Steelers coach Mike Tomlin has released a full picture of the team’s depth as training camp continues at Saint Vincent College, where the team has held training camp since 1967.
After Ben Roethlisberger retired at the end of last season, all eyes turned to the quarterback position in Pittsburgh, where Pittsburgh will enter the year with a new starting quarterback for the first time since 2004. .
The Steelers signed quarterback Mitchell Trubisky to a two-year, $14 million deal in the offseason and drafted Pittsburgh quarterback Kenny Pickett with the 20th pick in the first round of the NFL Draft in April. .
The team also retained Mason Rudolph, who has spent the last few seasons as Roethlisberger’s main backup.

As expected, the depth chart showed Trubisky as the starting quarterback, followed by Mason Rudolph, with Kenny Pickett third and Chris Oladokun fourth.
After the starter, Tomlin has historically listed backups in order of years of service. As such, it’s hard to put too much emphasis on what the quarterback position (or other positions on the roster) looks like behind the starter.
Many expect Pickett to consider the Steelers’ long-term plans at quarterback after the capital draft the team used on him.
If Trubisky struggles this season or misses time due to injury, Rudolph or Pickett could be next in line.
