Steelers’ QB depth chart has Mason Rudolph No. 2, Dwayne Haskins No. 3, Josh Dobbs No. 4

Mike Florio breaks down the potential future for Jimmy Garropolo with the San Francisco 49ers and which records Tom Brady can still break along with Super Bowls.

The Steelers have released their first depth chart of training camp, and although that’s not necessarily a reflection of where the players will ultimately end up, it’s an interesting opportunity to take a look at the quarterback competition in Pittsburgh.

Ben Roethlisberger, of course, is No. 1 on the quarterback depth chart. No surprise there.

In the backup battle, Mason Rudolph has the early lead as the No. 2 quarterback. New arrival Dwayne Haskins is No. 3. And Josh Dobbs, who was drafted by the Steelers in 2017 but has never started a game and thrown only 17 passes for them, is the No. 4 quarterback.

Haskins bears watching in training camp and the preseason. A first-round pick who was unceremoniously dumped last year in Washington, Haskins has undeniable talent but failed to put it together in his first NFL stop. Pittsburgh is a place where he could have a year to develop behind Roethlisberger and then compete for a starting job again in 2022, but it’s also a place where if he blows his second chance, he may not get a third chance.
