Steelers All 91: WR/KR Ryan Switzer



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

10 • Ryan Switzer, third-year wide receiver/kick returner

Last year: A late addition to the team, coming over from Dallas after training camp ended, Switzer performed well as a slot receiver and kick returner in 2018.

Stats: Caught 36 balls on 44 targets for 253 yards and one touchdown. Also had six carries for 21 yards.

Returned 30 punts for an 8.4 yards per return average and 30 kickoffs for a 20.2 yards per return average. He was 12th in the league in kickoff return average.

Accolades, Highlights:

Scored a one-yard touchdown against Tampa Bay on Monday Night Football in Week 3.

Camp outlook: Switzer is one of a handful of players that are going to be vying for all the targets that Antonio Brown got last year.

With JuJu Smith-Schuster moving from the slot outside, it should create plenty of opportunities for Switzer. His primary competition for those catches will be Eli Rogers and Diontae Johnson.

Projected role: The first option in the slot and probably will finish third in targets amongst Steelers receivers.
