The Pittsburgh Steelers have added a big time tight end and center with their Day 2 picks of the 2021 NFL Draft class. Some fans love the moves, others will obviously hate it. Here are some of the best of the best reactions to the additions of Pat Freiermuth and Kendrick Green.
Just got off the phone w/ Kendrick Green... Boy is already ready to work...— Zach Banner (@ZBNFL) May 1, 2021
It looks like Zach Banner has already welcomed Kendrick Green to Pittsburgh. Both guys will look to utilize their aggressive skill sets to boost the Steelers ability to run.
If you picked two players from the draft who felt like Steelers players they'd be Najee Harris and Pat Freiermuth— Matt Miller (@nfldraftscout) May 1, 2021
Like Matt Miller said, Najee Harris and Pat Freiermuth really do look bred to be Pittsburgh Steelers. Both thumpers, both elite size for their position, and both players have sky high potential.
@pat_fry5 We Are!! Welcome to the Pittsburgh Steelers! It was an honor to call out your name. I look forward to seeing you in Pittsburgh. @steelers @acereros @PennStateFball— Franco Harris (@francoharrishof) May 1, 2021
Franco Harris has been on the red carpet guy for all of the Steelers draft picks. I’m not sure anyone loved the boos in Cleveland more than Franco.

Run DMC got the Browns crowd riled up with this epic player announcement! One of the best moments of the draft, and then proceeds to announce the Steelers newest player is a mauling center, Chef’s kiss.
Nobody will complain if he turns out like Heath Miller. Another need addressed, they will get to the rest— dan fraser (@dancoolin) May 1, 2021
It’s fair to say a lot of Steelers fans were hoping for a big time Center with the 55th pick. While that didn't happen, the Steelers landed a tight end with massive potential. If Freiermuth starts putting up some big plays I expect fans to quickly forget about who they passed on.

There’s no better welcome wagon than a team with so many hall of famers. This time it was soon to be hall of famer, Alan Faneca welcoming Kendrick Green to the black and gold.

welcome to the Squad. TE’s vs DT’s in practice get ready lol
Cam Heyward has also been taking in the draft and sharing a ton on social media. Not sure about this drill but the Penn State, Ohio State rivalry will live on in the locker room.
