Ranking the Steelers: 50-45


Taking an idea from my pal Jeremy Fuchs over at Giants Gab, I decided to take the top 50 Steelers currently on the roster and over the course of the next couple of days break them down, and give a little summary on each player. Today we will start with numbers 50 through 41, and move on down till we hit #1.

50. Chris Scott Offensive Tackle

This 6’4, 319 pound tackle was one of the Steelers 5th round picks in the 2010 draft (151st pick overall), and never saw the field during the 2010 season. He started the final 39 games of his career at Tennessee, and will be given a shot in 2011 to be a backup tackle for the club.

49. Crezdon Butler Cornerback

On a team that needs help in the secondary, it would be a welcome sight to see this former Clemson CB step up and get more playing time. He appeared in four games in 2010, and made one tackle. At one point he was projected to be a late first round selection before his senior year, but has gone downhill ever since. He needs to step up or he’s going to find himself looking for work in 2011.

48. Anthony Madison Cornerback

A vet that has bounced around with four teams over his 7-year career, Madison appeared in 16 games with the Steelers in 2011 as a backup and special teams player, making 24 tackles with a pick in the regular season finale against Cleveland. Clearly a backup to add depth to the secondary, he can once in a while make a play in the nickel or dime, but will never challenge for a lot of playing time.

47. Arnaz Battle Wide Receiver

The Steelers inked Battle from San Fran a season ago thinking he could add depth to the WR core, but then the team drafted a pair of WR’s in Emmanuel Sanders and Antonio Brown, and Battle was an afterthought. He made no catches and probably won’t be on the roster this season unless there’s a big injury.

46. Ramon Foster Guard

Played in 44 games and also earned All-SEC honors as a freshman a junior at Tennessee. Made a couple starts in 2009 for Chris Kemoeatu, and didn’t turn many heads on the coaching staff. Was inked as an undrafted free agent. Will again fight for playing time on the O-line in 2011.

45. David Johnson Tight End

This seventh-round pick in 2009 made the roster, and then this past season made four grabs for 46 yards. Showed some talent as a blocker as well, starting three games in 2009 at fullback.

Next: Players 44-40
