Pittsburgh Steelers: Breakdown and Depth Chart Analysis at Running Back
Jeffrey Phelps/Associated Press

After years of talk, it appears as though the Pittsburgh Steelers have finally gotten serious about upgrading the ground game. Pittsburgh tied for 27th in rushing last season and should not have a difficult time improving this area.

Head coach Mike Tomlin made two significant changes to the coaching staff. He hired Mike Munchak to coach the offensive line and James Saxon to coach the running backs. But the changes did not stop there.

There was almost a complete overhaul with the personnel at running back.

The Steelers did not re-sign Felix Jones, Jonathan Dwyer or LaRod Stephens-Howling to play behind Le’Veon Bell. They decided to move in a completely different direction, signing LeGarrette Blount and drafting Dri Archer.

These additions will just be part of the equation, as the Steelers try to improve a ground attack that produced just 1,383 rushing yards on 3.5 yards per carry last season.

When it comes time for training camp, expect the Steelers to put an emphasis on rushing the football. This will make running back one of the most interesting positions to watch.

Here is a breakdown of Pittsburgh’s running back depth chart as the start of training camp approaches later this summer.
