The Steelers have added their first player of the 2018 NFL Draft and they did it in memorable fashion on a couple of fronts.
Linebacker Ryan Shazier walked to the podium with the help of his fiance to announce his team’s pick with the 28th overall pick in the draft. Shazier suffered a spinal cord injury last season and is still moving slowly, but it was a heartwarming and inspiring moment given how far he’s come to get to this point.
He’s one of the missing pieces to the puzzle, said Francisco Rodriguez of Long Branch, N.J. He’s explosive, he’s dynamic. I think he’s going to bring a great energy to New York. I think he’s going to bring Giant Pride back. I think everyone is excited. I don’t think we’ve seen this much excitement since LT got drafted.
Rodriguez and Herrera are season-ticket holders who join a group of about 20 that make an annual road trip. Last year it was to Oakland, Calif., where Manning’s consecutive streak as a starter came to an end. It wasn’t a happy time.
We were cheering ‘Eli 鈥?Eli,’ Rodriguez said. This year the group is already booked for Atlanta. It’s a new beginning, Herrera said, still holding his son. We’re tired of losing.

John Raines of Rutherford wanted Barkley, too. A Giants fan for four decades, the Vietnam veteran didn’t want any of the quarterbacks.

21 years ago, my life changed forever, Pace wrote. To future draftees, being drafted # 1 meant I had even MORE to prove than anybody else. The NFL Draft is just a step in the process. Doesn’t matter where you land! To those not drafted, I blocked for a guy named Kurt Warner 鈥?nuf said.
A good message for the first overall pick, for the last rookie invited to a tryout, and to every rookie in between.
Rosen, however, is not described as Jake Lamb Jersey a real humble kid by his former high school teammate.
Oh yeah, he’s definitely different, Mama said. He speaks his mind and sometimes that kinda gets him in trouble, as we’ve seen. He’s his own person and he’s gonna stay true to that, he’s not gonna change for anybody. That’s why I like him. He comes into work and he’s gonna get the job done.
