The Steelers want even more versatility from their defensive backs

Mike Tomlin loves versatility. The more a player can do, the better their chance of making the roster, and the better their chance of seeing the field. The more one-dimensional a player is, the less likely they are to get snaps.

That’s been true for a while, but in 2020 the Steelers are pushing that much farther than in previous years. We see that on offense where wide receivers have 86 yards and a touchdown rushing, we have seen Terrell Edmunds line up as a receiver in a bunch formation, we’ve even seen rookie guard Kevin Dotson come in as a second eligible lineman.
