Preseason Projection of Pittsburgh Steelers 2013 Roster

June 8th, 2013 at 10:38 PM

The Pittsburgh Steelers have completed OTAs and should be relatively healthy as training camp draws near. They do have two projected starters on the mend in quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (knee) and tackle Mike Adams (abdomen/forearm). Both players will miss minicamp next week, but both are expected to be ready for the opening of training camp in July.

Looking back at the close of the disappointing 2012 season, general manager Kevin Colbert said he expected a different roster in 2013. In looking at the players at OTAs, that will definitely be the case. In all, the Steelers lost seven starters to release or free agency, as well as a handful of back-ups and special teams performers. By our projections, it appears that there could be 20 different faces on the opening day roster in comparison to the 2012 opening day unit.

Here is our projected preseason attempt at the opening day 2013 roster:
