The Pittsburgh Steelers are one of the oldest and most veteran teams in the NFL, yet there are a bunch of young guys making contributions in their first years in the league.
I have already talked about how well first-round pick Maurkice Pouncey has done for the Steelers so far this season, and I still believe he should be the Offensive Rookie of the Year.
Second-round pick Jason Worilds started off slow in the preseason, however, has been great on special teams and had the hit on Chad Henne that essentially won the game for the Steelers in Week 7.
Emmanuel Sanders was the Steelers' third selection and other than fumbling his first return against the Dolphins, has been electrifying in the return game and has shown good route running and hands as a receiver.
Fifth-round pick Stevenson Sylvester has been great on special teams, and sixth-round pick Antonio Brown showed his potential with that 89-yard kickoff return for a touchdown against the Titans in Week 2.
I was upset to hear that the Steelers lost Thaddeus Gibson to the 49ers, and Jonathon Dwyer could see his first playing time this weekend against the Patriots due to injury.
