The Steelers held their pre-draft press conference on Monday and General Manager Kevin Colbert addressed a couple of issues before he began taking questions from the media.
One was their move to exercise their 2019 option on linebacker Bud Dupree’s contract and the other had to do with running back Le’Veon Bell. Bell got the franchise tag for the second straight year earlier this offseason and didn’t join the team at the start of the offseason program last week as he continues looking for a long-term deal.
Victor broke his leg at the end of the 2016 season, was arrested for DUI in November and looked out of shape and sluggish in between. He had some traits pre-injury, but the Raiders probably could have gotten him after the draft. Grade: Poor.
The announcement of the pick was made by former Lions wide receiver Nate Burleson, who sported a Beverly Hills Cop style jacket on stage before dedicating the pick to the hard-working people of Michigan.
So, the Bears jumped up and traded for this pick after the Lions traded it to New England.
With the pick, they added an offensive weapon, something that second-year quarterback Mitch Trubisky desperately J.J. Jansen Youth jersey needs. The Bears must have really like Miller because they traded away next year’s second round pick to get him. And, if we’re being honest here, that’s probably going to be an early second round selection.

Listen, any player you take, I’d say, any position except for maybe corner or receiver out of the SEC, they’re tough and they’re physical. We feel really good about that. There’s no issues with his durability for us.
The selection of Johnson follows the team’s first-round pick of offensive lineman Frank Ragnow and shows the franchise’s commitment to improve its league-worst ground game. The Lions ranked last in both rushing yards per game (76.3) and per carry (3.4 yards) last season.
Johnson said he was too busy at Auburn to notice Detroit’s struggles running the ball, but he’s happy to be part of the solution. And while he might not know the team’s recent history, he recently noted on Twitter his favorite running back to watch is Lions Hall of Famer Barry Sanders.
