Sights and Sounds from Steelers Minicamp, Day 3

Published

PITTSBURGH —  The final session of the Steelers 2019 minicamp had a youthful focus, as Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin gave many of his veteran players the day off.

Instead, Tomlin wanted to get a good look at the youngest Steelers in the final practice before training camp.

“We talked very openly at the beginning of this thing that we weren’t going to distribute reps evenly, we were going to distribute them appropriately,” Tomlin said. “We just felt like the young guys need additional reps to gain experience, to display know-how, to gain and display conditioning, all the things that are going to be put them on even footing, all 90 men, to compete in Latrobe.”

NICE GRAB

Even though Steelers running back James Conner was among the veterans that did more watching than practicing on Thursday, he still took part in the team’s stretching activities — and was alert enough to make a one-handed grab when a ball came his way.

SIGHTS AND SOUNDS

With the veterans watching (and chirping) from the sidelines, two of the Steelers’ 2019 draft picks took center stage, as running back Benny Snell made first-round linebacker Devin Bush miss with a nifty juke in a one-on-one drill.
