Sights and Sounds from Steelers Rookie Minicamp, Day 2



PITTSBURGH — After a rain-soaked first outing, the Steelers rookies and tryouts took to the practice fields at UPMC Rooney Sports Complex on the South Side on Saturday under a bright, blue sky.

On the defensive field, the focus was on the passing game, as the linemen worked on pass-rushing moves while the linebackers and defensive backs worked on coverages as an eight-man unit.

Fourth-round running back Benny Snell and the rest of the running backs were working on catching passes out of the backfield, while the tight ends — including fifth-round pick Zach Gentry — were taken to school by coach James Daniel on run blocking, with head coach Mike Tomlin taking an interest in the proceedings.

Check out that and more in Saturday’s sights and sounds:
