The most interesting competitions, however, will come in the return game.
Pittsburgh had a very successful returner in Stefan Logan last season, but the team is at no shortage of challengers to overtake his roster spot this season.
The Steelers brought back Antwaan Randle El, who is a capable punt returner.
While he may frustrate fans with his sideways motion on returns, he is very dependable in fielding punts and may be a safety net if the other competitors struggle.
With the loss of Santonio Holmes, they no longer have a big play threat in the return game, so this is where a young player may step in.
Logan had a relatively successful season with a 9.3 yards per return on punts, including three returns over 20 yards, and 26.7 on kickoffs, including four over 40 yards. However, Logan did not have a return touchdown.
There will be a number of challengers for Logan’s spot. Besides Randle El and possibly Moore in situational spots, Burnett should once again be given an opportunity, as well as rookie wide receivers Emmanuel Sanders and Antonio Brown.
Coming out of Central Florida, Burnett was a playmaker in the return game averaging 14.5 yards on punt returns and 28.7 yards with two touchdowns on kick returns.
While he did not flash that potential as a rookie, Burnett may have more confidence as a second year player and showcase his skills.
Sanders averaged 13.8 yards on punt returns as a senior and had one touchdown, but is more of a quick player than a straight-line, speed guy.
The real potential threat is Brown.
The back-to-back winner of the MAC Special Teams Player of the Year, Brown was named All-MAC kick and punt returner several times while at Central Michigan.
For his career, Brown average 15.5 yards on punt returns and had three touchdowns. He was just as impressive as a kick returner where he averaged 23.7 yards per return and had two career touchdowns.
Keep an eye out as to who can consistently field the balls cleanly. Often times returners who are electric in college cannot transition to the NFL because they cannot handle catching the ball. If a returner has a fumbling problem, they will immediately be eliminated from the competition.
However, if a player can stand out, they will make a very positive contribution in the battle of field position. There is always room for a playmaker on special teams and it will make for a great camp battle.
