Pittsburgh Steelers training camp is in full swing at Saint Vincent College in Latrobe, Pa., with 90 players on the roster.
Collectively, those 90 players are like a block of wood that the Steelers will carve into a 53-man roster by Sept. 1. If the finished work of art is a masterpiece, the Steelers will have a shot at winning their seventh Super Bowl.
Unless your brain is made of pigskin, you’ve probably been doing what most people do during the summer. You’ve been vacationing, going to the beach, grilling and spending time outdoors. You haven’t had time to follow the Steelers’ every breath during the offseason.

Chances are that a player you haven’t heard of will be on the 53-man roster at some point in the 2013 season.
You might ask “Who?” when you read some of these names, but here is why each of them have a shot at dressing for the Steelers at some point in the fall.
