During the 2018 NFL Draft

During the 2018 NFL Draft
Darrius Heyward-Bey Jersey , in the third round the Pittsburgh Steelers took an offensive tackle named Chukwuma Okorafor out of Western Michigan.If you are like me, you heard/saw the name you had the same response: “Who?”The more you read/watched of Okorafor as a player you saw immense talent, just very raw in nature. The best description I read of the man they call ‘Chuks’ stated how if he would have attended Alabama, and not Western Michigan, he would have been a first rounder.Okorafor played sparingly in 2018, starting one game against the Denver Broncos and being the extra tight end on heavy run packages. This participation was more than many expected of him on draft day. However, what I didn’t know was Okorafor’s complete story to get to the NFL.He posted the following on his verified Twitter account a few weeks ago:When you look at the dates in his tweet, you can’t help but be amazed by his journey. He had played football just 7 years before being drafted in the NFL. Not many can say they had just this amount of exposure to such a technical game/position before reaching the professional ranks.If Okorafor is somehow able to continue on this trajectory he very well could become the next great offensive tackle for the Steelers for years to come. As he enters his second NFL season he will be a large part of the team, either as depth or a potential starter if veteran Marcus Gilbert isn’t brought back due to his inability to stay healthy over the past two season.Could Okorafor be the latest diamond the Steelers found in the rough? It may be too early to suggest this, but the more you learn about Okorafor the realization sets in you might not want to bet against him. The Pittsburgh Steelers’ season is over, but if you think the news surrounding the black-and-gold is over — think again. For the drama-filled Steelers, things are just heating up, and this is where the daily links article comes in. You might have missed some key news, and we fill you in and give you the latest, and sometimes greatest Jordan Berry Jersey , news surrounding the Steelers.Today in the Black-and-gold links article we take a look at how although Antonio Brown might own almost every single wide receiver record in Steelers’ franchise history, he falls well below the mark in terms of the greatest in team history.Just a few names should fall above Brown:Hines WardJohn StallworthLynn SwannJust to name a few...Let’s get to the news:John Steigerwald: Antonio Brown the Steelers’ greatest receiver? Not so fastBy: John Steigerwald, Pittsburgh Tribune-ReviewAntonio Brown, the greatest wide receiver in Steelers history 鈥old on a minute.It seems to have become a requirement to include the declaration that Brown is the Steelers’ greatest receiver ever in any story about his most recent immature, narcissistic, selfish, stupid behavior.If you’d like to make the argument that he’s the Steelers best wide receiver ever, go ahead. There are plenty of stats to back you up. Multiple 100-catch, 1,000-yard seasons. Touchdowns. He’s among the NFL all-time greats if if we’re talking about stats.But could we please acknowledge the obvious fact that NFL passing and receiving numbers have been ridiculously inflated over the last 10 years?To say that Brown is the Steelers’ best receiver ever is, of course, saying that he has surpassed both Lynn Swann and John Stallworth. If we’re going by raw numbers there is no argument, but we’re talking about different eras.Ben Roethlisberger threw 675 passes this season.Terry Bradshaw led the NFL in just about every important passing statistic in 1978 and he threw the ball 368 times. He had four games with more than 30 attempts and never more than 33. This season, Roethlisberger had three games with fewer than than 30 attempts — and it was 29 in two of them. He threw more than 50 passes three times.In 1984, when he was 32 Alejandro Villanueva Jersey , John Stallworth caught 80 of the 443 passes thrown by Mark Malone, David Woodley and Scott Campbell, none of whom is expected to make the Hall of Fame. That’s actually a slightly higher percentage of catches than Brown’s 104 of Roethlisberger’s 675 this season.Only someone who never saw Stallworth or Swann play or has no appreciation for the huge difference in eras would believe Brown is the undisputed best wide receiver in Steelers history.(To read more, click the link in the headline...)Antonio Brown says on Instagram Live he’ll discuss Steelers drama ‘at a later date’By: Jeremy Fowler, ESPNAntonio Brown made public comments about how he’s going to make public comments about the Pittsburgh Steelers’ openness to trading him over unbecoming behavior.The All-Pro receiver took to Instagram Live on Friday in a video that appeared to feature friend Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson.“On a serious note, I’m going to address stuff at a later date, deeper details,” said Brown, who was smoking a cigar in the video. “All positivity, all encouraging. That’s all it’s about, man. My actions will speak louder than my words. My actions speak louder than anything I can ever say.”The Steelers plan to shop Brown after he had a flare-up with a teammate, missed a workday before the season finale against Cincinnati, and failed to show up for exit meetings after the season. Coach Mike Tomlin benched him for the Bengals game, and team president Art Rooney II told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on Thursday that all options are on the table for Brown’s future, save a release.Brown has respectfully declined comment through a representative. But sources close to the All-Pro say he’s prepared for anything -- open to returning Chris Boswell Jersey , but also to the chance to show he can succeed in another offense.(To read more, click the link in the headline...)Video: Snoop urges Steelers, AB to ‘figure it out’By: Dejan Kovacevic, DKPittsburghSportsSnoop Dogg’s illustrious rap career has intersected with Pittsburgh in more ways than one, beginning with his wearing of the old diagonal-lettered Penguins sweater in the iconic ‘Gin and Juice’ video from 1993, but continuing on to a fervent fandom of the Steelers and beyond.On this Saturday night at Staples Center, he played DJ for the Penguins-Kings warmups, then dropped the ceremonial first puck between an amused Sidney Crosby and Anze Kopitar.And hey, as long as he was in the house, someone really needed to ask him about Antonio Brown, right?You’re welcome:
