Snell has the physicality and burst to thrive in the Steelers offense if called upon. He might push Jaylen Samuels for the No.2 role this year. Even if Samuels wins the job, look for Snell to earn touches as a runner if James Conner gets hurt.

Summary

Benny Snell is a touchdown hog. He scored 48 times over the last three years in college at Kentucky, and Snell had to fight hard for quite a few of those scores. Snell is your classic banger who makes his living between the tackles. He's got good instincts for running the ball and hasn't seen a collision he doesn't like. Snell can grind down an opponent as the game goes on and is known as a rhythm runner. He's not a fast or elusive player and has to improve his pass blocking if he wants to be in on passing downs. Snell is a two-down thumper who is competing for the no.3 spot on the depth chart behind James Conner and Jaylen Samuels. (May 10)
