The Pittsburgh Steelers 2017 NFL Draft Day 2 is in the history books, and the Steelers had three picks starting with wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster in the 2nd round of the selection process. Followed by two 3rd round picks. Cameron Sutton of Tennessee and James Conner of Pitt.
The selections didn’t take long to sink into the heart of Steelers Nation, and that includes the players Smith-Schuster, Sutton and Conner will now call teammates.
Check out what current, and former, players had to say about the selection, as well as welcoming him into the fold as the newest member of the black and gold!
