🏈 Former Ravens defensive tackle Haloti Ngata provided a humorous moment for Ravens fans when he introduced his sons before making Baltimore’s third-round pick.

Ngata: “They were all born in Baltimore and they were all raised to say one thing.”

His sons: “Steelers suck!”

🏈 NFL Network lead draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah thinks Pittsburgh Steelers’ third-round pick Payton Wilson could have been a first-round pick if he didn’t have a lengthy injury history. He had Wilson ranked 41st on his draft board.

🏈 Chris Simms of NBC Sports thinks the Steelers got another steal at the wide receiver position by scooping up Michigan wide receiver Roman Wilson in the third round (84th overall).

“Stop me if you’ve heard this before… the Steelers stole a good WR in the middle rounds. Roman Wilson was my #5 WR, I think he would have been in the Day 1 convo if his offense gave him more chances. I get Steve Smith/Stefon Diggs vibes from him,” Simms wrote on X.

🏈 Steelers linebacker Patrick Queen was pumped to see the Steelers draft Payton Wilson out of NC State in the third round (98th overall).

🏈 Steelers quarterback Russell Wilson, who played his first three years of college ball at NC State, also welcomed Payton Wilson to Pittsburgh.

🏈 Pro Football Focus tabbed the Steelers third-round selection of Michigan wide receiver Roman Wilson as elite.

🏈 Indianapolis Colts general manager Chris Ballard went off on anonymous sources tearing Texas wide receiver Adonai Mitchell for character concerns.

“Put your name on it. We tear these young men down. … It’s crap. This is a good kid.”

🏈 Chris Simms thinks the Steelers are getting back to their old ways by building up the trenches. He thinks Zach Frazier is a perfect fit.

“Damn. The mofo @steelers getting back to there roots. Just kick the shit out of people!!! 😜. 2nd great offensive line pick in the draft. Zach Frazier has all the tools and attitude to be the next great Steelers center,” Simms wrote on X.

🎥 NFL Network analyst Brian Baldinger broke down film on Zach Frazier.
