Steelers All 91: FB Roosevelt Nix

Published

on

All 91 is a Pittsburgh Steelers Now series profiling each of the 91 members of the Steelers 2019 training camp roster.

45 • Roosevelt Nix, fifth-year fullback

Last year: “Rosie” played in all 16 games for the Steelers as a fullback and special teamer. Did not make any starts for the first time in his career.

Stats: Made one carry for four yards, caught four passes on six targets for 38 yards. Also had seven tackles, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery on special teams.

Camp outlook: Nix will likely be the team’s top fullback, but it’s a big question how much of an impact the top fullback will have with Randy Fichtner featuring more two-tailback sets with Jaylen Samuels in front of James Conner.

Projected role: Sixth-round pick Sutton Smith playing some fullback throughout camp will keep Nix’s spot just slightly in question, but it’s tough to envision him losing it at this point to a player that hasn’t been a regular on offense since high school.
