The Steelers have been going through various changes over the last few seasons, and the three b's era is dead. Antonio Brown is now in Oakland, and well, Le'Veon Bell checked out a while ago. Pittsburgh comes into the new year with James Conner back in a full role, and some new names looking to jump ahead in the WR2 spot. JuJu Smith-Schuster is now the full-time WR1, and has shown the immense upside already. The Steelers defense is on the younger side, but have a lot of talent that we will be watching out for this year. Devin Bush and Justin Layne are two rookies, but Bush will be the one that steps into more snaps right away.

Preseason Analysis: Steelers Want to Send Ben Off with Another Ring

How Does The Receiving Core Shakeup?

The departure of Antonio Brown is going to create a big hole in the offense. JuJu Smith-Schuster will slide into the number one role, and that is a role he can thrive in. We saw him really put up numbers the last few seasons and he has the ability to continue. The WR2 spot is going to be freed up as well, and there were a few options heading into the season. Donte Moncrief is the front runner at the moment, but James Washington is making a case for some more snaps in his second year. Washington was a successful college player, but was buried on the depth chart in his rookie season. Diontae Johnson is a rookie that will occasionally get snaps, but isn't quite in the mix just yet. Look for Moncrief to get going if healthy, and durability has always been his struggles.

Can This Defense Take A Step Forward?

Pittsburgh's defense struggled at times last season, and this wasn't always the case over the last few decades. They are someone of a rebuilding defense, but have a lot of youthful talent. They added that a few pieces throughout the draft, and the big name was Devin Bush. He will jump into some snaps at linebacker, alongside TJ Watt and Bud Dupree. Stephon Tuitt and Cameron Hayward should provide a good front three that can get to the quarterback. The secondary is where we have some questions, and Joe Haden going down early in camp is something to watch out for. This group has potential to get going, and a lot will rely on how good the secondary can be. However, the front seven is very above average and could help out.

Can Vance McDonald Fill A Full Time Role?

Vance McDonald saw 72 targets last season, and caught 50 balls for 610 yards and four scores. There is a lot of hype around McDonald because Brown is gone, and the other tight end from last year is as well. Jesse James sucked up some snaps and targets from McDonald. Overall this is a year where McDonald should see a bump in targets, but let's not get crazy. He has some connection with Ben Roethlisberger which bodes well for the both of them, and a moderate upgrade in last year's numbers is to be expected, but a ceiling year would be a bit of a stretch. There are still plenty of other options that will be getting targets. 80-90 targets is in his range of outcomes, and I would be surprised to see anything more.
