After weeks of speculation and discussion since the NFL Draft concluded, it’s time to actually see the Steelers new crop of rookies take the field.
This weekend opens Pittsburgh’s rookie minicamp, which marks the first time the rookies get together to train and learn the playbook. It’s rookie minicamp where people get to visualize that first glimpse of a player wearing the team colors and taking part in drills. That means Najee Harris, Pat Freiermuth, Kendrick Green, Buddy Johnson, Isaiahh Loudermilk and the rest of the rookies will be at the Steelers facility in the South Side to prepare before training camp for the entire roster begins at the end of July.
Every year one rookie seems to stand out among the rest during the rookie minicamp. For example, it was at the rookie minicamp in 2019 where fans and media first saw linebacker Devin Bush show off his brilliance and football acumen by calling out plays he was just introduced to.
Which rookie are you most interested in seeing at minicamp this weekend? Is it Harris providing a boost to the Steelers struggling running game? Is it Freiermuth? Or is it how Dan Moore, Buddy Johnson and Green will fill clear holes on the team?
