The Pittsburgh Steelers have several position battles still undecided with just over a week to the team’s regular-season debut against the Cincinnati Bengals. Here are our predictions for the biggest position battles on the roster.
Left guard: Kendrick Green vs Kevin Dotson

Kendrick Green has been dreadful in preseason and Kevin Dotson seems more confident at this point.
Left cornerback: Levi Wallace vs Ahkelly Witherspooon

Both guys will get plenty of reps but Ahkello Witherspoon’s experience in the system gives him an edge here.
Left inside linebacker: Devin Bush vs Robert Spillane

I don’t look for either guy to get a huge volume of snaps this season but Devin Bush’s athleticism wins out over Robert Spillane’s physicality.
Quarterback: Mitch Trubisky vs Kenny Pickett

Fans are clammoring for Kenny Pickett but for the coaches, the safest move is to give Mitch Trubisky the starter job.
