard)



NOSE TACKLE
LOCKS (1): Casey Hampton
LIKELY (1): Chris Hoke
QUESTION MARKS (1): Scott Paxson (a good insurance policy, but has no more practice squad availability)



DEFENSIVE END
LOCKS (3): Aaron Smith, Brett Keisel, Ziggy Hood
LIKELY (1): Nick Eason
QUESTION MARKS (3): Sunny Harris (the team likes him, but is there room to keep? Probably has to beat out Eason), Steve McLendon, Doug Worthington



INSIDE LINEBACKER
LOCKS (4): James Farrior, Lawrence Timmons, Larry Foote, Keyaron Fox
QUESTION MARKS (3): Stevenson Sylvester, Patrick Bailey (special teams ace facing a tough numbers game), Renauld Williams



OUTSIDE LINEBACKER
LOCKS (2): James Harrison, LaMarr Woodley
LIKELY (2): Jason Worilds, Thaddeus Gibson
QUESTION MARKS (3): Andre Frazier (feeling what Bailey is feeling), Johnny Williams, Lindsey Witten



CORNERBACK
LOCKS (2): Ike Taylor, Bryant McFadden
LIKELY (4): William Gay, Joe Burnett, Keenan Lewis, Crezdon Butler
QUESTION MARKS (2): Anthony Madison (doubtful special teams is enough reason to keep him this year with Arnaz Battle a good gunner on punt coverage), Dexter Pittman



SAFETY
LOCKS (4): Troy Polamalu, Ryan Clark, Will Allen (former special teams captain), Ryan Mundy
QUESTION MARKS (3): Tuff Harris, Justin Thornton, Da'mon Cromartie-Smith



SPECIALISTS
LOCKS (2): Daniel Sepulveda, Jeff Reed
QUESTION MARKS (2): Greg Warren, Matt Stewart
