Realistic expectations for the Steelers running backs in 2019

Joe and Brian bounce back to the offense this time as they continue their position group analysis for the 2019 Pittsburgh Steelers.

This time the hosts teardown the running back depth chart. Steelers Nation is giddy over the addition of fourth-round draft pick Benny Snell, but where and how does he fit into the offense’s workload?

The better question is, will he factor in much at all this season?

That answer is left to analyzing Pro Bowl running back James Conner and his three-game 2018 replacement, second-year pro Jaylen Samuels. The Steelers may be the deepest they’ve been in years at the running back position, but history tells us that the coaching staff may prefer a certain way to approach splitting carries.

The recent pattern Joe and Brian breakdown is why fans may need to temper their expectations for the young backs this upcoming season.
