The Pittsburgh Steelers selected Artie Burns in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 25th overall.
Burns is the fourth cornerback selected, behind Eli Apple (10), Vernon Hargreaves (11) and William Jackson III (24). Burns is generally regarded as more raw than the corners selected ahead of him, but he has the athleticism to imply similar or equal upside. At 6-foot, 193 pounds, Burns has long arms ideal for jamming (33.25 inches) to go with 4.46 speed.
Le'Veon Bell -- who tore his MCL in Week 8 of the 2015 season -- is pleased with the work he has been doing of late with Owens Recovery Science, ESPN.com reports.
Per the report, Owens "focuses on maintaining muscles around a rehabbing knee using a treatment called blood flow restriction." Though Bell's injury rehab appears to be progressing in the right direction, at this stage the Pittsburgh Steelers don't have a precise timetable for the running back's return, but Bell does hopes to be back in time to be ready for Week 1 of the upcoming season.
