Martavis Bryant drops the final pass of practice.
Rain and cool temperatures have made for a comfortable first day in pads. The Steelers may not practice in 80-degree weather again until the weekend.
Roethlisberger continued to look good throwing the ball but was the victim of two drops, as Antonio Brown and LeGarrette Blount each dropped passes.
Daniel McCullers has impressive acceleration for a man his size. Once he gets moving, he is hard to stop. Emmanuel McCray found this out as McCullers ran right through him to force backup QB Landry Jones to scramble out of the pocket.
Jarvis Jones may have had a strong practice, but he wasn’t without at least one fault. On a running play to Blount, Jones tried to arm tackle him. Let’s just say that there are few linebackers in the league who can arm tackle Blount. Jones is not one of them.
Arthur Moats has been working as the top backup at outside linebacker and is beginning to look the part. He has shown signs that he can rush the quarterback and had his best practice of camp.
Derek Moye is not going lightly in the wide receiver battle as he made the best catch of the day. It was a leaping reception in which he caught the ball at its highest point to bail out his quarterback.
Martavis Bryant ended the final team drill of the day with a dropped pass on a crossing route. He was open and it hit him right in the hands.
The Steelers have taken a straightforward approach with Dri Archer by lining him up in the backfield and in the slot. Monday was the first time they used some trickery with Archer by running him on a reverse. He gained about eight yards before the play was blown dead.
