Steelers Sights and Sounds from Steelers Rookie Minicamp, Day 1 Published 2 weeks ago on May 10, 2019 By Alan Saunders 3shares Share Tweet Flipboard Reddit Comment EmailPITTSBURGH — The first official Steelers practice in advance of the 2019 season took place on Friday at UPMC Rooney Sports Complex on the South Side. The team’s draft picks took center stage, as first-round linebacker Devin Bush and third-rounders wide receiver Diontae Johnson and cornerback Justin Layne were among the 59 players involved in the practices, 18 of which were tryouts. Bush worked in a small group of players with inside linebackers coach Jerry Olsavsky, while Layne was in a mixed group of cornerbacks and safeties on backpedal drill. Johnson was part of a big group of receivers working with coach Darryl Drake. When the teams broke out in 11-on-11 drills, Bush called the plays for the defense, despite the presence of more experienced players, showing the coaching staff’s level of trust in the No. 10 overall pick. Layne worked at corner, while local products Dravon Askew-Henry and Tre Tarpley played a good bit of safety.
