If you disliked the Conner's pick, blame Big Ben. Ben said that he really lobbied for the Steelers to get the bruising RB. http://www.steelersdepot.com/2017/05/roethlisberger-admits-pushed-hard-steelers-draft-conner/

Did he tell them to draft him a Rd early? Confused

Maybe Laughing I see a Bell-ish type RB who is a good receiver. Many don't like highlights but it is the same as watching an entire game. I look for what a player CAN do versus what he CAN'T do. JC impressed Ben with his route running plus the tape doesn't lie either.

Tomlin loves power RBs and now has two of them. I'm starting to actually love this pick. Like Ryan Anderson, take him in the 1st or the 2nd but you're getting a solid football player.
