Jaylen Samuels is expected to serve as the best backup RB behind James Conner. Stevan Ridley is there too, but Samuels is more versatile and is significantly younger. Must-add if you have Conner.— Dave Richard (@daverichard) November 13, 2018
Both Samuels and Ridley have gotten some carries this season, but at this point in time, it appears Samuels will be the true backup. The Steelers are very high on the rookie out of NC State.
