For the Pittsburgh Steelers, the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft is now a thing of the past. The team selected DB Sean Davis out of the University of Maryland with their 2nd round pick in the draft, and the pick certainly made waves on social media. With Andrew Billings still on the board, the Steelers continued to stock their defensive back cupboard in an attempt to improve the 30th ranked pass defense in 2016.
Take a look at some of the comments made by current, and former, players, as well as media experts, on social media surrounding the latest addition to the black and gold.
