I created this thread to let owners keep the league updated on how their rookies are doing this year. You can post stats, write ups or anything else you want to include. Are there any superstars? First round duds that aren't performing? Tell us HERE! The Steelers have been quite happy with their first and second round draft picks from this year. They are highlighted here: 1st round pick ROLB Jorduun Abrams: Abrams had big shoes to fill coming into pre-season as he took over for James Harrison when he retired. Abrams has played awesome recording 11 tackles and 1 sack in three games. Abrams fits well in the Steelers 3-4, even though he played 4-3 ROLB in college. 2nd round pick MLB John Lugo: Lugo has played just as good as Abrams has, if not better. These guys play next to each other and coach nellycuz couldn't have asked for two better rookies. Lugo fills in for Larry Foote as he was released and signed by the Ravens. Lugo has tallied 14 tackles in 3 games. The now veteran MLB Lawrence Timmons is a great role model for young Lugo. With these two rookies, the Steelers look to have one of the top LB core in the league for years to come. 3rd round pick CB John Scruggs: The starting rookie nickel back for the Steelers, Scruggs from LSU has shown us why we drafted him. Although he's only recorded 3 tackles in 3 games, Scruggs has shined as a KR for the Steelers, already posting up 2 100yd+ KR TDs in 3 games. He also has a handful of passes defensed. 4th round pick FS Ben Martin: Ben has helped us on special teams thus far, and also fills in as a 4th CB sometimes. Ben is a very fast FS and will be ready to step into the starting lineup if Troy or Clark go down with injuries due to their older age. Will look to start in the next year or 2 as the current safeties will retire soon. 5-7th rounds: 5th round ROLB Frankie Mlakar fills in on special teams with 4 tackles. A talented speedy LB who may be called on down the road due to injuries. 6-7 round draft picks are simply fillers for the roster at this time. Coach nellycuz is really proud of how well his organization drafted this year and looks to focus a little more on the offensive side of the ball next year in the draft.
