Matt Verderame of Sports Illustrated ranked the four AFC North rosters from worst to best, and he had the Steelers dead last in fourth place.

“If the Steelers get a big leap from Pickett, they could take advantage of a favorable schedule, but it’s hard to rank Pittsburgh’s roster higher than fourth in this loaded division,” Verderame wrote.
