The Pittsburgh Steelers had their first look at their 2021 rookie class yesterday for the first day of Rookie Minicamp. We were able to get a first glimpse of Offensive Coordinator Matt Canada‘s new offense, which involved a “decent amount” of pre-snap motion according to second round draft pick, TE Pat Freiermuth.
Speaking of Freiermuth, we also learned that he is not a fan of the nickname, “Baby Gronk” which he earned during his time at Penn State. Regardless, Freiermuth was turning heads on Friday showing that he can be an elite red zone target come September.
For third round pick C Kendrick Green, we learned that him choosing No. 53 was requested by the young rookie in hopes to fill the “big shoes” of long-time All-Pro center, Maurkice Pouncey.
As for first round draft pick Najee Harris, first glance has players and coaches at UPMC Rooney Sports Complex using the word “impressive”.
