As the Pittsburgh Steelers prepare to face the Buffalo Bills in their third preseason game, it's time to take a look at who will make up Coach Mike Tomlin's 53-man roster. Of course, doing this after just two preseason games leaves a lot of room for error, but this is my pick for the 53-man squad.

4- Willie Parker
