All 91 is a Pittsburgh Steelers Now series profiling each of the 91 members of the Steelers 2019 training camp roster.
21 • Sean Davis, fourth-year safety
Last year: Took over after Mike Mitchell was released and started at free safety in 15 games in his first season at the position. He had worked at strong safety and as a pub-package underneath defender in his first two seasons.
Stats: Had a team-high 80 tackles, 59 of which were solo tackles. Seven passes defended was third on the team. Also had an interception and a quarterback hit.
Had nine tackles at Baltimore on November 4. Had five tackles and this interception against New Orleans on December 23.

Camp outlook: Davis was injured on the first day of full-contact practice on Sunday. Assuming he returns quickly, his job should be secure, as most of the Steelers’ experienced backup safeties are better fits for the strong safety spot. AAF alum Kameron Kelly might be the exception.
Projected role: Almost definitely the starting free safety and should be in line for a lot of reps with mostly inexperienced backups.
