For the Pittsburgh Steelers, the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft is now a thing of the past. The team selected CB Artie Burns out of the University of Miami with the 25th overall pick in the draft, and the pick certainly made waves on social media. With Myles Jack still on the board, the Steelers stuck with the plan to help beef up the secondary by taking Burns with their top pick of the 2016 NFL Draft.
Take a look at some of the comments made by current, and former, players on social media surrounding the latest addition to the black and gold.
(Editor's Note: This article will be updated throughout the weekend as more comments and reaction are made.)
